The USL website is running a feature which lists out the top-25 most influential players in the history of the USL's second division. They've named our skipper as the 11th most influential player!
# 11: Nathan Salsi
A veteran of the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, Salsi joined the club in its first season in the USL Second Division in 2004 and has been a defensive leader since. He earned All-League honors in his first two campaigns with the team and helped guide the Riverhounds to the regular season title in 2004 with a record of 17-2-1. It appeared his career had come to an end when the club departed the league in 2007, but he signed back on with their return in 2008 and has been a leader the past two years, playing all 40 games. For his five-year career, the dependable back has only missed three regular season matches. He has also chipped in a bit on the offensive end with at least one goal each year for a total of seven.
