Tropics sign veteran forward Tyrone Hall

by Brian Ackley

The Florida  Tropics have added another veteran forward for the 2017-18 season  signing Tyrone Hall for the team's second season in the Major Arena  Soccer League.

Hall has played for the past two years with the  MASL Tacoma Stars, and also played arena soccer for the Ontario Fury,  Harrisburg Heat and Pennsylvania Roar. The deal is pending final league  approval.

In 32 career games, he has notched eight goals. His best  season came for Tacoma in 2015-16 with five goals and four assists in  16 games.

He played college soccer for Limestone College and  Radford University, where he played winger and forward. In addition to  years of professional indoor experience, Hall has competed  internationally for Sporting Kristina in Finland during 2014, and as a  member of the USL's Charlotte Eagles in 2014 where he appeared in 14  games.

“Improving our attack was a goal in the off-season, and  Tyrone is a young veteran who will improve our scoring depth which  becomes so critical over the span of a 22-game season,” Coach Clay  Roberts said.

The Tropics will have their home opener on Nov. 18  at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, looking to improve on last year's  mark of 8-12. A full 22-game schedule will be released later this  summer. The regular season runs from November to March.
