FLINT, MI – On Tuesday, November 24th the Waza Flo signed Joey Tinnion to their squad for the current MASL season. Before joining the Flo, Tinnion played soccer at the collegiate level for the Oakland University Golden Grizzlies. The 22-year-old tallied seventeen goals during his four years with the OU team, including a team high four in his senior season. The Macomb, MI native was a staple on the Golden Grizzles team as he started 16 of his team’s 20 games last season. The forward added an assist to his point total last season to bring his career assists to nine and his overall point total to 43.
Waza Flo owner Dominic Scicluna on the signing, “We’re really happy Joey could join our team at this point in our season. He’ll obviously have to get more familiar with the indoor game, but we hope he can make his debut soon, possibly as early as this weekend.”
The Tinnion name is no stranger to soccer in Michigan and that carries some extra significance with Scicluna, “Joey’s father and my Uncle Paul were business partners owning the Total Soccer complexes in Southeast Michigan. They were also instrumental in growing the sport as they owned the Detroit Rockers.”
The Waza Flo’s next game vs Milwaukee Wave is this Saturday, November 28th. Kickoff is 7:05pm at the Dort Federal Event Center in Flint. Tickets can be bought at www.WazaFlo.com.
