WEEK 11 PREVIEW: UNDEFEATED SHARKS TAKE THE ROAD AGAINST RAGE

05/24/2017 8:44 AM -

JACKSONVILLE –  The (8-0) Jacksonville Sharks remain undefeated off of their win last weekend against the (4-3) Monterrey Steel, and now look to increase their win streak to nine as they take the road against the (0-7) Corpus Christi Rage in Corpus Christi on Sunday, May 28 at 7 p.m.


 

The Sharks won their most recent game against the Steel 42-13. In a unexpected change of events, the Sharks decided to continue the season without head coach Mark Stoute as he was relieved of his duties Tuesday, on the same day the Sharks named Siaha Burley as the new head coach of the team, Coach Burley comes to the Sharks after starting the 2017 season with AFL’s Cleveland Gladiators as the team’s offensive coordinator. Under a new head coach this Jacksonville team is looking to continue their streak.

 

The Rage most recently lost to the Monterrey Steel 33-30, but played their closest game of the season. Both their offense and defense have improved, scoring the most points of the season and allowing the fewest points of the season during this game.

 

The Sharks last played the Rage in Week 8, coming out with a 71-6 win. It was the largest lead the Sharks have had all season, and the least points they’ve allowed.

 

The Sharks simply need to keep playing the way they've been playing in order to win. This team has showed consistency and willpower to the last seconds of the game on both offense and defense. Nick Belcher has been a standout player on the team as he leads the league in all kicking categories, which is an added bonus to the Sharks high-scoring offense.

 
This game will be available on YouTube Live and iHeart Radio (97.3FM). A link for YouTube to the live feed will be available on nationalarenaleague.com and will be provided on Shark’s social media prior to kickoff.
