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.

Deangelo Gibbs (8), the No. 1 rated Class of 2017 prospect, was one of two players from the class that moved from Peachtree Ridge to Grayson last week.

Peachtree Ridge football lost two top players from the Class of 2017 last week when both Deangelo Gibbs and Breon Dixon transferred to Grayson, also a Gwinnett County school. While the intra-county transfers must be disappointing for the Lions faithful, the Rams fan base is sure to be energized by the addition of two of the state’s top players.
