Coaching Staff Pleased With Main Selection Camp


BRIGHTON, MICH – Tough decisions await the Amarillo Bulls coaching staff as the Main Selection Camp enters its final day on Sunday in Brighton, Michigan.

          Activities started on Thursday and Friday with a Goaltender Camp followed by the Main Selection Camp that featured an all-star style game on Saturday and another to follow on Sunday.

          “I’m very pleased with the work that Rocky and the scouting staff have done,” said Bulls Head Coach Dennis Williams. “In the three years, this has been the hardest for me to select this year’s squad. The playing level has been very even. It’s going to take some time after the second all star game to process what it is we have to do. Some of these decisions are tough but that is what it’s all about. “

          Williams said the first All-Star game finished 5-3 with an empty net goal and featured some great plays.

          In the two previous seasons, the Bulls have been known as the most physically conditioned team in the North American Hockey League. That fitness level was a big key for the team against their opponents in the third period. Williams said the players have come to camp in great shape.

          “The guys look good and strong,” he explained. “They are in the second phase of their summer workout routine and have turned in their cards. I think some need to be in better shape. I have been very impressed with the veterans that have returned. You can see the benefits of them having played in a Bulls organization for a year. They are coming in strong, confident and with a swagger to be great leaders and examples for those kids who have come into camp this weekend.”

          It won’t be long before the 2012-2013 edition of the Amarillo Bulls hit the ice at the Amarillo Civic Center. Season Tickets and Corporate Marketing Partnerships are available. For further information, please call the Bulls Office at 806-242-1122.
