Former Mountaineer DT Scooter Berry signed alongside former teammate Johnny Dingle for the Jacksonville Sharks. Dingle was cut before the regular season began, but Berry is a main cog on the D-line. Coming into Saturday night’s game against the Iowa Barnstormers, the Sharks record stood at 3-5. After what transpired during the game, Barnstormers’ QB Chris Dieker will remember Berry for a long time.
The Sharks rolled over the Barnstormers 55-19 and Berry terrorized Dieker and the Barnstormers’ offensive line. Berry had 3 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and a blocked field goal in the game.
Bear in mind that in Arena style football, the quarterback has the ball in his hands for less time that he would in a college or NFL style game. For Berry to get 2 sacks in one game is an accomplishment. Berry leads the team in sacks on the season with 7.
