The Missouri Comets continue to upgrade their roster by signing defender Jeff Davis, who was part of the Kansas City Attack’s National Professional Soccer League championship run in 1997.

Davis played his college soccer at St. Louis University and was twice named first team all-conference while the Billikens were members of Conference USA.

Drafted by the St. Louis Ambush of the NPSL right out of SLU in 1993, Davis played for the team through the 1996 season. The following year, Davis moved across the state to play for the Kansas City Attack.

From 1996-200, Davis scored 241 points in 153 games with the team, and in 2000, Davis was named to the All-NPSL second team. Davis played for the Attack/Comets from 1996-2004, then returned to St. Louis to play for the St. Louis Steamers for the 2004-2005 season.

“Signing Jeff really shores us up on the defensive side,” Comets coach, Kim Roentved said. “His experience and leadership will also be invaluable to the younger guys on the team.”

The Comets are 1-2 after splitting home and away games last weekend against fellow expansion team, Omaha.
