He was also the MVP of ArenaBowl 2015 after recording nine passes for 95 yards and three touchdowns.

“Reggie Gray is a significant signing for us. He is one of the most exciting players in the AFL”, said head coach Omarr Smith. “He can be a game changer for our offense, has great work ethic and leadership skills. We have high expectations for Reggie this year and know he is up for the challenge.”
