Bombers take advantage of bye week

ABILENE, Texas -

The Abilene Bombers could not have wished for a better start to their 2013 LSFL season. They followed a successful training camp and pre-season exhibition game with one of the most exciting LSFL games in recent memory.

The squad is now in a well deserved bye week and the 18 man squad is getting used to life in the Big Country.

Most of the Abilene Bombers players this go around hail from some of our nation's largest cities. From Philadelphia to Dallas to Atlanta, these transplants have a lot to get used to. Byron Ingram told KTXS, it has been an interesting week.

"I've come all the way from Atlanta," the QB explained, "there isn't as much to do here but that allows us to focus more on football."

The focus the team has had on their craft has shined through on the football field. Last week's comeback win against the Loredo Rattlesnakes was a game to remember. Down 47-35 at the half, Bombers coach Joe Brannen tried every trick in the book -- to good effect.

"We are told that when you have your opponent down you have to step on their throat,"wide receiver Juan Reese told KTXS, "they had us down but they didn't finish us."

Reese's three touchdowns helped prove the difference last week but the work does not stop. With film study, one-on-one and team practices, Abilene's LSFL crew hopes to keep things going. They have a tough test coming up against season's champs, the Amarillo Venom and will need all the extra reps and film study they can get.
