Storm's Oates Makes Transition



Bookmark and Share

The game Is Quicker.. The field shorter.. And a not so friendly wall waits for you on the sidelines... The differences are obvious.. But for Jeremiah Oates who's used to catching footballs on a 100 yard field, his first Indoor football league TD was extra sweet.

jeremiah Oates says:"I caught it and spun off the wall into the end zone and it was pretty exciting I can't wait to have more."

And like normal. The ref asked for the ball..

Oates says:"He asked for it.. But I gave him the One finger and said this one is mine."

A nice little trophy for a what could be A good weapon for quaterback Terrance ..

Terrance Bryant says:"He's one of those guys that's willing to make plays just get the ball on his hands and he will shine with the ball."

But it's not just the dimensions that are different in the indoor football league.. it's the speed.

Oates says:"Every thing is extremely fast like its all faster and you're never really wide open like there's always going to be someone right around you. You just need a qb that's good at that and Terrance is good at that."

Kurtiss Riggs says:"Usually it takes receivers a while to adapt to the small setting he picked it up very well and it fits his style of play he's very good against man coverage he knows when to sit in zones and he can go up and get it."

The First TD in the books for Jeremiah Oates.. Making a smooth transition from the traditional game to the Storm Shelter
