Quotes from Outlaws General Manager Brian Reese:
On Bill McGlone:
"Bill is a tremendous athlete and is a proven goal scorer in the MLL. He will provide us another left-handed scoring threat from the midfield as well as a guy that can play on both ends of the field."
On Jarrett Park:
"Jarrett is one of the fastest players in the league. He could really contribute on the defensive end and starting our transition. He is tough on ground balls and can help us earn some more possessions."
