From Shock P.R. ...

The Spokane Shock announced today that DL Brigham Harwell has been added to the 2010 roster. Harwell, 6-0 300, most recently played for the New York Sentinels of the UFL registering 16.5 tackles and one-half sack.

Prior to joining the Sentinels, Harwell signed with the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent and was released during mini-camp.

“Winning football games is done up front in the trenches,” Head Coach Rob Keefe explained. “Brigham Harwell is a physical presence on the defensive line who can physically dominate his opponent. He is just another example of a person who deserves to be in the NFL and he just needs to continue to play until that opportunity comes back.”

Harwell was a four-year player at UCLA where he tallied 145 tackles with six sacks including 26.5 tackles for loss. In his senior season, Harwell was selected as a second-team member of the All PAC-10 team.

The Spokane Shock will kick off the 2010 season on Friday April 2nd as they host the Milwaukee Iron.
