LAKE CHARLES LOUISIANA (October 7, 2010) The Houston Professional Indoor Football Team of the Southern Indoor Football League introduced their team name, logo, and colors in a press conference held at the Coach’s Sports Bar and Grill. In attendance were more than sixty excited participants including media, sponsors, fans, coaches, players, and Don Elder, Jr. the Mayor of Katy.
The team name was chosen from the top five submissions from local fans. “As an organization we have some tremendous ideas for the upcoming season, but we really wanted to reach out to the fans and ask them to submit names befitting our market”, said Steve Hooks, co-owner of the Stallions.
Coach Dockery played an important role in the design of the logo reviewing sketches, color options, and even sew outs. “The final design came from Blackat Productions. It incorporated everything we were looking for including motion and strength”, said Coach “Doc”.
The Houston Stallions chose red, white, and black for passion, strength, and simplicity.
Open tryouts have been set for Saturday October 9th at Cross Point Community Church Athletic Field. Interested players should contact Coach Dockery at 832-671-3603.
