Ohio Machine Announce 25-Man Roster for its 2017 Campaign

April 17, 2017
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio announced Monday that it has finalized the 25-Man Roster for the 2017 Regular Season.

The active roster includes MLL dynamos Kyle Harrison, Peter Baum, Scott Rodgers, Marcus Holman and league MVP Tom Schreiber. Returning with the core of its 2016 MLL Championship run unit, the Ohio Machine is determined to course redemption for the 2017 season.

Six unwavering newcomers fought their way to the Machine roster; Patrick Kelly, Mike Rooney, Mike Birney, Derek DeJoe, Kevin Cunningham and Pat Harbeson were commanding standouts during Ohio’s’ two training camp weekends.

The Machine returns with all of its defensive unit, Scott Rodgers, Matt McMahon, Steve Waldeck, Michael Noone, Jackson Place, Brian Karalunas and Andrew Sellers, will continue their momentum as the faceless men. Last season the group was the number two scoring defense in the league. They served as the second most productive defense in the league and held teams to only 12-penalty-goals, killing off the penalty nearly 80 percent of the time.

Rookies – Brandon Davenport, Marcus Dietz, Ryan Hunter, Devin Cruz, Chris Shevins and Mike Perrino make up Ohio’s practice squad, while Bryan Cole, Mike Messenger and Logan Schuss were placed on the MLL Inactive. John Grant Jr., Kyle Harrison and Mike Quinn will be on the Machine PUP list for the first four games.

The Sheens start their 2017 season in Atlanta, playing the first MLL game of the season, on April 22 at 7 p.m. inside Fifth Third Stadium.
