The Spokane Shock announced on Friday that wide receiver Raul Vijil was added to the 2010 roster. He is the seventh member of the 2009 ArenaCup Champions to re-sign with the team.
Vijil, an Eastern Washington University graduate, holds several all-time franchise records including receiving yards (3,869), receptions (339), touchdown receptions (98) and all-purpose yards (6,846).
In each of the last three seasons, Vijil has been selected as a first team all-af2 receiver.
While Vijil is proud of his accomplishments in the af2, he is approaching the upcoming season as chance to start fresh.
“I’m coming in here with a new slate – forget about the things I’ve done in the past,” Vijil explained. “I have to earn my spot on the team, just like everyone else. It’s going to be tough – training camp is going to be very competitive. I’m excited more than anything."
