HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Even though they are just 1-11, the River Cities LocoMotives are still trying to get better.

Ruiz is a 5-foot-10, 205-pound runner who played for the Chicago Bruise in the recently defunct XFL.

Qwyn is a familiar face having played with the Ohio Valley Greyhounds in the National Indoor Football League. The 5-10, 175-pound Qwyn is played at the University of Chattanooga.

The 6-2, 215-pound Taylor is a former N.C. State quarterback who has had some playing time in the Arena Football 2.

River Cities plays saturday at Lake Charles, La., and has its final home game at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 14.
