The Miami Valley Silverbacks will be back this year- playing at Hara Arena. Owner Jeff Kolaczkowski has hired Ryan Evans as GM.
They’ll be holding tryouts on Saturday, Oct. 23, at Englewood Indoor Soccer.
The team is working on their website- www.silverbacksfootball.com and more details will begin to appear over the next few weeks.
Coaching staff that is in place so far:
- Derrick Sheppard- Head Coach
- Michael Kiraly-Director of Football Operations
- Head & Line Coach-Derrick Shepperd
- Offense Coordinator & Receivers Coach-James Scott
- Line Coach-Bill Nelson
- Defensive Coordinator & Defensive Backs Coach-Reginald Jones
- Line Coach- Lorenzo Burke
More will be announced at their “We are back” press conference on Oct. 19 at 2:30 pm at Hara Arena.
Local news coverage of any minor league sports other than the Dragons has been lackluster at best. Maybe, with an increased focus on generating unique local content, this incarnation of the Silverbacks will get more coverage from mainstream media.
Remember- you heard it here first.
Are you ready for some football?
