The Scouting Report

After a career as a starting goalkeeper, Jason Norsic leaves his post between the posts to take over as head coach of the Illinois Piasa for the 2012–13 season. Over a 16-game season played from November to February, Norsic and his team hope to set themselves up as contenders for the Ron Newman Cup by overpowering their opponents with a mix of high-octane offense, stingy defense, and diamond-plated shin guards.

Illinois Piasa

A creature with roots in Native American lore, the Piasa bird has survived antiquity in large part due to etchings found on limestone bluffs throughout Illinois. Under the banner of the mythical predator— most depictions lend it reptilian claws, fish-like scales, and mammalian fangs—the Illinois Piasa charge onto the field against Professional Arena Soccer League foes, stopping just short of actually eating their opponents. Founded in 1998, the PASL consists of 19 indoor-soccer squads throughout the United States; upon their league debut in the 2010–11 season, the Piasa won the Pro Frontier Division with a 9–3 record.
