Roster Updates-PSP MAO
The Ironmen have picked up Mike McCormick, who used to play with San Diego Dynasty, and SD Aftermath until recently. But Ironmen just recently lost Tok Hamil and Eric Humphries. Hamil moves over to play with San Jose Royalty, which instantly makes the new Challengers league team stronger. San Jose Royalty also has picked up Chris Catt, who had made it on the Ironmen back in 2011, but then left the sport to focus on college. The two of them could help make Royalty a contender. It’s unclear why Humphries has decided to step away, but sources close to the team say it’s to focus on his career.
Infamous was trying out Nicky “Vegas” Martin and Brandon Mayo this past weekend in their practice against Tampa Bay Damage in Florida. Vegas, a star player 5 years ago for XSV, who has been playing for the New Jersey Jesters for the past two seasons, was looking to fill the front position opening created by the loss of Zach Patient due to a torn ACL. Mayo made his name playing aggressive for Avalanche years ago, and was a featured player in the classic paintball film Cereal Killers 2.
Damage also had new players trying out: G-No Benedicto formerly of Infamous, Paul “LP” Evert, who has played with Tampa in the past, and Alex Young, who has spent time on the field for Arsenal.
