The Arena Football League is back in business after imploding and shutting down for 2009. And that means work for some former Noles who we were cheering a few short years ago.
The exception is Damiam Harrell, pictured above making an impossible catch for the Colorado Rush. Harrell had the bum luck to play for FSU when WRs like Peter Warrick and Ron Dugans were the go-to guys (although knee surgery didn't help in cracking the lineup). But Harrell blossomed in the indoor league. Even set an AFL season record for TD catches with 61, and was the league's 2006 Offensive Player of the Year.
Today Harrell is running routes for his sixth Arena League team, the Milwaukee Iron. And at 35 years old, well past realizing his dream of suiting up for an NFL team. Still, it's a paycheck and another chance to show he can burn much younger guys, as in the highlight photo.
