Don’t be sad NFL fans, football is here to stay. The Alliance of American Football will kick off their inaugural season this weekend with games on Saturday and Sunday. San Antonio’s very own football team, the Commanders, makes their debut Saturday as they face off the San Diego Fleet. Led by Head Coach Mike Riley, the Commanders are excited to bring football to the city of San Antonio.
The league recently announced their broadcasting partners. Games will be shown on CBS, CBS Sports Network, the NFL Network, and Bleacher Report Live.
For some fans, they may recognize players that came from major universities, but there are two players who played college ball here in San Antonio. Wide Receiver Josh Stewart played for UTSA and Australian Punter Jospeh Zema from Incarnate Word made the final roster.
James Madison High School and TCU Alumni Aaron Green who is the Commanders’ running back, is actually from San Antonio. The Riverwalk runs through his veins like us. Green is the hometown kid that will get many fans excited not only in his success but the Commanders success.
The Commanders will kickoff the season Saturday night at the Alamodome against the San Diego Fleet at 7pm. Doors open at 5:30pm. The game will be broadcasted on CBS.
