It's going to be a busy week here at Catdomealumni.com/ADvantage Catdome. After a bye week both the Boise Burn and Tri-Cities Fever are back in action this weekend. We'll get the scoop on what former Linfield All-Americans Brandon Hazenberg, Casey Allen, and George Carter are up to. (I'll tell you now that I won't talk to Carter but I'm sure he's still on the mend from a bum ankle.)
Former All-NWC Wildcat running back Thomas Ford and his Alaska Wild have their season/franchise opener at home vs the Frisco Thunder on Thursday. I'm still trying to track down T.Ford but have no idea if DSL lines have worked their way up to Alaska.
Another biggie this weekend is that the NFL Network will be broadcasting Brett Elliott and the Rhein Fire's season opener vs the Berlin Thunder (yes I noticed that's the name of T.Ford's first opponent).
Also, we hope to bring you the second installment of the “Red and Purple Interview” this week. I’m putting the wraps on trading e-mails with 2004 starting defense end, Kelley Bertrand. We’re talking about him playing on a torn ACL during his 2004 national championship season.
Don’t forget to check in on Thursday as we’ll give you another report from Spring Football where the 2007 edition of the Linfield Wildcats are getting the building blocks in place in what looks like will be a standout squad.
….I didn’t think April would have this much football going on…..
