LA KISS HAVE BEEN ASSIGNED JOE CLANCY, SHAINE BOYLE,
AUSTIN FRANKLIN AND JT GILMORE
Los Angeles, CA (April 30th, 2015) – The Los Angeles KISS made moves to their roster this week by signing four free agents as they head into their rivalry match-up against the Las Vegas Outlaws on Monday, May 4th at 7:30pm at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, NV. The LA KISS hopes these moves will give their roster a boost so they can even the 3 game series at 1-1.
With QB Adrian McPherson on the sidelines nursing an injury, the LA KISS looked to add depth to the quarterback position with the assignment of Joe Clancy. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Clancy played college football at Merrimack College where he became the first player in the Northeast-10 Conference history to pass for more than 4,000 yards in a single-season.
The LA KISS offense got another boost at the wide receiver position with the addition of ex-St. Louis Ram Austin Franklin. The 5-foot-11, 189-pounder collected 160 receptions for 2,439 yards and 19 touchdowns over his three-year career as a standout player at New Mexico State. His deep threat ability will help open the field and also complement star wide receiver, Donovan Morgan.
The LA KISS also added to the secondary with the assignment of DB Shaine Boyle. The 5-foot-11 speedster stacks up at 185 pounds and perfected his craft at Faulkner University in Alabama.
The last of the bunch is linebacker JT Gilmore who started his 2015 AFL rookie season with the Arizona Rattlers. The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Gilmore signed as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2011 with the Minnesota Vikings. Gilmore played three seasons at Division II Western Oregon before transferring to NAIA member Southern Oregon for his senior season.
