Tampa Pro 2011 Qualifiers Skater List

Posted on Friday, March 11, 2011 by Rob

By Rob Meronek

Top 30 advance to Semi-Finals to join former winners of Tampa Pro that are here. So far that's Dennis Busenitz, Tony Trujillo, Greg Lutzka, Eric Koston. If I didn't update your headshot, it's probably because your old one was looking better than your new one, ha. Thanks to all 80 or so pros who showed up. There's 91 in this list. I don't think 100% of you are pro, but that's just my personal opinion, and everyone is entitled to my opinion.
