Sharks Add Two Ahead of Week 8
JACKSONVILLE, FL– Jacksonville has made multiple additions to their roster this week; they first acquired kicker Marc Orozco from Albany and then signed former Shark to a contract, wide receiver and defensive back Erick McIntosh.
Orozco has seen limited action in the league, appearing in only nine games since the start of the 2022 season, including just one this year. His skill is evident, however; in that one game, he scored three deuces for Albany.
He was also a member of last season's NAL Championship-winning team. He joins two other champions from last season on the Sharks roster, Sam Castronova and Marquel Wade, who both signed contracts with Jacksonville earlier this month.
McIntosh was a member of Jacksonville's inaugural season in the National Arena League in 2017 and part of the first-ever NAL Championship team with the Sharks. 2017 was by far the best season of his career to date. It was a year in which he was named to the All-NAL team, one of four Sharks named to the team in the league's first season.
He has had a successful arena career since joining the circuit, which has taken him everywhere from Iowa to Albany. Most recently, he played in San Antonio for the Gunslingers in 2022.
Both signings come days after the Sharks took down the defending champion Albany Empire 79-34 at the Tank. The team hopes that these signings can help spark a strong run the rest of the season for the 3-2 Sharks.
