Hear what the Pittsburgh Power (2-5) have to say as they try to avoid a second three-game losing streak in this 2012 season in Saturday night’s game against the visiting Georgia Force (3-4).
Top receiver and former Aliquippa product Mike Washington chimed in on the matchup, coming off a 13-catch effort against the arch-rival Cleveland Gladiators that set a new single-game team record. “Joystick” also collected 170 yards and three touchdowns last Saturday to earn AFL Playmaker of the Week honors for Week 8 of the Arena Football League’s regular campaign.
There will be a slight adjustment to the Power’s receiving corps this week. Joining Washington alongside starting quarterback Bryan Randall will be former Wannstedt-era Pitt receiver Oderick Turner, who has been missing in action due to injury since Week 1. Turner, a New Jersey native who gained arena football experience playing for the Trenton Steel of the Southern Indoor Football League, talked with us about what he brings to an already talented group.
In addition, you’ll get a scouting report on the Force from us, and from Power head coach Chris Siegfried.
