SAN JOSE, Calif. - The SaberCats announced today that they have been assigned Danville native and former Nevada Wolfpack wide receiver Corbin Louks on a one-year contract.
“Corbin is someone we think will be able to come in right away and compete during camp,” said Owner/Head Coach Darren Arbet. “He’s a fantastic athlete and we look forward to seeing him out on the practice field.”
Louks (6-0, 200, Nevada) most recently spent time on the practice squad of the National Football League’s Seattle Seahawks. He played for two seasons at Nevada, appearing in 21 games, both as a safety during his junior season and as a wide receiver during his final collegiate season. As a senior for the Wolfpack, Louks caught 26 passes for 303 yards and one touchdown. He transferred from the University of Utah, where he appeared in 19 games as a running back, posting 385 yards and four touchdowns for the Utes. He also completed nine passes for 145 yards and two more scores.
The Danville native attended San Ramon Valley High School and earned multiple honors for the Wolves as a quarterback. He was named First Team All-East Bay Athletic League, San Francisco Chronicle’s Regional Player of the Year and North Coast Section Offensive Player of the Year, amongst other notable accomplishments. Louks was also the team’s captain and most valuable player, throwing for 2,489 yards and 28 touchdowns.
