Former UH QB Bryant Moniz signs with AFL’s Georgia Force

Former Hawaii quarterback Bryant Moniz was preparing for the rest of his life when he learned his football career was not ready to expire.

Moniz reached an agreement with the Georgia Force of the Arena Football League this past weekend.

He arrived in Georgia on Tuesday, and will participate in practice today. Moniz will be on the active roster for the Force’s road game against the Kansas City Command this weekend.

"It’s pretty cool," Moniz said.

Moniz, 23, said he is fully recovered from a broken ankle he suffered in November. The injury prevented him from participating in running and jumping drills at UH’s Pro Day in Carson, Calif., in March.

He did not receive any tryout offers following the National Football League draft in April.

Soon after, the Saskatchewan Roughriders relinquished his Canadian Football League rights. Former UH quarterback Colt Brennan is on the Roughriders’ roster.

Moniz will be reunited with former UH safety Richard Torres, who signed with the Force last week.
