Erik Hedin signs with Spokane Shock

1st Team All-American Eric Hedin has signed his 1st pro contract.
As reported on's twitter feed and's facebook page this past Tuesday became official yesterday as the Spokane Shock announced they have signed Linfield All-American Defensive End Eric Hedin for the remainder of the season.

The Shock sit at 6-7 on the season with 5 games remaining on the season as Spokane is still pushing to try to make the Arena League playoffs. Hedin will see action this weekend in his 1st professional game as the Shock travel to New Orleans to play the New Orleans Voodoo.

Hedin is the 4th Wildcat this spring/summer that is actively playing professional football. 2x All-American QB and Linfield Quarterback Coach, Brett Elliott, is in the top 5 in most offensive categories as he's lead his Georgia Force to an 8-6 season and are in the thick of the AFL playoff race.

Over in the German Football League, 2010 Linfield stand-outs, Aaron Boehme (D3 All-American) and Paul Nishizaki (D3 All-Region) continue to help their Schwabisch Hall Unicorns to a 7-0 start as Boehme leads the GFL in total yards per game and a host of other offensive categories and Nish is doing what Schwabisch Hall had hoped and that's dramatically improved the 'Corns rush defense as Schwabisch Hall is 3rd in the GFL in Rush Yards Given up per game.

Eric Hedin's hometown paper, the Kitsap Sun ran a story yesterday with some quotes from Eric on getting signed with the Shock.
WC11 is expecting many AFL QB's fall victim to Hedin as every NWC QB did in 2010.
