2014 Debuts Outcasts Pro Team

The Outcasts Pro team made their debut during the 2014 qualifier season, participating in both NARCh and State Wars events. The team, built off the core from the very successful Outcasts 92′s, continued to build steam all Spring and Summer. While in the planning stages for the 2014 NARCh finals in Estero, Florida the Outcasts joined forces with the Rebel’s Pro Team from Las Vegas Nevada, combining key members of both rosters to build one nationally competitive sqaud. With the roster of forwards and defenseman locked in, the only spot left to fill was the one between the pipes. For this job the Outcasts called on Arizona Native and Outcasts Alunmi Matt Grogan, who had just finished his NCAA season as a Senior with the UConn Huskies.

Attending the program’s first NARCh finals event, the Outcasts competed well, going 2-2 ┬áin round robin play, finishing 7th out of 17 teams. The Outcasts would draw their Mission big brothers “Next Gen” in the first round of playoffs. A closer, more exciting game was not played all tournament as the two teams traded goals and ended regulation tied 3-3. With 2 minutes off the clock into OT, Next Gen would find the back of the net to put the game away. Overall, a great showing for a young Pro squad looking to get their feet wet.
