Home Fields Sonny Phommarine and Team America

Sonny Phommarine and Team America

Here is a picture from a walk on game we played on November 18th 2012 of Sonny Phommarine wearing his old Team America vest.  The vest picture is a little over exposed but still too awesome to not post!

Team America was a well known late 80 early 90s team whose home field was Sat Cong Village.

Most players worked/refereed at SCV or worked for Bud.  They were one of the first WGP sponsored teams with many members building those own guns at WGP while working there. 

According to Sonny, Team America members would stamp Team America on their snipers, anyone have one of these pumps?

A few Team America players Wes Wong, John Rohem, Mark Thompson and I’m sure Sonny can give us a list of many more.

Thanks Sonny!

  1. In the mid to late 90’s Team American ran three 5-man squads playing mainly in the GWS. The intermediate squad folded into the Amateur squad (Freedom) and the Novice Squad (Revolution). Most members were, as the article states, staff or players at SCV. The novice squad had Mike Paxson as one of the anchor players. I played on the Team America Revolution squad and we usually placed in the top three in our class for the two years I played with the squad. I don’t remember everyone as time has taken it’s toll but once I go dig out my pics I can name the entire squad.
