We are aware of the sacrifices you'll be making over the next year with practices, meetings, what-have-you. We are certain, however, that you will have the time of your life, and profit from, the opportunities for learning, and the association with the other team players, staff, and other members affiliated with the Stampede. Your participation will be a source of pride and it will only get better as time progresses.

We were excited to say the least at the turnout of the talent from Indiana and Michigan. We really do appreciate the time and commitment that all of you have made, including those who did not make the team. It wasn't the easiest task to try and determine who makes the team, but we had several talented candidates to choose from. For those of you who did not make the team, we can only encourage you to try out again next year and give you that time to prepare. Regardless of the decisions made, we hope those who did not make the cut will still "come on out" and help us cheer on the Stampede.

It's an exciting time for us now and we're looking forward to a great season. We finally can get started in the direction we've been aiming for, and get this team where it belongs.

If you have any questions/concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us either by email: or call (574) 289.8339.

Our next task is to sit down with the Federal Football League and complete our season schedule. Once the schedule has been finalized, it will be posted on the website:

Again, thank you for your commitment and we look forward to working together.

Go Stampede!
