Guest Posted January 29, 2005 Share Posted January 29, 2005 Frank Klopas Nominated for National Soccer Hall of Fame Chicago, IL (Friday, January 28, 2005) - The National Soccer Hall of Fame announced today the 2005 Ballot for election to the Hall of Fame includes Chicago Storm Head Coach and General Manager Frank Klopas. A total of 53 former players have been nominated and Klopas appears on the ballot for the second consecutive year. The announcement was made live on national television as Hall of Famer Eric Wynalda, Class of 2004, presented and discussed this list on ESPNEWS "The Hot List." The 38-year-old Klopas established himself as one of Chicago's most successful homegrown talents during a professional career that spanned 16 years. Born Fotios Klopas on September 1, 1966, Frank immigrated to America with his family from Athens, Greece as a child and would hone his playing skills in Chicago, where he starred for Mather High School on the city's Northwest side. Klopas helped lead the Rangers to its first Chicago Public League championship in 1983. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
