Round Rock, Texas –The IWFL is pleased to
announce it has awarded a new team membership to Rex Johnson
representing the Nebraska Stampede. The Stampede will begin play as a
full member team in 2015 with a schedule of exciting games in the IWFL
“We’re proud to welcome the Stampede to the
IWFL. Julie, Rex and their family have built a very strong organization
in Omaha. They have spent years working to properly establish the sport
there and in doing so have earned the respect of the women’s tackle
football community. I expect this team to continue to be very successful
on and off the field,” said Kezia Disney, IWFL Chief Operating Officer.
The Nebraska Stampede will offer women an
opportunity to learn to play full tackle football, train in a
professional environment and compete at the international level. The
team will play regionally in the IWFL Midwest Division during the
regular season with a schedule featuring match ups with some of the best
teams in the sport.
“The Stampede welcomes the opportunity to
compete with the established teams in the Midwest Division, especially
the first women's football team, the Minnesota Vixen. We believe the
stability and consistency of these organizations will produce a better
on-field product and provide our fans with a broader base of competitive
opponents visiting Omaha. We look forward to visiting and competing at
new venues and creating new personal and organizational relationships,
based on integrity and sportsmanship,” stated Rex Johnson, Nebraska
Stampede owner and IWFL Delegate.
The Stampede will be holding tryouts for the
