HELP!


I need some help.  I recently added this photo to my collection.  It came from an estate sale but no information was provided.  Other than Kyle Rote, Jr. I cannot make out any of the autographs.  If anyone can help to identify them, please contact me at gorogues@gmail.com.
Thanks!

***UPDATE***

Thanks to Chuck at the International Soccer Archives the signatures have been identified as belonging to the 1979 Houston Hurricane.
Thanks Chuck!
