KENNEWICK, Wash. -- It is that time, time to separate the men from the boys, time for the Tri-Cities Fever to make final roster cuts.
Tri-Cities must cut a roster that currently sits at around 30 to 21 before Monday's season opening game at Fairbanks. Plus, the Fever have yet to name their starting quarterback.
Fairbanks is already 1-0 on the season after knocking off Alaska in their season opener.
But, the Fever are loving their roster so far.
"We think the guys that we've brought in are very talented," said Head Coach Adam Shackleford. "They've played at a high level. We have got guys from Florida State, San Jose State, Louisville, and guys that have played big time college football. And most of these guys had a shot in the NFL too so they got a taste of what that is."
"Our team is amazing," said Fever Defensive Back DeVon Walker. "I didn't know we were going to have this much talent in camp, which makes it fun. It's like a pick-up basketball game when you are having fun, you got a lot of great players making great plays, you get excited. But, this is our permanent team. It's not a one time thing. It's fun."
