Wichita native Brent Hobson has signed for the 2016 NPSL season.
After graduating as an All-Conference selection from Friends University, Hobson spent the next four years around the professional indoor game. In 2011 he began training with the Wichita Wings who transitioned into the B2’s by 2013. During the 2013-2015 season Hobson played a key role in the team’s success.
“I’m ready for the opportunity to play for FC Wichita this season. Last year was a very exciting and successful inaugural season for the club and the city of Wichita,” said Hobson. “We have high expectations this second year but we are up for the challenge. The FC Wichita organization is growing fast. I’m proud to be a part of it and looking forward to helping the team in any way I can.”
“Brent was an assistant coach for us during the 2015 NPSL season. A knee injury that required surgery took him out of the equation as a player,” said CEO Blake Shumaker. “We couldn’t be happier to have him in uniform this season and expect his leadership to help us tremendously.”
