The Houston Stallions will finally have their home debut Saturday night at the Merrell Center against division rival Corpus Christi. Despite the challenge of playing their first five games on the road to begin the 2011 campaign, the Stallions have trampled the competition in route to a 5-0 start and a 2.5 game lead in the Southwest Division of the SIFL.
Fans will now get their first opportunity to see Houston’s newest football franchises and a team that many experts feel is the class of the league.
“It’s great that folks are projecting us as the team to beat but you still have to go out on the field and back it up,” says Head Coach Gerald Dockery. “This is a good team we are playing Saturday and a big test for us.”
Houston is leading the league in yards and scoring averaging 326.2 yards and 67.5 points per game. QB Robert Kent, who leads the league in passing efficiency and is third in passing yards per game, is a big reason for Houston’s success. “We can’t wait for Saturday to finally play in front of our fans and show them what Stallions football is all about”, he says.
Not only will fans see an exciting night of Indoor Football, but will also be treated to some special entertainment as well. Longtime Houston Oilers Superfan Krazy George make his return to Houston to pump fans up all game long, and the 2002 Grand Prize winner in the 30 Minutes to Fame TV competition, Christopher performs his famous Schtick on a Stick Michael Jackson Puppet show at Halftime. “Christopher is a first class entertaining act that we were lucky to secure for the opener,” says Stallions Co-Owner Joe Kramer. “Fans will get a big kick out of it.”
