The most recent Atlanta Steam depth chart, released by head coach Dane Robinson on Monday, reflects evaluations following the weekend minicamp. The chart, the second released for the 2016 season, has few changes from the first. While the practices did much to solidify some positions there are battles at tight end on the offensive side of the ball as well as defensive end (L), cornerback (L and R), and free safety on the defensive side.

Santia Deck is one of the rookies taking part in the Steam preseason mini-camps that has been named by head coach Dane Robinson as a potential "impact player" in the LFL.

 

The Atlanta Steam are preparing for their fourth LFL season with a series of mini-camps ahead of opening day that include an unusual number of new faces. The combination of Steam veterans retiring and the new free agent system has opened the door for newcomers to fill almost half of the 2016 active roster.

This is the first of two articles that introduces rookies that have a real opportunity to wear the black and red this season. Arryana Barton, Brianna Brown, Santia Deck, and Danielle DiCaterino are the subjects of the first of the two articles.

The Atlanta Steam was the focus of a recent article published on MMQB.SI.com that took an honest look at the Legends Football League (formerly the Lingerie Football League) and what athletes go through to play the game they love in front of thousands of fans. Steam quarterback Dakota “Gunslinger” Hughes was the player that garnered the most attention-not surprising for a QB on any team.
