This season we have signed four outstanding goalkeepers to anchor our defense. Chris Banfi – Spring Arbor University, Josh Hangi – Akron University, Russell Shealy – Syracuse University, and Brant Zulauf – Mercer University.
“Russell, Brant, Josh & Chris will provide excellent options for our GK position this upcoming season. They all possess unique skill sets and have played games at the highest of levels. What I’m most excited about is seeing their application, and intensity in every session. I know they will benefit from the environment, and push each other everyday. A great foundation to build upon.” – Head Coach Ricky Davey
