Know Your Blitzers: Austin Dilts and Kendell McFayden

[ ON SALE: 2016 season ticket packages ]

We’re less than two months away from the opening kick of FC Buffalo’s 2016 National Premier Soccer League season, which means you need to know a bit more about your 2016 Wolves.

We’ve still got plenty of player commitments to announce in the coming days and weeks, but we’ve posed some question to our first batch of commits in order to get to know them a bit better.

Last week we learned a bit about Bayley Winkel and Andres Vega, as well as Keith Traut and Ian McGrath. This week we’ve met Kieran Toland and Andrew Crawford, then Isaiah Barrett and Ross Suitor before connecting with goalkeepers Nick Jeffs and Steve Casey, and Grand Island residents Troy Brady and Frank Cotroneo.

Today, we kick off another week short-and-sweet with St. Lawrence man Austin Dilts and longtime Blitzers player Kendell McFayden.
