    So any player news? I know they have lost a couple players from last year to other teams. Any news on new players? An possible diamonds in the rough coming out of the local colleges?

    A player Hounds should look at is F Travis Wall. Was a Crew youth player and many thought would get a Homegrown contract. Just won national championchip with DIII Ohio Weslyan. Highly decorated player who grew in Columbus. Scored some goals to help Crew Academy teams win national championchips. Trained with Crew for a few weeks before they left for Florida a few weeks ago but reports say he went to USL combine looking for an opportunity.

    Yes. He's been training non-stop. Recently he was in back in Japan. Should be back for preseason.

    Has the schedule been put out yet? Wish you could come out to Fullerton against the Blues, but I don't think that's happening again. I'll have to come visit Allison Park and swing by the new stadium, if that's still on schedule.

    I don't think they are expecting to play many games at the new stadium IIRC

    and your right pittsburgh doesn't travel to LA this year.

    What will the new stadium be used for, then? I thought the Hounds were primary tenants.

    Thanks for that link. Actually found another one pertaining to just our schedule, too. The USL Pro site is kinda goofy to me, sometimes.

    Somehow I missed the fact that Yeisley had signed a long-term contract with Richmond and not Pittsburgh. That's a huge loss for the Riverhounds in my opinion, he always played with lots of heart and seemed to carry the team.

    Thread resurrection: Any news on players for 2013? I read owner/player Kutney saying that players who turned them down before are not doing now so because of the PR from the stadium launch. I wondered who turned them down and who was coming. Any ideas?

    If you visit steelarmy.com we've been posting player news as we hear it. The big recent signings have been Jhonny Arteaga, Ryan Kinne, and Mike Seamon.

    All very good signings for Hounds. Usually I'm a Pitt hater, being from the other side of the state, but I am really impressed by the stadium and what they are doing.

    Here's a link to their 2013 roster. Here's one new addition that I think will help. I remember him doing well with the Rhinos a couple seasons ago. Can't remember the players name, but they previously had a defender that was a fellow Butler resident. Doesn't look like he returned.

    The Hounds are training down in Houston and have a couple trialists with them:

    Miro Cabrilo- Forward from Robert Morris University.
    Brian Fekete- Defender who played for Orlando last year.
    Joey Dillon- Midfielder / Defender from Georgetown University.

    Idk if Joey is he correct Dillon. Joey was drafted by RSL in the Super Draft last month so it'd be a bit weird if he was a trialist for the Hounds already. But all I had to go on was the last name and he's the only guy I could find via Google.
