Lone Stars Make Trade

May 19, 2004 - Intense Football League (Intense) - Lubbock GunSlingers News Release

The Lubbock Lone Stars have made their first trade in the franchise short history. Former Texas Tech cornerback John Norman has been traded to Corpus Christi for future considerations.

Norman played in only one game for the Lone Stars, but will always be in the franchises history books as the first player to officially sign with the team. Norman was moved to the practice squad for last week’s game against El Paso because of the considerable amount of talent on the team.

The Lone Stars coaching staff wanted to give the 6 foot 2 inch linebacker a chance to catch on with another team, and get some playing time. Norman has not officially accepted the trade and may opt to not play for the Hammerheads.

In other news… This week’s roster will remain the same as last week. Tommy Miller will start at quarterback for the second week in a row. Miller played exceptionally well in the first half of last weekends game completing 13 of 18 passes for 182 yards and 2 touchdowns. Robbie Jenkins, who got his first indoor snaps ever in the second half against El Paso, will back up Tommy under center.

The Lone Stars will leave the Hub City Thursday night for this weekends contest in Corpus Christi. Kickoff is set for 7:05. The game can be heard on 1340 AM with a pre-game show starting at 6:45.
