'stangs shore up D-line, backfield

The Milwaukee Mustangs of the Arena Football League continue to tweak their roster with three games remaining.

On the eve of their Friday, July 8th, game in New Orleans against the 3-12 VooDoo, the 'stangs (4-11) have added some girth to their defensive line.

Sean Enesi, a 6-foot, 290 pounds former Utah State Aggie, will plug into a slot on the D-line and clog up the middle.

That might be in response to Cleveland Gladiator QB Kurt Rocco's rushing touchdowns last Saturday, including the game winner with three seconds left.

Enesi went undrafted in the NFL's harvest this past April. He 55 tackles, two and a half for a loss, and forced a fumble in two years at State. Enesi was a two-time, All Central Conference first team selection at El Camino Junior College and two Mission Conference titles.

The backfield gets back to normal as Mykel Benson, 6-1, 260, returns from league suspension. Benson has amassed 151 yards and found the end zone 14 times, good for sixth in the AFL.

The team released D-lineman Broderick Stewart and wideout Brent Holmes to clear roster spots for the additions. The emergence of Dwayne Eley, Jr. made Holmes expendable. Holmes caught 59 passes for 542 yards and five TDs in 13 games this season.

Head Coach Bob Landsee continues to battle through the adversity of the close losses this year and build a foundation for the team in 2012.

The 'stangs return home on Friday, July 15th, when the Iowa Barnstormers come to the Bradley Center. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the game can be obtained at the BC box office, through Ticketmaster, at www.MkeMustangs.com or call Julie at the team's office, 414-224-4000.
