Another day, another Richmond Kickers player on the move. This time it is defensive midfielder Mike Callahan, who is going to North Carolina’s Triangle to join the Carolina Railhawks on loan. There are six games left in the fall season for the Railhawks, in which Callahan can hopefully propel the Railhawks past the New York Cosmos and into the Soccer Bowl against the Atlanta Silverbacks. For those who don’t know, the NASL adopted a split schedule this year, and the Soccer Bowl pits the winner of the spring season against the winner of the fall season.
Mike Callahan is a tenacious defensive midfielder who is best at breaking up play, serving as an outlet for the rest of the players on his team, and playing the short, safe pass to keep possession. This past season with the Kickers has been his best so far, and has been the first season in which Callahan has been healthy the entire time. It is also a homecoming for him, having grown up in Cary, North Carolina. We will keep you updated on Callahan’s progress with the Railhawks.
