FORMER BLAST MIDFIELDER BRINGS CHAMPIONSHIP PEDIGREE TO SAN DIEGO
SAN DIEGO (Monday, October 22, 2018 – #18-18) – The 14-time champion San Diego Sockers have signed free agent midfielder Travis Pittman to a one-year contract for the 2018-19 Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) season. As per team policy, terms of the contract will not be disclosed.
The Manassas, Virginia native won a MASL championship with the Baltimore Blast in the 2016-17 season. Pittman has scored 28 goals and recorded 23 assists in his 47-game arena soccer career. He played two seasons with the Wichita B52s (2013 & 2014) and had a short stint with the Missouri Comets in 2015. He most recently played with the New York Cosmos B team of the outdoor National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), winning a title in 2015.
“Travis gives us a tougher and more physical presence in the midfield, something that we have lacked in the past,” said Sockers Director of Player Personnel Chiky Luna. “Having played for three championship teams, he knows what it takes to win a title. He brings his winning attitude, work ethic and intangibles to the club. Fans will like his style of play.”
Pittman’s outdoor resume includes being a four-year starter at West Virginia University, playing for the United Soccer League’s Richmond Kickers in 2016 and FC Wichita of the NPSL in 2017. As a youth player, he competed with the United States Youth National Teams at the U-14, U-16, and U-18 levels.
