Mayhem move toward title defense with opening of training camp

By Brad Harrison - The Telegraph

A total of 14 players who raised the SPHL President’s Cup championship trophy in April are expected on ice during the Macon Mayhem’s training camp, which opens Wednesday morning at the Macon Coliseum.

Still, there are holes to fill, some of which played major roles in bringing the city its first professional sports title since the Macon Peaches. Focus on filling those gaps will be a prime focus as 15 newcomers will also be getting a hard look in training camp sessions between now and the Oct. 20 season opener that are open to the public. The Mayhem will play an exhibition game Friday at Knoxville and Saturday at home against Fayetteville. 

It’ll all be part of a process that Mayhem head coach Kevin Kerr and assistant coach Leo Thomas will use to cut the roster to 18 in time for opening night when the 2016-2017 championship banner will be raised and championship rings will be presented. Jerseys commemorating last year’s championship will be worn during the opening weekend. 

“It’s going to be tough. This year is probably going to be a lot tougher than last year’s decisions. I feel like our training camp roster is even stronger than it was last year. There are going to be a lot of tough decisions to make,” Kerr said.
