Power Sign Big Names to 2013 Roster
With less than a month until AFL pre-season camp begins, the 2013 Pittsburgh Power’s roster is filling up. The Power’s Personnel Staff have been hard at work signing returning players from the past two seasons and adding key new players.
Returning to the Power for a second season is Center, Beau Elliot. Elliot has four years of AFL experience, having played for Chicago before coming to Pittsburgh in 2012. While playing for the Rush, Elliott earned 2nd Team All-AFL honors in 2010 and First-Team All-Rookie in 2008. A native of Western Pennsylvania, Elliott played at Highlands Senior High School (Natrona Heights, PA) and then collegiately at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP).
Also, new to Pittsburgh is former LSU Quarterback, Jordan Jefferson. As a Tiger, Jefferson tallied 4,733 career passing yards and 34 career touchdowns. Jefferson, also made LSU record books for the most rushing yards by a quarterback with 1,018 career yards and ranks fifth in passing touchdowns (34), rushing touchdowns (12), and wins as a starter (24) for the Tigers.
“I am extremely pleased with the recruiting and retention efforts of our football staff this off-season,” said Power General Manager, Michael Gorham. “I feel confident that the addition of stars like Jordan Jefferson and recently signed Alvin Ray Jackson, to current keystone players like Elliott, Mike Washington, and Dominie Pittman, the Power will be a formidable force in 2013,” Gorham remarked.
