Axemen in the news once again

minorleagueJust a couple of weeks after signing the contract with Chris Kokalis to serve as assistant coach, the Axemen are in the spotlight once again for good reasons. Read more about Kokalis joining the Axemen here  They have strengthen their team with the acquisition of Kyle Padron, Montez Robinson and DeMario Pippen, with all three expected to play for at least one year for the team.

Kyle is a talented quarterback who came from Keller Texas and enjoyed an impressive rookie career at the SMU. Head coach Robert Fuller is particularly excited about this acquisition, which comes as no surprise given the fact that the quarterback completed over 8000 yards and had almost 60 touchdowns while in college and he earned several distinctions while playing for the SMU, including the honorable mention All-Conference USA honors.

His contribution to the cause is expected to be significant and his experience with the Oakland Raiders should also come in handy. The head coach sees leading abilities in Kyle and expect him to bring players together and help the team perform overall, while setting personal records for the Axemen. Although he will be in the center of attention mostly, Robinson’s presence is unlikely to go unnoticed.

Montez did a fine job while playing at the University of Georgia and he had some good results for a short period of time while playing for the San Angelo Bandits. The massive defensive lineman is surprisingly fast and agile for his stature and is exactly what the Axemen were looking for to fill the position. Last but definitely not least, Pippen is a player that the head coach expects to excel in scoring as well as throwing precise passes, something that he already done for Tuskegee University.

He played for a brief period of time for the Denver Broncos and although he didn’t last too much in Colorado, he didn’t disappoint his team either. In minor-league football, the acquisition of players that had even the slightest experience at top level is a bonus that teams fully appreciate. The Axemen are certainly not the main favorite to lift the trophy at the end of the regular season, but with these acquisitions they have all the reasons to be optimistic about making the playoffs.
