#RatzReport: Dallas Rattlers play tomorrow!

Texas has its very own, Major League Lacrosse Team! StickStar will bring you coverage all Season!

To say that StickStar is excited for the very first season of our very own, Major Lacrosse League Franchise is an understatement.  What an accomplishment, Texas!  You have graduated!  While we still lack an NCAA,D1 team, this is a huge step for us locally and for the region.  At this point, Texas is working HARD to push its way into the hotbed category for lacrosse!  I believe we are well past "Lukewarm Bed."

Having started playing lacrosse in Texas in 1997, we have seen the landscape change tremendously.  20+ years of lacrosse in the Lone Star State; it has been a wild ride.  To say, now, that we have a professional lacrosse team playing at the Ford Center in Frisco is an amazing happening.

Of course, StickStar will provide you coverage with what we are calling the #RatzReport.  It’s catchy and falls in line with our #StickStarReport branding.  As you have come to expect, we will bring our consistent and comprehensive approach to the coverage along with our own, unique flavor.  We will have Instagram stories, game recaps, and other content along the way.

If you are getting to the party late, here is how we arrived tp this point:

  • Aug. 19th – MLL Championship held at the Star. Ohio Machine defeats Denver Outlaws 17-12.
  • Nov. 16th – MLL Announces Rattler Relocation to Dallas – Hold Press Conference at the Star.
  • Nov. 16th – Bill Warder announced new Head Coach.
  • Dec. 1st – John Galloway resigns with the Rattlers.The Rattlers would proceed to resign all of their major contributors, rebuilding a potent roster.
  • Mar. 25th – 1st Rattlers Practice at the Star.
  • April 18th – Rattlers select Ben Reeves (Yale) with the 4th overall pick in the MLL Draft.
  • April 21st – Dallas Rattlers win their first game, 15-9 against the Chesapeake Bayhawks..
  • April 27th - Dallas Rattlers drop their 1st game to the Charlotte Hounds 13-12.
  • April 29th – Rattlers take on the Denver Outlaws @ 2PM. Be there for a major event.

There you have it.  We have arrived.  It’s going to be an amazing ride, and we need everyone to do their best to support this endeavor.  Let’s pack the stands, bring the noise, and show our professional lacrosse team & league how much we appreciate them taking this leap of faith by moving South!  The Rochester Rattlers had loyal supporters; let us do them justice and create true home field advantage for our Dallas Rattlers!
