Harrisburg Stampede’s Head Coach, Bernie Nowotarski announced today that the Stampede has signed its first player for the 2013 Season. The Stampede has signed Veteran Kicker Erik “The Rouge” Rockhold for the 2013 Season.
As stated the Stampede has already started to re-load for the 2013 season. The first signing of the 2013 Stampede is a huge one, by signing one of the most prolific, steady and consistent Kickers that has played the Indoor game. Erik has spent the last 7 seasons with the now dark Reading Express. Four and half of those seasons were spent with Stampede Head Coach Nowotarski who was the Head Coach and GM with Reading until his mid-season release after winning the AIF 2009 National Championship. So the 2013 season will be a re-union of player and coach.
Rockhold had a stellar college career kicking for National Power Appalachian State. His Indoor career started with Evansville for 1 season and then the last seven with Reading. Erik accomplished a Kickers milestone this season in his final game of the season with Reading by surpassing the 1000 point mark. Rock will be a big boost to our special teams. He is the consummate Team and Community player and will fit right in with the Stampede LaFamila way of doing things.
Just a Reminder: As we have League and Schedule information along with Ticket information we will be sure to release it as quickly as we get it. There are several Stampede Meet and Greet events scheduled for the Summer…Check out our web site for details
