Mason signs contract to play in indoor football league

ALLEN — One year after finishing a stellar football career with Texas A&M University-Commerce, Danny Mason will be suiting up for the Texas Revolution of the Indoor Football League.

The 2012 Lone Star Conference Linebacker of the Year Signed a contract with the Revolution last week.

Formerly the Allen Wranglers, the Revolution play in the Allen Event Center. This is their second season as the Revolution, but their 14th as a franchise. The team is probably most famous for signing former NFLstar Terrell Owens, who played eight games for them.

“I was in school this past semester, not knowing what the next move for football was,” Mason said. “I was staying prepared for opportunities, watching the Lions restore the roar this past season. The Texas Revolution reached out to me and asked for some film, and we went from there.”

Mason earned the team’s interest from the 2013 Texas vs The Nation game he competed in.

“The defensive coordinator remembered me from the Texas vs The Nation practice, and he told me to come out here and treat it like a developmental league, get my film up and take care of business,” Mason said. “He said scouts are coming every day, and the sky is the limit.”

He hopes his time wit the Revolution will help him move closer to his goal of playing in the NFL.

“[A&M-Commerce head coach] Colby Carthel’s dad, Don, knows the coach I’m going to be playing for [Chris Williams],” Mason said. “He told me great things about Williams, and that helps the process a little more. I just stepped back and trusted the process; it’s still a tough process not knowing where I want to be at. This is one step in the ladder toward playing in the NFL. I’m keeping God first.”
