Inoue Passing Stats Encouraging for Fever

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Tri-Cities Fever quarterback Tomo Inoue has actually put up respectable stats the past two games for the Struggling AF2 team.

Two weeks ago,  Inuoe entered the Spokane game in the second quarter and tossed for 182 yards and two touchdowns.

Last Saturday in the loss at Stockton, he had 312 yards and four touchdowns, the most yards by a Fever QB in nearly two years.  The team may be just 1-9, but the rookie from Tokyo has earned his teammates' respect.

"Quarterback is quarterback," he said. "American White guy, American black guy, Japan quarterback, Korean, Japanese, whatever. Quarterback is quarterback. So I have to do my best in the game."

The Fever host 8-2 Boise Saturday.
