SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Shock announced today that WR Braden Ledbetter and DB Jose Perez have been added to the 2012 roster. In other roster moves, LB Beau Bell and DB Bryant Nnabuife have been placed on Other League Exempt after they signed with the BC Lions of the CFL.

Ledbetter, 6-5 240, most recently played in the UFL as a member of the California Redwoods. Drafted by the Dennis Green-led team, Ledbetter was the only Tight End selected by the Redwoods that season. After a decorated career at Western Michigan, Ledbetter attended training camp with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent.

While at Western Michigan, Ledbetter was three-time All Conference Selection (2006, 2007, and 2008) and was also a two-time captain.  As a Bronco, Ledbetter collected 131 receptions for 1,513 yards and a school-record 20 touchdowns.

Perez, 6-0 180, was in camp with the Miami Dolphins earlier this season but was released in late August. A multi-sport athlete in high school, Perez was drafted by the New York Yankees in the seventh round of the 2003 Major League Baseball draft.

After three years of professional baseball, Perez walked on at San Diego State University, where he originally committed before he was drafted by the Yankees. As an Aztec, Perez recorded 72 tackles and two interceptions.  His senior season, Perez was selected as an All-Conference Honorable Mention.

Spokane opens up the 2012 season on Monday March 12th hosting the Iowa Barnstormers at 7 PM. For ticket information contact the Ticket Department at 509 242 7462 ext. 1.
