I would use different layers on top and not blend them..you kinda blended the layer together..but you probably want the players standing out more. ..

I'd also go with a different font..but I like it..just looks a bit faded..good job though..what program did you use
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Thanks for the imput acsguitar. I used photoshop for the pics but I had a problem getting it down to an acceptable size for the forum to accept. Any tips on compressing the photo once it is finished?

I took your advice and enhanced Schill and Tek so they stand out more. Thanks again for the imput.

nice job. ;-D

I would have used a darker glow (black or dark gray) helps to better cover up any imperfections when removing a player from a dark background. I'd use the lighter color for a lighter background.

Thanks leal72 ! I appreciate the tip about the darker glow for the background. I don't have any formal training for photoshop so everything I have done was self-learned. Thanks again for the thumbs up.

That looks pretty darn good for a first sig attempt, your background seems kind of dim though but thats not too big a problem
