Michael Ambersley Bio
No stranger to sequels in eight years as a professional, former Indiana Hoosiers standout Mike Ambersley arrived back in Indiana officially on Jan. 22, 2014, to write yet another chapter in his Hoosier State saga, having previously made homecomings in both Rochester and his native St. Louis. Initially selected by FC Dallas in the MLS SuperDraft, he has split the time since his 2005 graduation among multiple second division clubs, from the Rochester Raging Rhinos and AC St. Louis to current NASL outfits Tampa Bay Rowdies and Minnesota United FC. While his residence has varied his recent form has not, as the striker has scored 30 goals 21 in the NASL since the start of the 2010 season and added 17 assists in NASL regular season play over the last three years.
Ambersley lands at Indy Eleven with glimmering memories to recollect from his stint as a Hoosier. Despite missing out on Indiana’s title-winning season in 2003 due to a back injury, as well as having to adjust to the departure of longtime head coach Jerry Yeagley following the same year, he still earned the Co-Big Ten Freshman of the Year honor in 2001, made two College Cup appearances, and converted the decisive penalty in the 2004 NCAA men’s soccer final to ensure IU would retain the championship, the program’s seventh.
Where The Funds Go
Us Against Cancer is committed to raising funds to support cancer research and is in the process of selecting a local fund to direct the donations.
