The Abilene Bombers are excited to announce the signing of two experienced receivers to their 2013 roster. Coach Joe Brannen has inked the 6'2", 195 pound Corey Alberty and 6'2" 210 pound Adrian Perez to contracts for the upcoming season.
"Both of these guys bring a number of impressive, football characteristics to the Bombers. Corey has been playing indoor football for 4 years now, including one season with the San Angelo Stampede, and last year with the Georgia Force of the AFL. Corey is a guy that the fans of Abilene will love seeing play.
He has great speed, catches everything, and most importantly he knows how to get open. I am very excited to have an outstanding receiver like Corey on our squad, but more importantly a man of his character," commented Brannen.
When asked about joining the Bombers, Alberty had this to say, "I am excited to come to Abilene because of the great fans. They are fans who deserve a championship. I respect Coach Brannen and his leadership and look forward to playing for him and his staff. My goal for the season is to see a group of men come together as a team to accomplish one goal, to bring home an LSFL championship!"
Adrian Perez comes to the Bombers after spending numerous seasons on the indoor circuit. Prior to that Perez played at the University of Miami and spent two seasons in the NFL on the practice squad. "Of all the things Adrian possesses, the biggest is one you can't coach, he can flat out fly." said Brannen. "I look for him to have a big year in Abilene and bring a lot of excitement to the turf. He is an explosive athlete that will make big plays both offensively and in the return game."
"I can't wait to get to Abilene and back to the world of Texas Football! I am excited to be part of this franchise with great coaching and the positive overall direction of the program," Perez said.
