Today's Wenatchee World has a feature about Seattle Pacific University graduate Mike Osborn's new dual role as head coach and general manager of the new PASL Pro Wenatchee Fire indoor soccer club.
"We'd like to have half the guys on the roster from the Greater Wenatchee Area," Osborn said. "We have professional caliber players here in the valley."
The other half of the professional team will be filled with players from the Northwest and points beyond. In fact, four players from Cameroon, Africa, contacted Osborn through the Internet to express interest in playing for the professional team.
"They found me," Osborn joked. "It appears that they're very high-caliber players. A couple tried out for DC United (of Major League Soccer)."
