Stone Sports Management, LLC (“SSM”) is pleased to announce that two of its longest tenured clients have each signed with 2015 USL expansion franchise Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC. Both are expected to feature in 2015 with the veteran striker Aaron King returning to his home state to play, while goalkeeper Samir Badr looks to build on his 2014 season with then expansion franchise OKC Energy.  

"Aaron and Samir each have a great chance to make their mark in Colorado Springs during the club's inaugural season," says SSM’s President and Players’ Agent Justin Stone. “There is no reason why each cannot have their best professional seasons with Samir having the ability to play a full season as the number one and with Aaron shouldering responsibility playing in front of friends and family to score goals and be dangerous offensively."

Although each signed in advance of the club's official announcments, Switchbacks FC announced Samir Badr's signing on February 2, 2015 and announced Aaron King's signing on February 11, 2015.  



“First, I want to thank the entire Switchbacks’ staff for bringing me in,” said King.  “Being a Colorado Native and having started my career with the Colorado Rapids and the Boulder Rapids Reserves in PDL, this opportunity is very exciting and special for me.  I am looking forward to reuniting with Tritt, Wolde and Vercollone, with expectations of making this Inaugural Season a memorable one.”



“I am really excited about joining Switchbacks FC and helping to play a real part in building something special in the city of Colorado Springs,” said Badr.

SSM would like to wish Aaron and Samir well as they acclimate to the altitude.  Click HERE for the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC schedule and stay tuned for more exciting news regarding these clients.  Make sure to follow Aaron King on Twitter: @gibron18 and Samir Badr on Twitter: @samirmbadr
