This Week in Shark History

This Week in HistoryBrush up on your New York Sharks history. Each week we will present the events that happened to the Sharks during that week in history.

October 28, 2001 - The Sharks volunteer to help feed hundreds of 9/11 rescue workers at Nino's near Ground Zero.
October 28, 2000 - In a WPFL game, the New York Sharks (1-1) lost their 2000 home opener in a defensive struggle against the New England Storm, 3-0. The winning points came on a field goal with no time left in the game. New York gave the Storm 3 attempts in the waning seconds of the game. The first 2 times, New England kicker Sarah Moon missed, but was given a new life due to Shark penalties. The third attempt was the charm.

Did You Know?

New York Sharks Dana Sparling's grandfather, Raymond T. Sparling played football at USC in the early 1930's when they won a National Championship at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. He played Split End and, to this day, still holds the school record for most yards per carry. He was also known for a particular play designed for him called the "Sparling Reverse."
