Fever: The Search for Players Begins

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Tri-Cities Fever have their new owner, GM, and now they have brought back Coach Pat O'Hara.

Now comes the players, and Coach O'Hara says he has been in contact with a number of them, including last year's quarterback Collin Drafts.

He says part of the problem right now is that Arena Football League 1 is so new and players are still trying to figure out how the new league will work.

O'Hara and the Fever can't officially sign players until November 1st but O'Hara says players willl be brought in from all over.

"There's definitely a nucleus of players we'd like to bring back from the Tri-Cities but then build on that with some more veterans, see what type of AFL players are willing to play under the new economic model and then college graduates that are coming out of school, so it's going to be a mix," said O'Hara.
