Breeze Announce 28-Man Playoff Roster

AUDL teams are allowed to add and remove players on their roster throughout the regular season as they see fit, as long as there are only 28 officially on the roster at any given time. As with many other teams, this allowed the Breeze to practice with and rotate among more than 28 players using an extended roster. The Breeze extended roster had 35 top quality players this season. 34 of those 35 suited up for at least one game with only the injured Brad Scott never touching the turf in an official game.

Despite that regular season flexibility, teams are limited to a single fixed roster of 28 players for  the postseason. Unfortunately, this leaves seven solid contributors off of the postseason roster as the team makes their push to the AUDL Final Four. Today the Breeze are announcing their 28-man roster, which actually had to be submitted to the league prior to their 12th game of the season for various legitimate reasons. Therefore, the selections could not take into account contributions and improvements over the last three games.

The 28-man roster features 13 rookies and 15 AUDL veterans.

*: denotes AUDL rookie for 2017 season

The team is still limited to a 20-man active roster for each game, as in the regular season. For instances, if a player among these 28 is not active in the first round game, he is still eligible for future contests.

If DC keeps winning, there could be as many as four postseason games for the squad in 2017. First up will be the #3 seed Montreal Royal (9-5) traveling to Washington D.C. on August 11.
