He was announced to the crowd as a member of the roster at Monday’s Season Kick Off Luncheon but today the Fire officially announced the signing of 3rd round draft selection (51st overall) Davis Paul. The University of California product showed well during the preseason while playing with the starting eleven as a midfielder despite playing mostly as a forward in college.
“We’ve been pleased with Davis’ skill, effort, and attitude on and off the field,” said Fire Technical Director Frank Klopas. “Davis is a creative player and a strong competitor with the ability to play up top and on the wing. We are excited about his future with the club.”
The current roster technically stands at 26. The announcement of players 27 and 28 should follow shortly although the identity of the final two isn’t much of a mystery.
I’ll be back later with some notes on yesterday’s training session.
