SPOKANE, Wash. - The Arena Bowl victory celebration continued Wednesday night, as players, coaches and fans gathered outside the Spokane Arena for a rally.

Head coach Rob Keefe and quarterback Kyle Rowley were among those on the team who accepted the Spokane County Commissioner Office's proclamation making September "Spokane Shock Month".

Even after 11,000 fans packed the arena five days ago, they still can't get enough of their Shock. And the team is thankful for the community's support.

"These players come here because of the fans we have," said Keefe. "It's not because of me, it's because of the fans. And we have the best fans in the Arena Football League, sell out every single game. They're unbelievable, the people embody everything the AFL should be."

"I'm just so happy for the city," added Rowley. "We really look at this as a total team effort. When I say 'team' I mean the city of Spokane, the players, the coaches, the ownership. It's just a gutsy city that has a willpower."
