Sanders on Iowa Barnstormers: 'Our whole mindset is revenge'

Defense wins championships – even in the Arena Football League. That is a major reason why the Spokane Shock have begun to turn things around – now halfway through the season.

Well, that and Terrance Sanders.

The Shock defensive back has collected five interceptions in back-to back wins. First it was New Orleans. And last Friday it was against Philadelphia.

Sanders hopes to keep the streak alive this week on the road against Iowa. But more importantly, he wants revenge.

"Our whole mindset is revenge, payback," said Sanders. "These guys got us the first week of the season – our first loss. It was still a bad taste all the way up until now. We just got above .500, so set us behind early. Now that we're on track we're looking to roll these guys, return the favor and put it to them."

It was during the Shock's opening game against Iowa that then-starting quarterback Erik Meyer was knocked out of the game thanks to a viscous hit from John Mohrning. Mohrning was ejected from the game and suspended by the league. The Barnstormers went on to win the game in overtime, leaving the Shock players and fans stunned.

Fast forward to this week: the Shock moved up two spots in the coaches poll on Wednesday to No. 8. Iowa remains unranked at 4-6. Last week they mustered just 19 points in a 55-19 loss to Jacksonville.

Friday's game will be broadcast on a tape delayed basis on SWX, SWXRightNow.com and through the Syncbak app for viewers with mobile devices in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.
