On Sunday the TIRR Texans (Houston) took first place with a gritty win over the Switzerland Fighting Snakes in the title game. The Boise Bombers (Idaho) led by Spencer Larimore, finished third with a nice win over the Edmonton (Canada) Steel Wheels. Rounding out Sunday’s great games, the North Texas Cowboys (Dallas) were unable to herd the Texas Stampede (Austin).

Very Special Thanks to our Sponsor’s for making all of this possible: C & R Medical Supplies (RISE longest tenured major sponsor at 6 years), Advanced Mobility Systems, Coloplast, City of Irving Parks and Recreation, and the Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation.

It goes without saying RISE has the absolute best volunteers in the world hands down! To highlight just a few of the very many folks it takes to pull this event off, a Huge Shout Out to: Calvin Petty/Scorer’s Table Manager; assisted by Ken Freed (does everything), Bill Wyland, and Carol Kyer. Rick Brauer/Game Announcer, Referees managed by Chuck French and Genny Gomez, Canine Companions group led by Beth Jerner, Charles Kenyon and his folks from Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, Students from Texas Women’s University, and Megan Smith and her group from COTA’s. There are many, many more and each and every one of you is truly appreciated…
