Bulls Add Veteran Leadership To Line-up

AMARILLO, TX – The Amarillo Bulls added more veteran leadership to the forward corps following a trade today with the Coulee Region Chill.

The Bulls announced they have sent forward Collin Price to the Coulee Region Chill in exchange for 20 year-old forward Billy Duma.

“We are very excited to add Billy to our family,” said Bulls Head Coach Rocky Russo. “He is a very high energy player with an excellent skill set. But more importantly, he is an excellent leader with tremendous character. We would also like to wish Collin the very best of luck as he moves to his new opportunity with the Chill.”
