“Thank you to Carl Delmont for welcoming me to his Harrisburg Heat team as President and Minority Owner.  I look forward to growing the Harrisburg Heat brand.  Under the leadership of our commissioner, Josh Schaub, the Major Arena Soccer League continues to get stronger.  Strengthening the Harrisburg franchise will enhance that process.”
