But for FSU fans, there's less reason to watch the indoor league this season. That's because only four Noles show up on Arena League rosters.
Eric Thomas, OL for the Arizona Rattlers. Not to be confused with the FSU quarterback with the same name from the 80s, this Eric Thomas played in the mid-to-late 90s.
Damian Harrell, WR/Chicago Rush. Arguably the top receiver in the league, Damian is the AFL's second all-time in TD catches. You may remember he had two solid seasons at FSU, 1995 and '97, playing in the shadow of guys like Peter Warrick and Ron Dugans. He's one of those players who blossoms once he gets to the pros.
Clevan Thomas, DB/San Jose Sabercats. You saw him at Doak between 1997 and 2000. Clevan is now in his seventh season with the Sabercats and his 41 career INTs makes him one of the league's most feared DBs.
Adrian McPherson, QB/Grand Rapids Rampage. The sad saga of A.D.'s downward spiral continues in the Arena game. Playing in the league's smallest market, Adrian has mysteriously fallen from the starter to backup, ceding the position to a guy with an almost identical name -- former Wake QB James MacPherson.
