STEELHAWKS ADD ANOTHER ALL-PIFL PLAYER TO D-LINE
Veteran Steelhawk Larry Ford Returns to the Valley
Bethlehem, PA: The Lehigh Valley Steelhawks are excited to announce that they have signed another All-PIFL defensive lineman. Veteran Steelhawk Larry Ford (6’4, 260, West Virginia) returns to the Lehigh Valley for the 2014 season.
Last season with the Steelhawks Ford led the team with 7.5 sacks (7th in the league), breaking the team’s single season record high. He finished the season with 17 tackles, 7 tackles for a loss, 3 forced fumbles and 3 fumble recoveries. Ford was voted to the All-PIFL 2nd team for his performance during the 2013 season.
At the close of the Steelhawks season, Ford signed with the Orlando Predators (AFL) to finish out their season. In just one game played, he managed to record a half a sack, and 1.5 tackles.
Ford was in camp with the Pittsburg Power earlier this year but says he is eager to rejoin a strong Steelhawk team. “I’m excited about coming back. Going to be great to play with Adam again and all the new guys we have. From what I see it looks like we have a good team that can take us to a championship this year. I came back because I couldn’t end on what happened last season. Can’t wait to get the season started and try and lead this team to a championship!” Ford is joining a fierce Steelhawks’ defensive line that looks to terrorize opposing offenses.
