May is Linfield Legends Month

Over the next four weeks we’ll be highlighting four former Linfield standouts. These are my favorite projects to work on. These are Linfield Wildcats that have left a lasting legacy at Linfield. Here is the line-up for the next four months:

May 7th: Justin Taylor, Linebacker (1994-1998)
May 14th: Alex Rix, Cornerback (1996, 1998-2000)
May 21st: Kent Wagner, WR (1990-1994)
May 28th: Ray Lions, Safety (2000-2003)

The nomination and selection committee in what constitutes a “legend” is one person, me. However, I don’t think any Linfield fan would disagree with the above four players or the players highlight before (Carl Haberberger, Gary McGarvie). I hope to have former teammates of each legend chime in and talk about each one of these outstanding former ‘Cats.

I know there might be a few older Wildcats wondering about guys from the 80’s, 70’s and earlier but honestly I just don’t have the footage to pull from right now. In fact, the videos of these players and 95% of the video content on wouldn’t be possible without Dan Kielty or Mike Rhodes. These two are the reason why we have the great highlights we watch week in and week out on the mothership.

So strap in and get ready to revisit some of the great ‘Cats of the past. Also, do you know what a jailbreak is?
