Las Vegas Outlaws Kicker News

May 14, 2015 - assigned kicker Ernesto Lacayo

March 26, 2015 - kicker Ali Mourtada signed
"One of eight finalists vying for a training camp contract in an open kicking contest put on by the Las Vegas Outlaws of the Arena Football League, Mourtada was the last kicker standing at the end of a kick-off after sinking seven consecutive field goals, each five yards deeper than the last. The 24-year-old Mourtada's dead-center 50-yard make - through field goal posts less than half the width of NFL uprights (nine feet compared to 18 feet, 6 inches) - earned him a contract with the Outlaws through the remainder of the team's training camp.... The clock, however, is ticking quickly for Mourtada, who has until the end of the week to sufficiently impress the coaching staff in a battle against incumbent starter Ross Gornall, a two-year AFL veteran." - Foxboro Reporter
