The Dallas Marshals Professional Indoor Football Team has announced their 2017 season schedule. Year number two for the franchise looks to be a great one as the Marshals have signed several Dallas native free agents including Ladarrell McNeal, Desmond Roland and Anthony Webb. McNeil was a four-year starter and field general for the University of Tennessee from 2012 to 2015. Running back Desmond Roland comes to the Marshals via the Oklahoma State Cowboys where he scored a Big 12 leading 27 TD’s over his last two seasons with OSU. The Marshals other big signing was former Kansas University defensive back Anthony Webb. Anthony was the led the Champions Indoor Football League last year in interceptions and will make a great one-two punch with McNeil.
The Champions Indoor Football League has also flourished in the offseason with the addition of four teams. Bismarck, ND, Kansas City, MO, St Louis, MO and Western Michigan have signed with the league and will all call the CIF home for the 2017 season. With the additional markets the CIF has grown to 16 teams broken up into 4 divisions. The South Division will include Dallas Marshals, Texas Revolution, Central TX Calvary and the Amarillo Venom.
