Former Dynamo teammate of Rowdies coach joins team

Tampa Bay Rowdies coach Paul Dalglish knows his newest player well.

The team announced the signing of former MLS player Erik Ustruck, a teammate of Dalglish's with the Houston Dynamo, on Tuesday. Ustruck was with the Dynamo three seasons, including 2007 when Houston won the MLS Cup.

"Erik …is a versatile player with immense pace," Dalglish said. "Erik will not only strengthen our team in several positions on the field but also off the field with his excellent character and personality."

A former college standout at Santa Clara, Ustruck, 25, also played with the Austin Aztex last season on loan from the Dynamo.
