Sanders strikes football, family balance

Terrance Sanders, who has been Spokane's MVP for the first 11 games of the season, is one busy man.

He's having the best season of his five-year arena football career. Before and after practice, Sanders spends much of his time with his family (that's two-year-old Tiana pictured above stretching at practice with Sanders' teammate Josh Ferguson). Read more about Sanders in my feature story that will run in Friday's S-R.

Also, Spokane made several roster moves Thursday, putting OL Chris Pino (knee) on injured reserve and DL Louis Holmes on other league exempt. The Shock signed former WSU defensive lineman Brandon Rankin and ex-Idaho offensive lineman Sam Tupua.

Rankin was honorable mention All-Pac-12 last season. Tupua started at guard last season for the Vandals.
