Last week, Ric Seiling announced the signing of Sarah Casorso to the Buffalo Beauts.
They agreed on a one-year, $13,500 contract.
Casorso plans to use this once in a lifetime opportunity to help grow the sport for women everywhere.
I think this league is one of the best in the world. It’s been a goal of mine to play at the highest level I can and this will give me the best opportunity to do so. I’m excited to be a part of this, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, and hopefully I’ll inspire younger girls to achieve their goals.
