The Ohio Vortex of the Professional Arena Soccer League (PASL-Pro) are proud to announce their roster for the upcoming 2010/2011 indoor season.
The return of Allen Eller highlighted a successful offseason for the Canton, OH club. Eller led the Vortex in goals (34), assists (19), games played (15), and shots (93). He would go on to earn an All-League First Team selection after establishing himself as one of the league's top attackers. The veteran forward will be counted upon to provide offense and leadership on a squad built on both experience and youth.
Several other projected starters were retained, including John Ball. Ball is one of the most decorated players to ever play in the PASL. The former Rochester Rhino midfielder has spent time with the Chicago Fire, Chicago Storm, California Cougars, Cleveland Force, and the U.S. National Futsal Team.
The Vortex also invested in several new additions, including former Scotland international Ross Cochran. Cochran spent time with the U-19 National Team in Scotland along with St. Mirren and Patrick Thistle.
The Vortex hope to build off a successful inaugural season that saw them finish 3rd in the Eastern Division with an 8-8 record. They begin play with their home opener at the Canton Civic Center on November 13, 2010 as they face the Detroit Waza.
The full professional roster for the 2010/2011 Ohio Vortex includes: forward Pete Angelokostopoulos, midfielder John Ball, forward Adam Campellone, midfielder Milko Cecez, defender Ross Cochran, defender Jared Dombrowski, goalkeeper Sasha Djuric, goalkeeper Mark Eden, forward Allen Eller, midfielder Steve Gillespie, defender Chad James, midfielder Rick King, forward Adis Kuduzovic, midfielder Lucas Martorana, midfielder Ryan McClay, defender Michael Pertz, forward Georgi Petrov, defender Louie Rolko, defender Ronnie Stoltz, and defender Nate Yates.
