The Spokane Shock announced today that DB Dahnel Signfield, OL Antonio Narcisse, and LB Aaron Robbins have been added to the 2010 roster.


Singfield,6-0 195, has two years of AFL experience playing for the Utah Blaze in 2007 and the New York Dragons in 2006. As a member of the Blaze, Singfield tallied 42.5 tackles with one interception in eight games. As an AFL-rookie with the Dragons, Singfield collected 63.5 tackles with seven interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns, and was named to the AFL’s All-rookie team.


During his three-year career in the af2 (Memphis - 2005 Manchester - 2008, Rio Grande Valley - 2009), Signfield recorded 277.5 tackles with 17 interceptions and 75 pass break-ups.


“Dahnel is an athletic veteran who knows the ins and outs of the Arena game,” Head Coach Rob Keefe said. “He has put up consistent numbers in the af2 and at the AFL level and I’m excited to bring him into the mix for 2010.”


Narcisse, 6-2 315, spent the 2008 season with the Cleveland Gladiators where he played alongside Shock DB Alex Teems. Narcisse started four games for the Gladiators and anchored an offensive line that allowed only 13 sacks all season. That season Cleveland advanced to the Conference Championship before losing to the eventual Arena Bowl Champions, the Philadelphia Soul. Narcisse spent his rookie season with the New Orleans VooDoo and started all 13 games he played.


Before entering the AFL, Narcisse played at Portland State where he was named First Team All-Big Sky team, and a Pre-season All-American.


“To be a center at this level, you have to be a leader,” Head Coach Rob Keefe explained. “But not only do you have to be a leader, you also have to be an athletic big man and Narcisse has those attributes.”


Robbins, 6-3 275, spent the 2009 season with Arkansas and collected 37 tackles – including three sacks – with two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery for the Twisters.


Prior to his professional career, Robbins played collegiately at the University of Wyoming. During his first two years as a Cowboy, Robbins lined up as a tight end but switched to defensive end as a junior and collected 81 tackles with seven sacks in 25 games.


“Aaron is a classic example of a player who is not quite on the map, yet,” Head Coach Rob Keefe explained. “He did great things for the University of Wyoming and for the Arkansas Twisters but now we will be able to put him on the map – nationally – here in Spokane. He is a high-energy, athletic player who plays with a lot of intensity. He is capable of putting up some big numbers that will give him the attention that he deserves.”
