Blue Signal recently received some exciting news out of Central Illinois.
This year, Blue Signal sponsored Ammunition FC, a U14 boy’s soccer team located in Owner Matt Walsh’s hometown of St. Joseph, Illinois. The team recently swept the competition and won the Fall Classic Championship!
The entire Blue Signal team celebrated the victory, as St. Joseph, Illinois has bred quite a few of Blue Signal’s star employees, including Ryan Walsh, Executive Recruiting Manager; Jordan Lawhead, Managing Partner; and John Ross Wilsey, Executive Recruiter.
This is Blue Signal’s first team sponsor (they even have our logo on their jerseys!). The team is also sponsored by several other amazing companies representing the heart of Central Illinois, including El Toro, Lockhart Angus, AGTech Advantage, Do it Best, and Anthem Chevrolet Buick. We look forward to seeing these talented young athletes continue to blaze a trail in the future.
Ammunition FC is led by Coach Markus Lockhart and Assistant Coach Dave Barney. The team was formed in 2017 with the specific intent of building a competitive youth soccer team in the Champaign and Vermilion County area. Since then, they’ve gone on to win four tournaments and placed second in another. The team recently swept the competition and won the 2019 Illinois Fire Fall Classic and just recently won the 2019 Indy Premier Halloween Classic on the heels of their Fall Classic win. Overall, they finished second in the league in 2018 and third in 2019.
Ammunition FC’s Mission:
FC strives to field athletes that will be known for exceptional sportsmanship and discipline. Their goals are to develop young athletes capable of playing at a higher level. They believe hard work, proper technique, and a strong desire to play the game of soccer will ultimately result in success on the field. Developing athletes with key core values provides the best opportunity to succeed at the next level.
