Quarterback Nick Davila, who threw for a franchise-record 2,935 yards and 66 touchdowns last season, will return for the 2009 Spokane Shock, the af2 team announced Thursday.
Davila is the sixth member of the National Conference championship team to re-sign with the team.
“Without a doubt, Nick is one of the premier quarterbacks in the game,” Shock head coach Adam Shackleford said. “He had multiple offers in the AFL, but when that wasn’t an option any longer, he knew that playing in Spokane was the best move to make. I have never been around a quarterback who works harder on the field and in the film room.”
In 13 regular-season games, Davila completed 67 percent of his passes with nine interceptions. He finished third in the league in passing efficiency (119.2).
Five scheduled Greater Spokane League meets were postponed. No makeup date was announced for Central Valley at Mead, East Valley at Lewis and Clark, Gonzaga Prep at Ferris, Mt. Spokane at University and North Central at Rogers.
•The 37th Tri-State tournament at North Idaho College, scheduled for today and Saturday, is still set to go, although several teams may have to cancel.
Riverside’s non-league doubleheader at Freeman was postponed by the day’s heavy snowstorm.
•The Fight for the Fish, the annual doubleheader/spirit competition between Lake City and Coeur d’Alene scheduled for today, has been postponed.
