DENVER – Denver Outlaws midfielder Cameron Flint is a long way from his birthplace of Georgetown, Ontario but he’s playing like he’s right at home.
In his second year in the league, Flint has been a key piece to the first-place Outlaws’ success.

A three-time USILA All-American, Flint netted four game-winning goals, while also tallying 110 ground balls and causing 11 turnovers in his time as a Pioneer. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound midfielder finished his collegiate career ranked 10th in Denver’s all-time record books in points and sixth in goals. He was named USILA First Team All-America as a senior and Honorable Mention All-America as a sophomore and junior.
Flint with drafted by the Boston Cannons with the sixth overall pick in the 2013 Collegiate Draft. He recorded 17 points on eight goals and nine assists during his rookie season.
