Los Angeles, CA  (November 9th, 2015) – The LA KISS have been assigned Quarterback, Nathan Stanley, who was most recently on the San Jose SaberCats where they won the 2015 Arena Bowl Championship. The 3rd year quarterback looks to bring his championship pedigree to the LA KISS for the upcoming 2016 season.

"We are very excited to have a player of Nate Stanley's caliber join the LA KISS,” said Omarr Smith, Head Coach of the LA KISS. “Over the last two seasons, Nate has proven to be one of the top up-and-coming signal callers in this league. I have seen Nate mature on and off the field over the last two seasons and I am looking forward to watching Nate compete at the Quarterback position. I think big things are in the future for Nate and the LA KISS.”

Stanley, a 6'4”, 225 pound Quarterback from Southeastern Louisiana University, is entering his 3rd year in the AFL. Stanley’s career started in 2014 where he threw for 2,436 yards and 50 touchdowns as a rookie for the San Jose SaberCats. The following season Stanley was a back-up Quarterback for the SaberCats but he still put up impressive numbers; throwing for 723 yards and 20 touchdowns in 9 games. In week 7, Stanley was named “Russell Athlete Offensive Player of the Week”, when he threw for 242 yards and 7 touchdowns in a victory over the Las Vegas Outlaws.

“We are very happy to have Nate a part the LA KISS family,” said Joe Windham, CEO of the LA KISS. “We know he will fit in our organization nicely since he has been with Omarr the last two seasons so there should be no learning curve.”

Stanley is originally from Tahlequah, Oklahoma where he played high school football at Sequoyah High School. He is also one-fourth Cherokee Indian.
