The Boston 13s are delighted to announce the signing of Lebanese international Mike Elias for the 2015 season.
The utility forward brings with him a wealth of experience from the competition in Lebanon where he represented The University of Balamand for 4 years as well as The Cedars national team.
13s coach Robin Peers commented “RLIF development officer for the MENA region Remond Safi first put Mike on our radar back in 2012 but we couldn’t secure the correct international clearance for him due to his national team commitments. We are delighted though to now welcome Mike to the 13s and can’t wait to see him in action. Mike flew into Boston Logan a couple of weeks ago and is excited for the season to get started.”
Elias had this to say about the upcoming USARL season “I am looking forward to playing with some of the elite players that the 13s have on their roster and I hope to help them win their first USARL championship.”
