The Lehigh Valley Steelhawks have announced that they have re-signed two-year Steelhawks veteran offensive lineman Shawn Lockett. Lockett was a key part of an offensive line that protected 2017 NAL MVP Warren Smith Jr. Lockett will be counted on as a veteran leader of a mostly young and inexperienced group of offensive linemen.
The Steelhawks have also signed rookie OL/DL Michael Williams Jr from Jacksonville University. Williams has experience playing on both the offensive and defensive lines. As a senior at JU, Williams started all 11 games on the defensive line and recorded 24 tackles, 4.5 TFL and two sacks.
The Steelhawks will look to add more talent to their 2018 roster when they hold their last open tryout next Saturday, Feb. 3. The tryout will be held at The Rink at Lehigh Valley in Whitehall, PA.
