Jan. 23, 2001
Glaser has signed a contract to play with the Nashville Metros Soccer Club in the A-League of the United Soccer Leagues. Glaser was a midfielder for the Tigers, appearing in all but two of the Tigers soccer matches last season. Glaser was fifth on the Memphis team in scoring and in assists, with 10 points and four assists on the season. Glaser was a four-year letterman at Memphis, and he started at least 10 matches each season. Glaser, a native of Henderson, Tenn., is the second Tiger in two years to sign with the club. Former Tiger goalkeeper Brian Covey was the goalkeeper for the club last season, when it was known as the Tennesse Rythm.
"[Metros coach]Bret Mosen has been watching Nick for a year now, and it is nice to see that his unselfish style of play has not gone unnoticed," said Tiger head coach Richie Grant. "I think that Nick will definitely fit into a specific niche on the Metros and make significant contributions to the squad."
White, a native of Germantown, Tenn., has been drafted by the Milwaukee Wave, the defending league champion of the NPSL indoor soccer league. White was four-year letterman for the Tigers who will be missed next season. White provided a spark off of the bench and finished his senior season ranked sixth in C-USA in points, with 25 and fifth in goals, with 11. White was the third leading scorer on the Memphis squad, and he finishes his Memphis career with 18 goals, 12 assists, and 48 points.
"Tommy comes highly recommended by [Saint Louis head coach] Bob Warming, and he has the tenacity and skills to succeed at this level," said Wave head coach Keith Tozer.
The Wave are in season at the moment, and athletes selected in this draft will not join the teams until next season.
