Former Laker Augustus Signs with Arena Football Team

Former Grand Valley State University wide receiver Jovonne Augustus agreed to terms with the Utah Blaze of the Arena Football League.

Augustus started for GVSU in 2010, catching 28 passes for 590 yards. He led the Lakers in both touchdowns (nine) and yards per reception (21.2).

After playing two seasons at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, Calif., the WR transferred to GVSU. He was clutch for the Lakers in 2010, catching two game-winning touchdowns with less
than 30 seconds remaining.

Augustus was signed after impressing the Blaze coaching staff during the team’s open tryout in Salt Lake City this month.
