The Erie Explosion logo was unveiled at a Press Conference at the Avalon Hotel and Conference Center on Friday December, 3rd 2010
It was an exciting day for our franchise as our new logo and name were announced yesterday. After much hard work and preparation by our ownership group and front office the Erie Explosion logo was unveiled at a press conference that was extremely well attended. The press conference was held at the “Official Hotel of the Erie Explosion” the Avalon Hotel and Conference Center in Downtown Erie. I want to thank our ownership, front office, staff, fans, Avalon Hotel and Staff, and all of the media members that covered this event. The response has been outstanding and I feel the excitement building towards the 2011 season. It has been a very busy off-season for our staff as we have been recruiting, evaluating, and signing top level talent to make a run at the 2011 SIFL Championship. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements on the players who will make up our 2011 Erie Explosion roster, as well as other events and information. I am very pleased with where our roster is at this point, and I am excited about the dynamic and talented players who will wear the Erie Explosion uniform in 2011. Our search for talent is never-ending and this week will be a hectic one as I travel Sunday to a player combine in Baltimore, attend an AFL private workout during the week, and host our open tryout at Edinboro University on Saturday December 11th. It will be a busy and fun week as we look to add the final pieces of the puzzle to bring the 2011 SIFL Championship to Erie. Stay tuned to the blog as we bring you all the latest inside information and insight as we head towards training camp in March 2011.
