Semi-pro football coming to Pinson for 2014 season
By Gary Lloyd
PINSON — A semi-pro football team will play its home games in Pinson this spring.
The Alabama Crusaders will play home games at Willie Adams Stadium on the campus of Pinson Valley High School beginning the last week of February, said the team’s president, Dewayne Moore. Games will be on Saturdays.
The team includes former players from the University of Alabama, Auburn University, UAB and more, Moore said.
The team plays in the National Developmental Football League, Moore said. The team last season played in Pelham as part of the Xtreme South Football League. Moore said he thinks the team may play at Pinson Valley High School for the next three seasons.
“We’re bringing big-time football to this whole area,” Moore said. “We’re pretty excited.”
Moore said he wants the community involved. Events are being planned leading up to and through the season, he said.
“We just want everybody to come out and support us,” Moore said.
