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.

Earlier this week we learned a bit about Bayley Winkel and Andres Vega. Today we move onto more defensive-minded stars from Albany and Evansville.



Strong and steady, the First Team All-America East defender has 37 consecutive starts for Trevor Gorman in Albany.
