LA Ironmen and San Jose Royalty merge to become powerhouse PSP Champions team!

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

PRESS RELEASE:

San Jose Royalty and the Los Angeles Ironmen merge their rosters

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

San Diego, California (January 14th 2014)- San Jose Royalty and the Los Angeles Ironmen will merge their rosters for the 2014 PSP season. Royalty will cease to exist as a standalone entity and the best players on the squad will come over to the Ironmen. Members of the two teams are excited about the merger, as it will create a very strong team who will contend for the coveted PSP World Title.

 

The merger brings paintball legend Shane Pestana back into the Ironmen fold. Pestana has a storied history with the California team, first as a star player during its early years, then as captain during the late 90’s and early 2000’s, and then as the coach from 2004-2008; he guided the team to multiple World Championships during each tenure. Until this merge he had been helping Royalty as a player/coach during their assent through the divisional ranks.

 

Marcello Margott and Alex Goldman, two of the star players brought on last season for their second stint with the Ironmen, are happy to have the man back who they won their first World Titles with. Margott stated, I am ecstatic to have Shane Pestana back in the organization. He’s bringing hard working Royalty players who have great attitudes and the same work ethic as us. I think this team will quickly become a family. It’s going to take some time for the chemistry to kick in but when it does I think it will be a truly great Ironmen team. Shane is a leader by nature. He just knows how to get the best out of people so I can’t wait to start working with him again and see what we can accomplish together this time.”

 

Pestana said, “I’m ready to go, to help the Ironmen get back to where they should be, which is sitting at the top of the Champions Division. We have so many great talents on this team, so many hard working guys. Sure, it may take some time to gel, but the Ironmen will be a winning team again.”

 

Mikko Huttunen, a long time Ironmen veteran who also won titles with the team, will come on as a part of the coaching staff as well, which augments the Ironmen’s brain trust in its push back toward the podium. The Ironmen finished 5th overall during the 2013 season, and 4th at the World Cup, against one of the most competitive fields ever and this new merger proves they are dedicated to building a winning team again.

Marcello Margott Clinic at Total Combat Paintball – Photos and More!

Monday, February 18th, 2013

February 9th, 2013 marked the first official Marcello Margott Clinic at one of Southern California’s finest paintball parks, Total Combat Paintball (TCP) in Chula Vista, California.  Here’s what Marcello of the Los Angeles Ironmen had to say after the event:

“Well, its safe to say my first clinic of the year was a success. Had the chance to meet some amazing field owners that in my opinion, are exactly what this sport needs if we want to grow. Diana J Ocampo and her business partner Julio at Total Combat Paintball are true ambassadors of our sport. Their mission is to generate as much new interest in paintball as possible and I fully support them and their field. It was a pleasure working with people who truly care about the growth of paintball as a community as much as I do. I can’t wait to play there again.

The morning started with greetings and small talk while we all geared up. All the kids seemed very excited, and very happy to be there playing paintball, I always love that. It’s amazing to see all of this talent around the globe, visualizing what could one day emerge from the raw talent of some of my students.

One of the kids was 12 years old, his name was Andrew and I can’t say enough about him. He reminded me of myself when I was 12, totally submerged into the sport of paintball and its fascinating journeys during those moments on the battle field. He was fearless and always wanted to be the first to go in any of my drill exercises. Another kid was recovering from a knee surgery to have a unexpected tumor removed. His enthusiasm and dedication kept a smile on my face all day as he put in the maximum amount of effort in each and every lesson. I don’t want to leave anyone out, because all of the kids were more than awesome, but these two really stood out.

After going through a series of drills, exercises, and situational lessons I had a chance to play some points with everyone for fun to finish out the day. We all just mixed in and played games street ball style. I had a blast, it was definitely one of my more memorable clinics just due to the fact that I was surrounded by such good people. I look forward to working with TCP and playing at their field in the future.” – Marcello Margott #33
