Phoenix Rising FC has re-signed defender Brock Granger for the 2017 USL season. The contract is pending league and federation approval.
“I think he’s a versatile player that gives everything he’s got on every play,” Phoenix Rising FC Head Coach Frank Yallop said. “Brock is one of those professionals who doesn’t worry about if he’s starting a game or not playing in the game. He’ll give you the same effort and same commitment whatever his role and that’s fantastic. He’s a good person to be around.”
Granger is a USL veteran who has played in the league since 2013. Last season, Granger appeared in 23 matches and played 1,489 minutes for Arizona United SC and notched an assist. Granger had the eight-most minutes played on the team and third-most among defenders.
Granger is nearing 100 games during his USL career heading into 2017. He has appeared in 94 total league matches.
