Midfield Presence and Netminders Complete Battle's
The 6'5" monster that has watched the nets of the Austrian National Team is now set to be the netminder for the Alamo City Battle Soccer Club. "He's everything you look for in a keeper. Big, agile, and smart. He's the perfect replacement for Keller and the perfect fit for Alamo City." Gspurning could very well be the keeper of the future for Alamo City. At 30 years of age he's still quite young for a keeper and already has International and European experience at the club level. He's not only been charged with filling the shoes of an American legend, but with stepping into a high profile position in the Bigtime Soccer League.
The first of Alamo City's 7th round picks brings loads of experience to the Battle midfield. "Oh, we love this guy and
can't believe he was available. Most think he'll get lost in the shuffle in LA but we don't think so at all. He's got the flash and the skill to excel here." Backing that up is Sarvas' most recent exploits with L.D. Alajuelense of Costa Rica. Wearing the 10 jersey, Sarvas led the club to the 2011 "Double" Title (they won both half championships).
The final player taken by Alamo City in the 2012 player draft is by no means a slouch. Hartman is arguably the best keeper in the history of Major League Soccer. "He's as solid as they get between the sticks. He takes charge of the backline and directs the defense. Oh, and he's a hell of a shot stopper as well. Hartman is the perfect keeper. There's a reason we chose to take him rather than another position player." Not only does this pick provide Alamo City with insurance at the keeper position but it keeps a very potent weapon out of the hands of the other BSL Clubs.
