CEO/President Yan Skwara, commented, "We are very excited to re-sign Grant Essig to a one-year contract as Grant is a very solid goalkeeper who knows how to dominate the box. Grant has very good size at 6'2 and also has cat like reactions and knows how to keep the ball out of the net. Grant was part of last year's squad but never tended net due to electing to take a leave of absence from the team for personal reasons. I think he know knows what opportunity he is being given and he will take advantage of matters this time round. I know that with a solid defense in front of Grant and with his goalkeeping capabilities, we can have a stout goals against ratio versus what we did last year."
San Diego Boca FC Goalkeeper Grant Essig commented, "I am excited to be given the opportunity to tend goal for Boca as it's a big responsibly that I will gladly take on first hand no pun intended. I think we have signed some real solid players for the upcoming season and this could be a year that we could go far. I look forward to training camp and getting my hands dirty to kick off the season."
Head Coach Dr. Karim Ben Mazouk commented, "Grant has a lot to prove but at the same time I know that he has the skills required to be a top goalkeeper. I am very excited we have Grant in the mix and look for a big year from him in goal."
