SPOKANE, Wash. – Since the organization’s creation in 2006, the past eight seasons have positioned the Shock as one of the most successful sports franchise of any professional league in history. On the field Spokane has produced a staggering 130-39 overall record with three championships, the most recent being in 2010 in their first season as a member of the Arena Football League.

The 2014 season will mark the ninth season for the Spokane franchise since their inception in 2006 and in appreciation for the greatest fans in the AFL, the Shock will be hosting their “9 Weeks for the 9th Man” program in honor of the 9th Man.

Beginning Thursday, January 9th, 2014 the Shock will begin a nine week honor program for Shock fans and supporters which will include special prizes for participants in online trivia posts, special game experiences for season ticket holders, and school appearances by Shock players and dancers around our Greater Inland Northwest communities. Prizes include single-game ticket vouchers, authentic Shock game jerseys, and autographed footballs.

Trivia questions will be posted online through the Shock Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. Those who answer the trivia question correctly will be entered into a drawing to win the designated prize for that question.

Four game experience packages will be awarded to season tickets holders via a raffle system for those that have purchased their seats for the 2014 season. All four packages include up to four (4) participants and t-shirts.

Two “Game Day Experience” packages that complete the perfect game day for any diehard Shock fan will be awarded. These packages include a pre-game tour of Spokane Arena, a meal with the Shock team pre-game, and access to the field during team warm-ups.

This package includes special access to Shock Training Camp, the opportunity to talk with the coaches, an invitation to watch a private practice, a meal with the team after practice, and an autographed practice ball.

One “Game Ball Delivery” package will be awarded, giving the fans early access to the game, an invitation to watch pre-game warm-ups on the field, and the opportunity to deliver the game ball for the night’s game.

Shock Assigned Dontrelle Johnson To 2014 Roster 

Dontrell Johnson (5-10, 180, Murray State) makes his rookie debut in the AFL with the Shock in 2014. Johnson spent two years with the Murray State Racers contributing at defensive back and as a return specialist. His first year with the Racers in 2010 Johnson returned 15 punts for 342 yards and two touchdowns while also returning 16 kickoffs for 323 yards. His added 67 tackles (7.5 for loss) and two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) earned him second-team All-OVC Defensive Back and second-team All-OVC Return Specialist honors. Johnson added another 40 tackles, one interception, 11 kickoff returns for 182 yards and 10 punt returns for 162 yards. Johnson was signed as an undrafted free agent by the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars in 2012. He has also spent time with the NFL’s Detroit Lions. Johnson spent two years at Garden City Community College prior to his time at Murray State where he recorded 11 interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns.

“"Dontrell's talent really jumped out on film, both as a defensive back and as a return man. We expect him to compete for playing time right away,” Shock General Manager Ryan Rigmaiden said.
