Ex-RailHawks update: Fusilier training in Charleston; Coggins and Lemons signed by Charlotte

Well, there are only four  players listed on the RailHawks roster who remain from the 2008 edition—assuming that reports of Steven Curfman's exit are accurate. 

But that doesn't mean life doesn't go on for departed players. 

Today, the USL-2 powerhouse Charlotte Eagles announced the signings of Chris Lemons and Jacob Coggins. Lemons, a midfielder, appeared in 21 games for the ’Hawks last year, while forward Coggins scored once in 10 league appearances (but only 208 minutes).

Both players are returning to a program where they achieved great success. Coggins was a two-time USL-2 MVP with the Eagles and won the league scoring title three years out of four. Last Friday, March 27, the Eagles began their preseason schedule with a 3:1 victory over the Cleveland City Stars; Coggins opened the scoring in the fifth minute.

In addition to a three-year stint with the Eagles, we notice that Chris Lemons' career peregrinations include playing in 19 games for Martin Rennie's Cleveland City Stars in 2007 before signing with the RailHawks in 2008.

And, Triangle Offense contacted Santiago Fusilier, who parted ways with the RailHawks last week. He reports that he's been training these past few days with the Charleston Battery, a team that's the new home of former RailHawks captain Frankie Sanfilippo.
