Two more join the bus

With barely more than two weeks until NexGen’s first game in San Francisco it’s only appropriate that we have a complete full roster.

When we announced the 2013 roster in early May with an empty 15th spot, we too wondered if it was the right decision. Would we be hampering the team by not securing a good player early or would we find the right player to complement the roster in Madison?

It was worth the wait as we’ve added a talent we might not otherwise have selected in UC Davis’s Eli Kerns. We knew Kerns had potential and watching him lead Davis (10 goals, 22 assists) to a surprise quarterfinal appearance at the 2013 College Championships confirmed that he would be a good fit for the roster.

Kerns’ resume includes a USAU Club Championship, a 2010 U20 World Championship and a 2013 U23 selection. He plays club with the Bay Area’s Polar Bears.

The University of Colorado’s Tim Morrissy will be replacing Carleton’s Nick Stuart who has been mostly sidelined since the North Central regional tournament with a nagging hamstring injury.

Morrissy plays club ultimate with Denver’s Johnny Bravo and was teammates with Kerns on the 2010 U20 national team. He will be representing the US in Toronto this summer as a member of the 2013 U23 open team.
