The PPL Center will have a new look in the upcoming spring season. Details below…
At the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks’ 3rd Annual Partner Appreciation Mixer hosted by Vision Bar/Sands Event Center, the Steelhawks Official Post-Game Party Spot, the team made some very exciting announcements. The biggest being the introduction of Embassy Bank as their new “Official Bank” and the naming of Embassy Bank Field inside the PPL Center as the new playing surface of the Steelhawks.
Embassy Bank Field will feature a brand new look with black turf and vegas gold endzones. Both Embassy Bank and the Steelhawks are extremely excited about the partnership and the design of the new field.
The Steelhawks’ can’t wait to kick off the first of many seasons on this awesome new field. They kick off the 2015 home schedule on Sunday, April 12th at 4pm vs. Marion Blue Racers from Marion, Ohio.
Head Coach Chris Thompson is ready for the upcoming season, “2015 marks the beginning of a new era for Steelhawks Indoor Arena Football in so many ways. We have a New Field, New Arena, and we are very thrilled of all of our off-season progress we have made. We’ve added quite a few new partners to our already outstanding list, plus this could be the most talent we have ever had coming into camp this March! Does it get any better than this?”
The team also announced the return of DB Jesse Cooper (5’8, 170, Bloomsburg University) to the Black and Vegas Gold. In just half a season with the Steelhawks in 2012, Cooper recorded seven interceptions and returned three kickoffs for touchdowns. The Bloomsburg University graduate brings veteran leadership to the Steelhawks defensive backfield and should once again electrify in the return game.
Also coming to the Valley for the 2015 season is former Harrisburg Stampede leader in All-Purpose yards WR Jerell Jones (5’8, 185, Rhode Island University). Jones caught for more than 550 yards and 12 touchdowns last season while also serving as the team’s primary kick returner.
The Steelhawks are currently planning another open tryout for February or March 2015, prior to the Steelhawks preseason camp. Final details will be released on the Steelhawks website in the coming weeks.
