Wittman comes back to Spirit

September 15, 1994|By Doug Brown

Tim Wittman will return to the Spirit after missing most of last season after major knee surgery.

Wittman, 31, a former Calvert Hall star and the leading scorer in the history of the Blast, had 40 points in the first 13 games last season before he tore right knee ligaments Dec. 26 against Cleveland. He signed a contract last night for one season to begin a comeback.

"The knee's fine," Wittman said. "I can run and cut. Actually, it's stronger from all the rehab. I wouldn't attempt this if I weren't myself or if I were 38. But I'm 31 and want to play maybe three more years."

New coach Dave MacWilliams will undergo sinus surgery Monday, prompting the team to change the start of training camp to next Wednesday. Camp had been scheduled to open Monday.

At Wednesday's workout, MacWilliams will have some signed local players, such as Barry Stitz and Jason Dieter, plus a group of free agents. The rest of the players, including Wittman, are scheduled to report Sept. 26.
