Shock sign Porterie, Havrilla

Two AFL rookies are getting a crash course in quarterbacking from Andy Olson as the Shock take on the difficult task of replacing Erik Meyer.

Meyer is out for at least six weeks with a broken collarbone. Spokane signed Donovan Porterie and Dennis Havrilla on Wednesday. Former EWU quarterback Kyle Padron also tried out but wasn't signed as of Wednesday. Here's my article that ran in today's S-R.

Spokane, playing for the second time in five days, doesn't have much time to coach up the new starting quarterback. Olson said he'll probably make a decision on the starter after today's practice. The Shock face Pittsburgh on Friday.
