Chicago Enforcers Training
News, Notes and Quotes
To say Enforcers head coach Ron Meyer was unhappy with his teams
performance in a practice game held January 17 in the Citrus Bowl
in Orlando would be an understatement.

good game for us to play because we learned a valuable lesson, we

allow teams to report stats and scores from workouts with other
The good thing was it was just a practice game, said
Meyer. We let a lot of people play. When you play a practice
game, your biggest fear is that somebody gets hurt. The good thing
for us was nobody got hurt.
However, Meyer was able to find some bright spots with the team
as well as some non-bright spots.
We put John Avery in for about six or seven plays but he showed
how good a player he is, said Meyer. Besides Avery,
our other running backs, LeShon Johnson and Charles Wiley, played
well. However, our quarterbacks still need a lot of work.
On defense, we got a rude awakening, continued Meyer.
We thought all we had to do was put on our uniforms and we
would play well. This team will not want to be around me the next
