“Getting Djordje re-signed was an absolute priority for us this offseason,” said head coach and general manager Corey Adamson. “His production on the field last year was a major factor in our team’s success, along with his intensity and work ethic in training, and his attitude off the field. This is a big step for us toward our goal of winning the NISL Championship this season,”
