The Spokane Shock placed four players on the National Conference All-af2 first-team. Quarterback Nick Davila, center Kyle Young, receiver Raul Vijil and defensive end Ben McCombs made the first unit. Vijil (pictured above) made first team for the season straight year and Young was a second-team selection in 2008.

Spokane has had a first-team receiver four consecutive years (Charles Frederick in 2006, Antwone Savage in 2007 and Vijil the last two seasons). 

Defensive back Sergio Gilliam and offensive lineman Ryan Belcher made second-team. Gilliam and Belcher  made first-team a year ago.
