The Houston Riders are an expansion team that joined The League in between Blitz I and II, apparently during the 2006 season. The Riders have replaced the Dallas Aztecs as The League's only Texas franchise, when the Aztecs moved to Mexico City, in a controversial move by Commissioner Clive Hanson, who Dallas fans feel betrayed the city. The Riders have been near the bottom of Division 3 in their two seasons in the league, mostly because they drafted poorly. This year is different however; they've drafted a solid rookie class and Daunell Sullivan appears to be the perfect asset to solidify a powerful running game. These perennial losers have a chance to make some noise this year. In 2013, the Philadelphia Brawlers traded Mike Mexico and Terrence Noel to the Riders for cash.
Team Captain: RB Daunell Sullivan
