How The Hurricanes Won The West
The Victoria Hurricanes are the Western conference champs of the Crossroads Amateur Football League.
Winning the West was not easy. The Hurricanes won their showdown of two undefeated teams, 8-6, over the Austin Xtreme last Saturday night at Patti Welder Stadium. Bryant Wolf threw a touchdown pass to Showtime Williams, and then those two combined on the game-winning two point conversion. Former East Titan Kendre Franklin came up with an interception with about a minute left in the game to seal the deal. I talked with two Hurricanes about their big win.. Said Wolf, “Man it feels so great. I’m speechless, at a loss for words right now. I want to give a huge shout out to our linemen, the offensive coaches. The defense played a real big factor.” Said Franklin, “We feel pretty great. It was a dogfight. Everybody laid down, gave it their all in the game right before the Super Bowl. I’m at a loss for words like Bryant. I can’t explain it.”
The Victoria Hurricanes play the Mighty Houston Ducks for the Crossroads Amateur Football League title a week from Saturday night in Katy.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) – Mike Singletary was at minicamp with the Detroit Lions, checking out their use of video screens at practice.
The Hall of Fame linebacker was hired earlier this year to coach high school football at Trinity Christian Academy in Texas. He has also been hired as coach of the Memphis franchise in the Alliance of American Football, which will start playing in February.
Singletary went 18-22 as coach of the San Francisco 49ers from 2008-10. When asked Thursday if he feels he can get another opportunity like that, he said he hopes so, but if not, he’ll keep doing what he’s doing.
