Nighthawks Excited to Open Season

WICHITA FALLS, TX - The Wichita Falls Nighthawks are ready to hit somebody else.

They've been going through training camp since the day after the Super Bowl, and some players have been working out together even longer than that. Finally, on Monday night, they'll get a chance to face another team when they host the Texas Stealth for an exhibition game at the Kay Yeager Coliseum.

They currently have 31 players in camp, which they'll need to cut down to 25 after Monday's game. They'll have a quick turnaround following the game, too, as they travel out to Spokane, Washington for their regular-season opener Saturday night.

Click on the video player to hear from first-year Nighthawks Head Coach Billy Back, and linebacker Josh Francis, who earned a contract with the Green Bay Packers following his performance in last year's exhibition game against the Stealth!
