Two Wranglers Get Individual AFL Honors

The AFL playoffs start tomorrow, of course, but the season's over for the 4-12 Wranglers after an out-of-town loss to Tampa Bay last weekend. Two Wranglers got some good news this week, though.

Austin kicker Mark Lewis was named First Team All-Arena and defensive lineman Rob Schroeder was named to the All-Rookie team.

I'm not sure if this proves my theory that the Wranglers have way more talent than a 4-12 team has any right to have, but if the Wranglers really do become a minor-league team, I guess Schroeder and Lewis have some pretty sweet résumé padding now.

The AFL playoffs don't make it to Texas until Saturday, July 7, when the 15-1 Dallas Desperados will most likely come down from their fences and kick a TBA team's collective ass.

This year's Arena Bowl (best bet: Dallas vs. San Jose) is scheduled for July 29 in New Orleans. That weekend, the AFL owners will meet and possibly discuss whether the Wranglers will drop to the AF2.
