Alamo City Names Giovani Dos Santos as 2017 Designated Player

14 Goals
12 Assists

The numbers speak for themselves.  Giovani Dos Santos is one of the very best players in the Bigtime Soccer League and MLS.  He's also staying in the Alamo City to BATTLE ON.  The club originally had plans to leave all player rights up for negotiation but things quickly changed as the front office started diving into draft preparation.  There's simply nobody at the caliber of GDS that will be available with Alamo City's first pick and by the time the second pick rolls around his type of production will be off the board.  GDS joins Retention Player Jack Harrison on the 2017 Battle roster.

2017 Off Season Prep

The off-season began for Alamo City much earlier than the club would have liked.  The early time off was productive though as the club wasted none of it in announcing JACK HARRISON as the club's RETENTION PLAYER for 2017.

Just as the season didn't go as planned, the off-season has already been rather harsh for Alamo City.  The club (as do all BSL clubs) retain their 2016 roster up until the FEB 22 DP/RP deadline.  With the RP slot used on Harrison, the Battle will look to find two players to slap the DP tag on.  The club's bad luck though has already limited their options.  Below is the final 2016 roster with current the current status of the player annoted:  Already there are three players unavailable for the 2017 season and it's only January 1st.

So what will the club do?  Alamo City is OPEN TO ALL TRADE OFFERS/NEGOTIATIONS going into the new season.
