Sting invite local players to camp

SAGINAW – The Saginaw Sting are gearing up for another championship run in 2014. To do that, the Sting will once again look to rely on local talent as they finalize their roster for the season. The Sting participated in the CIFL Michigan Regional Combine recently at the Perani Arena in Flint, and identified 11 local players to invite to training which will begin at the Midland Civic Arena on Jan. 20.

Each player was physically tested in a number of drills put on by the Saginaw Sting staff, showcasing their skills in front of head coach Fred Townsend. These 11 players will join the 13 invited from the Sting tryout that took place back in November at the Midland Civic Arena.

Highlighting the list of attendees are University of Michigan’s Al Backey, and Murray State basketball standout (and former Arthur Hill graduate) LaTreze Mushatt. Another potential standout this upcoming season is former Northwood University star Justin Barnes. Barnes recently was named the Defensive MVP of the Michigan vs. Ohio Senior Bowl.

Additionally, the following players have also been invited to camp:

Anthony Bradley (Eastern Michigan University), Mike LeGrow (Albion), D.J Marchiando (Columbus, Ind.), Reginald Overton (University of Mount Union), DiMarco Scarber (Los Angeles Valley College), Michael Martin, James King, Smarck Berden and Justonne Enoch (Saginaw Valley State University), Mychael King (Central Michigan University), Alahn Pedawi (Michigan State University), DeJon Creeks (Upper Iowa), James Harris (U of WSP), DJ Radich (Central Connecticut),

Additional local players from the Great Lakes Bay Region include: Jeremy Gordon, Calvin Boyd, Demetrice King, Zachary Mansfield, DeVonte McDole, Anthony Sewell and Taylor Stockton.

The Sting’s home opener is on Feb. 16 at The Dow Event Center with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. Single game tickets will go on sale Jan. 1 and start at only $10. Season tickets are on sale now and are available at The Dow Box Office or by calling (989) 759- 1330.
