We had a request to do a midweek for monday because of injuries.
Its been a busy week in Honolulu
First The Blue Pacific hired Red Zone as Team President and General Manager to resurrect a Franchise that has only won 22 games in the last 5 Seasons.
Two Malcontents, DE Jimmy Brady and RB Wyatt Doggett, were dealt to Tulsa for 3.15 in this Draft and Tula's 1st round pick next year.
SLB Sherman Schultz was dealt to Albany for DE Peyton Shaw.
Its clear that Red Zone is cleaning House and bringing in as much youth as possible to build the foundation for a strong and competitive team.
Northwestern QB Devante Brandon was Drafted at 1.4 to give Offensive Coordinator Matthew Perkins the signal caller he needs to build his "Big Kahuna" Offense.
Brandon won't be brought along slowly, he walks in the door as the starter.
At 3.2 FB Sean Williams was selected to give RB Jalen Valerio the Lead Blocker he lacked the last 2 Seasons, and to provide another receiving threat out of the backfield, as well as another strong pass blocker.
At 2.3 CB OJ Renner was selected and at 3.15 DE Joe Atkins was the pick, making it obvious that defense is also a priority and the team wont be one dimensional.
There have been rumors of a slight rebranding of the team, to the Honolulu Sharks, Once the League decides whether or not to approve this...a new Logo will be released to the media.
