San Antonio FC has re-signed defender-midfielder Ryan Roushandel and forward Mike Seth for the 2018 USL season, the team announced on Friday.
Roushandel finished the 2017 season with 753 total minutes played and one goal against Portland Timbers 2, clinching a home playoff match for SAFC. The 32-year-old Roushandel also serves as coach of the SAFC Pro Academy.
“Ryan is Mr. San Antonio FC,” said SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell through a team press release. “He has several different roles within the club, and towards the end of 2017, his contributions on the field were first-class. He’s a thorough professional who comes in and competes every day, and we’re excited to see him in whatever role he’s asked to do in 2018.”
Seth joined SAFC from Phoenix Rising FC during the 2017 season. He made six appearances for the club, recording four shots in 154 total minutes.
“We’re looking forward to Mike’s return,” said Powell. “He joined us late last season and contributed with his high work rate on a daily basis. We’re looking forward to having him in the preseason and getting him fully integrated into the team.”
Roushandel and Seth join Stephen McCarthy, Maxi Rodriguez, Connor Presley, Cyprian Hedrick, Greg Cochrane, goalkeepers Deigo Restrepo and Matt Cardone, Cesar Elizondo, and Ever Guzman in returning to SAFC for the 2018 season.
