The New Mexico Stars played their second game
in the Rio Rancho Star Center today and if you haven't been to an
Indoor football game you are missing
out. The action is different than the 100-yard variety as it is
much faster and
really more violent. The connection for us here at The Red Menace
is a host of
former Lobo football players on the Stars roster OL Ivan Hernandez, WR Roland Bruno, DL Wesley Beck, LB Tray Hardaway, RB DonTrell Moore, and
Red Menace Fan
Appreciation Award Winner DeAndre Wright.
And while most
people's eyes were on #81 of the Allen
Wranglers, those of us part of The Red Menace had our eye on our
as he drew the challenge of covering Owens. After the game we
caught up DeAndre
to talk about the game.
Many people including myself thought Owens might mail it in during the game, but to his credit Owens played the entire game and took his fair share of hits. Owens played all four quarters and DeAndre Wright was right there with him.
I don't care how great of a DB you are, a
wide receiver will
score on you and in the 2nd half that is exactly what
Owens did as
he hauled in a one handed score. DeAndre gave him a little bit of
bodying #81 into the wall and Owens took exception as he gave
D-Wright a little
shove eliciting the boos and hisses of the sellout crowd. "I just
wanted to let
him know I was here," said Wright about the incident.
After that Owens touchdown Terrell had a very quiet night hauling 4 other passes for 25 yards, and it wasn't for lack of trying as Wrangler QB Bryan Randall went to Owens quite a few times but Wright was up to the task including a spectacular broken up pass in the 4th quarter as Randall went with the same play Owens scored with earlier. However, Wright was in great position, took Owens to the wall and knocked it out of his hands for he incomplete. Wright said, "(Owens) Tough task he had one little catch on me that was it."
The next Stars home game will be Friday
in the Star Center in Rio Rancho, make plans now as it is a good
some fun football being played! We are still trying to get a Red
Menace type section started with the Stars if you are interested
let us know.
