Warriors Add New Players to the Fold

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Content is a word not in the Yakima Valley Warriors vocabulary. After last week's 54-25 loss to Wenatchee Valley, the team added 3 players to bolster the roster.

One new player the Warriors have high hopes for is wideout James Mayfield. They hope he can add depth to the team. Mayfield played under Co-Owner Michael Mink as an Oregon Knight. The addition to the wide receiving corps brings in more than an extra set of hands.

"Competition is most definitely good anytime," said Quarterback Jason Williams. "To be able to push each other, and get better, and then [have] a little bit more experience coming in."

"He's a 6'4 guy," said Mink. "He's a leaper. He can get the deep pass, [go for] deep routes for us. Plus, underneath he's got big hands. He's a big target for our quarterback to see."

"It's very exciting," said Mayfield. "Anytime you get to strap on the pads, its always exciting. It's just another opportunity to get to do something I love so I look forward to it. When the ball is in the air, I mean my job is to go get it and that's what I do."
