The reigning Arena Football League champion Arizona Rattlers got some good news heading into the beginning of their 2013 season, and head coach Kevin Guy was the first to deliver it.
Happy to have Nick Davila healthy and ready to play in the Snake Pitt!!! Signed two year deal. Go Rattlers !!!

The 27-year-old Davila is coming off another stellar season in 2012 in which he threw for a career-high 5,500 yards to go along with 113 touchdown passes and only 16 interceptions.
In his three years in the league, the former Cincinnati Bearcat has thrown for 15,274 yards and 332 touchdowns — the most in the Arena Football League in that span.
The Rattlers begin defense of their title March 23 at US Airways Center when they host the defending American Conference champion Philadelphia Soul.
Arizona defeated Philadelphia in Arena Bowl XXV in New Orleans last August.
