King signs with Shock

Spokane has signed Mac linebacker Micah King, who had 5.5 sacks for Iowa last year.

This doesn’t necessarily signal an end to Aaron Robbins’ time in Spokane. Robbins, Spokane’s Mac LB last year, is looking at other options, with an eye on outdoor football. Spokane wants Robbins to return, but King gives them an option if Robbins goes elsewhere. Interestingly both players were with the 2009 Arkansas Twisters with Robbins winning the starting job and King eventually being released. The two might battle for a job again.

On a separate topic, Jack linebacker Antwan Marsh has bulked up to 230-235 pounds, up from his 2010 playing weight of 215. He’ll remain at Jack, but head coach Rob Keefe stressed that Marsh will still be able to handle defensive back in a pinch, as he did in the ArenaBowl.

“He’s a total workout warrior,” Keefe said. “He was a safety in college at 235 pounds. I know for a fact, he’ll be faster because he’s also doing speed training.”
