Kristopher has been selected All-Pro 4x and has a league title under his belt. The DAY AFTER surgery, Kris helped lead the Ohio Silverbacks to the PAFL T2 Championship and an eventual appearance in a National Bowl Game.
"Kris has led his past two teams to championships. We aren't sure if it is his spin move or his sheer drive to make the play on every down but whatever it is it's working and we like it. Kris has an amazing personality, enjoys the game and has the attitude and leadership skills to make sure those around him are enjoying themselves as well. A true leader on and off the field. We are blessed to have him back on board with us and are certain he will have another amazing season"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
