Soul return with 1st day of training camp

The 2011 Philadelphia Soul stepped onto the playing field Saturday at the NovaCare Complex in south Philly for the first time since winning ArenaBowl XXII in New Orleans back in July of 2008.

Thirty-one players with one returnee, DB/WR Mike Brown, have been invited to training camp under new head coach Mike Hohensee, a former University of Minnesota quarterback, and the only person to be involved with the AFL, as a player or a coach for all 24 years of the league's history.

In fact, Hohensee threw the first touchdown pass in AFL lore back on June 19, 1987, against Washington – a 42-yard pass to wide receiver Russell Hairston -- ans also participated in the first ArenaBowl.
