Hey guys... I've been getting quite a few emails asking about Dallas Elite. The most common thing that I'm asked is people wanting to know who is Dallas Elite because they've never heard of the team name before. Well Dallas Elite is composed of players or ex-players from San Diego Legacy and Detroit Strange... we also have a couple of guys on our roster that strictly play NPPL's for the team. Here's the breakdown of our roster and their last team or existing NXL team they play for.
Gerald Garcia - San Diego Legacy
Richard Garcia - Detroit Strange
"Lil" John Marques - San Diego Legacy
Sean Adams - San Diego Legacy
Paul Alders - Detroit Strange
John Brinkman - Offensive
Shon "Shorty" Saucedo - Detroit Strange
Evan McDougle - San Diego Legacy
Tim Peters - Tx Storm
Gerald Garcia, Lil John Marques, Sean Adams and I (Richard Garcia) played for Oakland Assassins under Bob Long a few years ago... before LJ and Sean went to Legacy and Gerald and I went to Philly Americans. I'm excited to be able to play with my old team mates again.
Now just because most of us play in the NXL, this doesn't mean that we don't take the NPPL 7man format seriously. We balance our practices and work hard on both formats... we designate a few weekends in between events for 7man practices on our own NPPL field.
We are looking forward to our first year as a team... and let alone our first year as a team playing in the pro division. I hope that you give us your continued support... we really appreciate it. If you have any other questions regarding the team roster, please feel free to ask. See you guys in Tampa!
