Keith DeVit is no longer on Vicious and joins Houston Heat

HOUSTON, TX – Tuesday, January 21, 2014 – Houston Heat adds yet another gun to its roster and signs Keith DeVit Jr. for the 2014 season.

“We’re pleased to welcome Keith to Houston Heat,” said Randy “Sarge” Smith, owner of Houston Heat. “He is fresh off a challengers World Cup win and is eager for more. I am confident that he’ll fit right in with our family as he brings a solid skill set to the table and has an outlook in line with our philosophy of one team, one family, one point at a time.”

“Houston Heat has built a great organization and I’m excited to join the family and contribute to its success any way I can,” said Keith DeVit Jr. “I’m looking forward to playing with and learning from some of the best players in the world.”

DeVit, who is from Wallingford, CT, has been playing professional paintball since 2011. He played with Omaha Vicious in 2013 and won the World Cup title in the challengers division.

“I can’t wait to hit the field using the amazing GI Sportz gear and paint, and getting back into a Raza jersey just feels like coming back home,” said DeVit. “I also can’t wait to get a Luxe in my hands and take advantage of having the best shooting gun in paintball. Look out for Houston Heat in 2014!! I do want to thank Vicious for everything they have done for me and I wish them all the best for the 2014 season.”

“The team has had its first practice together of the season and I’m feeling really good about this squad and what I believe we can accomplish together,” said Smith.

Houston Heat will compete as a team in PSP in the champions division in 2014. Stay tuned to Houston Heat’s official Facebook page and website for news and roster updates.

I wonder which team he might end up on next?

(Although, it'd be nice to see him play for the home team, 187 cRew.)

Had a feeling he'd be on Heat (from that picture actually.) Interesting move.

Heat must have seen something in him that Vicious missed.

PBA shows he played minimal points and put up very low numbers. Hope he gets some more spins on Heat, but with Heat's depth this probably won't happen. Still, at the very least he will push Heat's front players to work hard in practice so they earn their play time.

Keith only played 2 events with Vicious while they were in the Champions division (Chicago), so his stats would not accurately reflect the amount of play time he got while on Vicious. The other event was played in the Challengers division, where stats were not kept for the complete tournament.

He'll be filling pods on Heat. I remember him having a lot of bad points on vicious and few good ones.

ya he goes kinda nuts occasionally and that makes it tough to play him as a "consistent" player...which heat likes.

I think he should squad up with 187. They could use a little more athleticism and dynamism.

Increasing the gap in skill between the top pros and the lower ones. How can any professional team retain talent with the top teams picking them to shreds?

Keith's a good player but widening the gap is a bit of a stretch. I'm sure vicious will have np filling the spot he vacated, gonna be a great year regardless.

Something that the champions have that the challengers don't, funding to buy talent.

Does he qualify as "talent" yet? Will he get enough game time to even prove himself?

Depends on how he does at practice, they don't have much to go off of from last season.

Heat certainly sees potential, which can certainly be built off of to become talent and skill. And I can say that 187 Crew is certainly better than XSV.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
