SaberCats add Former Cheyney University Standout to the Roster
December 23, 2013
The San Jose SaberCats recently added three new players including wide receiver Dominque Curry, a 6'3" 230 pound Philadelphian who used to play for Cheyney University of Pennsylvania. The Arena Football League (AFL) team also added offensive lineman Ray Feinga and quarterback Nathan Stanley to the roster.
"We are excited to add players of this caliber to our team during the off-season," said Owner and Head Coach Darren Arbet. "Curry adds another big body to our receiving corps and Feinga was one of the best linemen in the country during his time at BYU."
Curry, age 26, has spent the last four seasons in the National Football League (NFL). Before being on the practice squad for Carolina and Detroit, Curry was active for all 16 games of the 2011 season for the St. Louis Rams. In 2010, he appeared in two games for the Rams, and blocked a punt before a knee injury ended his season. Curry played his final collegiate season with California University of Pennsylvania after spending three seasons at Cheyney where he earned All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference East selections three times as well as PSAC Rookie of the Year in 2006.
Curry's father, Dominique Stephens, is Cheyney's Head Men's Basektball Coach. "I am very happy and proud for my son to get the opportunity to play in the AFL," Stephens said. "He loves football and wants to continue his career playing on the field. We spoke about other opportunities outside the NFL that would keep him playing and being around the sport he loves. This opportunity keeps him prepared and in shape for his next NFL call. He would love to continue his career in the NFL and this is another route in accomplishing that goal."
