Tampa Sports History, Interview with Mike Connell

Mike Connell, an original member of the Tampa Bay Rowdies, played with the team from 1975-1984 and became one of the most popular players in franchise history. Joining the squad as an 18-year-old from South Africa in 1975, Connell earned the nickname "Iron Mike" for participating in over 25,000 minutes of play over the course of a career spent entirely in a Tampa Bay uniform. He saw it all as a member of the Rowdies, and recently took some time to reflect on his playing days and thoughts on Tampa as a potential World Cup host city.
