The CENTEX CAVALRY Professional Indoor Football team would like to announce one of our local players, Eric Allen, has been signed by Saskatchewan Rough Riders of the Canadian Football League.
Eric Allen played for UMHB with great performances as a defensive back but not enough to catch the eyes of the big league teams. Eric came to the Centex Cavalry as a walkup. Eric had a tough start but settled in to be one of our most dedicated players and worked hard to get this opportunity.
Randy Sanders (Owner Centex Cavalry) stated: “ This is what the CIF is all about, it is our job to give these players and coaches the opportunity to show their talent and move up to the higher leagues.”
Coach Perez stated: “ It will be hard to backfill Eric at this time of the season but we are excited and support his moving up to the CFL.” The CFL will be starting their season next month and overlap with the NFL season.
The CENTEX CAVALRY organization wishes Eric the best and look forward to him having a long successful professional career.
