Wranglers to practice with Crush

February 21, 2007 - Arena Football League (1987-2008) (AFL I) - Austin Wranglers News Release

AUSTIN-The Austin Wranglers will host the Colorado Crush for two days of shared practice beginning Thursday, February 22 and concluding on Friday, February 23 with a controlled scrimmage.

These practices will be especially meaningful for Wranglers Head Coach Brian Partlow and Defensive Coordinator Lee Johnson, as both coached with the Crush for several years, including their ArenaBowl XIX Championship in 2005.

With Wranglers part-owner Deion Sanders being one of best cornerbacks in the history of the NFL, the Crush boasts one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history as their owner in former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway.

Both teams have many connections on and off the field, so these shared practices should be especially competitive and fun to watch. A complete schedule for the shared practices between the Austin Wranglers and Colorado Crush is below:
