San Antonio Bullfrogs, of the PFL, re-branded as the Austin Rattlesnakes March 15, 2019
This morning University of Texas alum Darian Stone announced that he had recently finished negotiations to purchase the San Antonio Bullfrogs, a team in the new Professional Football League. On top of this he added that he was moving the team to Austin and re-branding the team as the "Austin Rattlesnakes". We have this quote from him:
" I believe Austin is a better choice for the start of this team, and for the future of the PFL as a whole. The PFL was started as a way to bring professional-level sports to College dominated cities, and Austin is one of the prime examples of this. While the Longhorns at UT have popularity all around the city, people in Austin have always had to root for professional teams from either Houston, Dallas, or San Antonio, being in between all three. I am hoping to give them a Professional team they can root for from their very own city. " - Darian Stone, Owner of the Austin Rattlesnakes
The Rattlesnakes are placed eighth in the draft order for the PFL's first draft, and Stone is two weeks behind other owners in the league to hire coaches. The nation looks to him to see what he can do with his limited resources, and see if his dream of a great Austin team can become a reality.
