Bell Joins the LA KISS Following Three Successful Years as Linebacker for the Spokane Shock

LOS ANGELES, CA – September 27, 2013 – The LA KISS announced today that they have been assigned former Spokane Shock linebacker Beau Bell. Bell is a three-year Arena Football League (AFL) veteran who has continued to grow his AFL career since 2011 to quickly become one of the best linebackers in the league.

“Beau is one of the best defensive players in the league and the exact type of player we are excited to build this franchise around,” stated Schuyler Hoversten, President of LA KISS. “Between his leadership capabilities, winning personality and incredible football talent, adding a player of Beau’s quality is sure to bring a new dimension of excitement to our 2014 season.”

Bell (6’2”, 240, UNLV) joins LA KISS following a stellar last three seasons as a member of the Spokane Shock. Throughout his time with the team, Bell collected 137 tackles (22 for a loss), 17 sacks, forced 6 fumbles and grabbed three interceptions. 2013 was a career year for Bell as he totaled 70 tackles, a team-high 8.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles for a loss.

“Beau’s incredible size and speed, coupled with his high football IQ, make him a beast on the defensive side of the field,” says Bob McMillen, Head Coach for LA KISS. “I for one could not be more excited to see what he can do on the field in a LA KISS uniform, and for the veteran leadership he will bring to our locker room.”

A Los Angeles area native, Bell played football at Tustin High School in Tustin, California, before embarking on his collegiate career at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. As inside linebacker at UNLV, Bell played in 41 games (starting 26) and was ultimately named the 2007 Mountain West Conference Defensive MVP. He was drafted in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft, and has additional experience in the United Football League and Canadian Football League.

GENE SIMMONS TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM SUNDAY
Gene Simmons To Sing National Anthem At Vikings-Steelers London Game

The Steelers-Vikings game will kick off at 6:00 p.m. UK time (which is 1:00 p.m. ET). Fans in the UK can catch the action on Channel 4, Sky Sports and Absolute Radio 90s. North American fans can watch the game on CBS.

We all should have heard of the band KISS. Their anthem of ”I Wanna Rock And Roll All Nite” is still used at sporting events around the world to hype up fans everywhere. Even if they haven’t heard of the legendary rock band, they may have seen some of the television shows featuring their lead singer, Gene Simmons. Simmons has been the star of such shows as “Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels” and “Gene Simmons’ Rock School”.

Gene Simmons has also shown his love for football recently. He is one of the co-owners of the new Arena Football League team, the LA Kiss, which will make their debut in 2014. It is only fitting that the international star would sing the national anthem of the United States for the first game in the NFL’s International Series on Sunday, September 29th, 2013.

This won’t be Simmons’ first time singing the national anthem at an NFL game. His most recent performance in front of an NFL crowd was in Oakland for their home game against the San Diego Chargers in 2012. Simmons had some words to say about the honor of being selected to sing the anthem:

“I’m excited to be touching down in London to sing our US National Anthem at the Vikings-Steelers game. I always love playing a role in these types of high-action, fast-paced games, not to mention returning to the UK and performing in front of some the best fans in the world!’’ – Gene Simmons
