A few weeks ago, I wrote about how a few of the Soul's most featured players were placed on league suspension. However, league suspension is basically an inactive list for players seeking employment elsewhere, whether that be in a different league or in a different occupational field. I assumed that most, if not all of them, should be back for the start of the season. All five of the players I mentioned are off league suspension and back on the current roster, including the AFL all-time leading rusher, fullback Derrick Ross. Of course I was right, this is the incredibly talented Dan Goggin we're talking about here.
Now, for opening night, the Soul will feature two time Arena Bowl appearing quarterback Dan Raudabaugh, all-time leading rusher Derrick Ross, stud receiver Tiger Jones (who led the league in receiving yards last seaosn), 1st team all Arena center Brennen Carvalho, and talented defensive backs Rayshaun Kizer and LaRico Stevenson. That is an incredibly gifted class of players, and that's before the inevitable couple of star players emerge from the roster this year. The Philadelphia Soul will have an absolutely stacked roster this season. Hopefully this is the year they put it all together and bring home their second Arena Bowl trophy.
