Unfortunately for us, as sexy as that kit is, it’s just a fan concept and not something we’ll see. However it did get me thinking about kits, and the more I thought about it the more I kept coming back to one thing I really want to see and think would be a good look for the Hounds – dark kits.

When I say dark kits I don’t mean just straight black like they’ve had before. Black is fine and all, but it’s typically not very exciting. When I say dark kits I mean a dark scheme. Blacks, and more importantly, greys. Black and gold will always be Pittsburgh’s colors, but adding grey…



Player of the Year Results

With the season over and the final whistle sounded, it’s time to announce the results of our Player of the Year polls.

Steel Army Player of the Year – Kevin Kerr

If you were are the match on Saturday you already know this one. If you weren’t it should come as no surprise that team captain Kevin Kerr took home the trophy this year. Despite Kerr being a long time Riverhound this is the first time he’s been our Player of the Year. This season he was the anchor in the midfield with never ending grit and determination. Oh Captain my Captain! Congratulations to Kevin Kerr.

In addition to our overall Player of the Year we have individual position winners as well. We’d like to recognize the following players as our favorites in each area of the field.

Goalkeeper of the Year – Trey Mitchell…

There isn’t too much that needs to be said. The good guys most likely need to rattle off three straight wins to put themselves in the playoffs. That starts today against the Sugar Free Red Bulls and then concludes at home against Rochester and Ottawa. They’ve had degrees of success against everyone not named Louisville, so to get it all started today is a very doable first step.

Jamal Jack will be missing…
