Some of you may know me from the Amarillo Venom's Website which I designed and currently manage. Over the last week I have taken on the task of designing all the team site's and soon to be " Lone Star Football League " Website, except West Texas who chose to keep their current site.

Site's currently live...

www.govenom.com (http://www.govenom.com)
www.cchammerheads.net (http://www.cchammerheads.net)
www.laredorattlesnakes.com (http://www.laredorattlesnakes.com)
www.rgvmagic.com (http://www.rgvmagic.com)
www.gohoustonstallions (http://www.gohoustonstallions)


I hope to bring the Abilene Ruff Riders and the Mesquite Bandits online in the next day or so along with the LSFL League Website.

Comments are welcome..
Thanks

Trey

...be patient as I start adding content to the site's...

I love the site looking forward to seeing the rest. So I guess CC is going for a new color scheme this season trey? I don't see why West Texas didn't want to get with the program but all and all probably some of the best site designs on any level of the game.

Yea they are substituting the red for a dark green...hoping to get an idea on the actual helmet and uniform combo's... right now I've got what I thought the helmet might look like on the site's.

Appreciate the comments and if you see anything or have an idea let me know... always good to have another set of eye's...

West Texas was happy with their site, would have loved to done there's as well though..

I liked the flash helmet thing you did a couple of years ago when the Venom were in the IFL where you could mouse over any league helmet icon and it would change to a plain logo and make a sound. You should do one of those for the LSFL teams.

Trey again an awesome site and love how your putting it all together. One thing I saw was that in the team listing you have Abilene Rough Riders instead of Abilene Ruff Riders. In the header Schedules is spelled Schedule's instead. Abilene Ruff Riders is also not spelled as the team does it in the Poll Question on the goLSFL homepage. I also think in the scrolling breaking news header the fading interval should be sped up a bit so the Breaking NEWS headlines don't look so run together, and it fades more smoothly. Those are the only bug I see at this point again great job.

Very nice.

I would have the video not play automatically though, instead have users click play. I just find it incredibly annoying when I go to a website and audio or video is playing automatically and I tend not to go back because of that.

Agreed on the auto-playing video-- off is better.

Noticed somewhere "announcements" was incorrectly spelled as "announcement's." The announcement isn't possessing anything, thus no aprostrophe needed. ;)

Think that was over on the lower right-hand side of the main page.

Maybe that was the "Latest Headline's" heading. Again, no apostrophe needed. IMO, a very nice looking site.

Their website looks really good! With the acception of W.Texas (but their website STILL looks good!!!!), ALL all the teams' websites are uniformed. Also, looks like Corpus Christi ditched the red in their uniforms and are going with green.

SUPER improvement, Trey!! Two thumbs up!!

As long as they have stats, I can live with website sins.

Thanks for the props everyone and I just corrected the typo on " Headlines " - sorry about that... and I set the video to play only when clicked on...

Thanks for the suggestions and let me know anything else you would like to see. Preeths if OK I'd like to encourage everyone to visit the website and go to the " message boards " and feel free to post there.

Preeths if not ok I am sorry- just delete the post and slap my wrist and I will understand.

Thanks

Hi Trey,

Great job with the sites and thanks for coming on here and taking the fans insight into consideration. I have one question, how come teams like Amarillo and Mesquite don't incorporate the name of the cities they play in into their logo's. Their brand is not that strong that they should skip including it. IMHO, it just looks bush league to have the logo say Venom instead of the full name of the team. Just my thoughts. Keep up the GREAT work.

Lew I have no clue why they didn't incorporate that into the logo. Each team has a reason for how they want to brand their product. I've gotten to know Stephanie and Toby- the owners of the Venom over the last 4-5 months and can tell you that they have been very proactive in community involvement in Amarillo and the surrounding area. Mesquite being a brand new team is busy building their brand right now in preparation for the 2012 Season.

Thanks for the props and don't hesitate to offer any suggestions on the league message boards. As you can see it is still very much a work in progress as I continue to add content to it.

Thanks
Trey

You did good on the sites. I hope you got paid in advance for Mesquite since the owner is folding the team.

Trey,

Sorry to see all the hard work you did on the Mesquite site go for naught. I hope the league is paying you and not the teams. Anyway, keep up the good work and I hope the rest of the league will be stable from here on out.
