BULLS NEW COACH HAPPY WITH PROGRESS IN OFFSEASON

New Amarillo Bulls head coach John Rogge hit the ground running in his effort to recruit players for the upcoming season after taking over for Dennis Williams a few months ago . At a news conference yesterday, Rogge said he's not done yet. He has several camps he will be attending in the next few weeks before players begin arriving the last week of August. Bulls players will hold their first practice here in Amarillo on August 25th.

However, Rogge has had to deal with an unexpected problem along the way, the flood at the Amarillo Civic Center, where the team plays it games and has has offices and locker rooms. Rogge is trying to put a positive spin on things, saying at least they are getting new equipment and offices. He added that at least it didn't happen during the season which would have been much worse.
