SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah Blaze announce the re-signing of wide receiver AARON BOONE (6-2, 212, Kentucky). The Snow College (Ephraim, UT) and Millard High School (Fillmore, UT) alum agreed to a two-year contract today. Terms of the contract were not disclosed due to team policy.
Boone played for the Blaze in 2007 but was sidelined for part of the season due to an ankle injury. He played in seven games where he recorded 32 receptions for 420 yards and eight touchdowns.
"It was a frustrating season for Aaron," said Blaze head coach and general manager DANNY WHITE of Boone's injury. "When he took the field last year, not being quite 100% healthy, he still made big plays. We are excited to have him back and eager see him make more big plays for us in the years to come."
Prior to signing with the Blaze, Boone participated in consecutive World Bowls with the Berlin Thunder of NFL Europe during 2004 and 2005. While playing for the AFL's Kansas City Brigade in 2006, Boone was named to the All-Rookie Team and set a team record of five touchdowns per game twice during the season. Boone was also named Rookie of the Month in April.
In 2005, while playing in the NFL Europe, Boone led the league in receptions (43) and total tackles on special teams (13.5). In 2004, he again received numerous honors including a league-leading Touchdown-to-Catch Ratio - one touchdown to every 3.25 catches.
