The San Antonio Commanders are ready to get their first season started, and after the turnout at their pre-"Protect-or-Pick" QB draft party it seems safe to say that Alamo City is too. The team unveiled their jersey design for the inaugural season of the Alliance of American Football, and many team players and personnel were on-hand to celebrate the arrival of the new professional football team.
Andy Everett and I were joined by a host of former professional players who are now serving as coaches and executives in this new league, as well as familiar faces in athletes that played at UTSA and are pursuing their dreams as Commanders. Check out our interviews with them below!
The San Antonio Commanders and the Alliance of American Football will start their 10-week season on February 9, 2019 - the week after the NFL season concludes. Next month, however, all eight teams will be in San Antonio for their training camps starting on January 4th, so you may see some familiar faces at local establishments. Former NFL players like Josh Johnson, Aaron Murray, Trent Richardson and Scott Tolzien are just a few looking for a chance to re-launch their careers in this new Spring league.
I'll be keeping an eye on the league headlines as we get closer to the season on The Chris Duel Show, 5pm - 7pm Monday - Friday on Ticket 760. To check out the rosters across the league, go check out their website here.
