Baltimore MD - The American Indoor Football League (AIF) is thrilled to announce that the Corpus Christi Tritons will be joining its ranks for the highly anticipated 2024 season. The addition of the Corpus Christi Tritons brings a renewed sense of excitement and anticipation to the league and offers the vibrant coastal bend community an opportunity to embrace the exhilarating world of indoor football.
The vision and dedication of Kevin Cecil, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Corpus Christi Tritons, played a pivotal role in bringing the team to life. Kevin, an officer for the New Braunfels, Texas, police department, has always had a passion for serving his community. His journey in the world of football began with a previous arena team, where he gained invaluable experience and mentorship. Inspired by this opportunity, Kevin took it upon himself to start an arena football team, driven by the desire to give back to the Corpus Christi community.
Since the idea's inception in June 2022, Kevin has worked tirelessly to gauge community interest and rally support from local and small business owners. Overcoming numerous obstacles, his unwavering passion and dedication have struck a chord with the community, reigniting their enthusiasm for arena football. Kevin's involvement in various community events throughout the year has further cemented his commitment to building a foundation, fostering a community-oriented approach, and leaving a lasting legacy for years to come.
Owners Kevin Cecil and Joseph Alvey expressed their excitement and commitment to delivering an exceptional experience to Tritons fans. "We are honored to be part of the AIF and to bring professional indoor football to the incredible community of Corpus Christi," said Cecil. "We aim to build a team that the fans can be proud of and create a thrilling game-day atmosphere that keeps them coming back for more."
Joseph Alvey, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Corpus Christi Tritons, has over 21 years of law enforcement experience and is a member of the Bexar County, TX, Sheriff's Office. His deep-rooted love and passion for football began during his youth, playing in a local Pop Warner league in San Antonio, Texas. Throughout his football journey, including his time at Judson High School, Joseph was fortunate to be surrounded by exceptional mentors and coaches who fueled his passion for the sport. With over 30 years of combined experience as a player and coach at various levels, Joseph takes immense pride in mentoring young athletes to excel on the field while nurturing their growth as responsible and contributing members of the community.
Joseph Alvey added, "The Corpus Christi Tritons will showcase the talent, athleticism, and entertainment value of indoor football. We are committed to fostering strong community connections and building a winning culture both on and off the field. Get ready, Corpus Christi, because we are here to make waves in the AIF."
Joseph, Kevin, and their business partners turned the dream of being involved with an arena football team into reality. The Corpus Christi Tritons, now an official member of the American Indoor Football League (AIF), embody their shared vision of promoting football, community engagement, and personal development.
"We are incredibly proud to bring the Corpus Christi Tritons to the American Indoor Football League," said John Morris, Commissioner of the AIF.
