Texas Revolution players and owner and dancers win 2014 IFL honors

The 2014 IFL season for the Texas Revolution did not end they way the team would have wanted, or for that matters expected. That does not mean the Revolution did not achieve status among the IFL with some of the top honors from the league. From players, to owners, and to the fan favorites - the dancers, all won honors in this 2014 IFL season.

Starting with the head man himself, Tommy Benizio. Benizio has been around the IFL for the longest time. In fact Benizio played a vital role helping to and leading the merger of the UIF and Intense League to create the new IFL. He was also the first Commissioner of the IFL serving from 2008-2012, before taking over as President of the Allen Wranglers, and created in it's place, the Texas Revolution. A team that has been in the IFL for the past two seasons. This body and other bodies of work earned Benizio a spot in the first Inaugural IFL Hall of Fame.

But the owner was not the only one that ended up with honors from the IFL. The Revolution along with the Prestige Dance and Performing Arts Centre, earned a spot as the "2014 IFL Dance Team of the Year". The second time in as many years the dance team has won top honors for entertaining the crowd, and it's dedication to the team. The dancers are a big part of the Revolution organization success as they are seen all throughout Collin County at events and appearances. The award is based on providing the most talented and attractive dance team in the IFL. Uniforms, class, routines, and crowd interaction were also factors in deciding the award.

The players as well earned top honors in the IFL as well. The Revolution placed four players on all-league teams. WR Clinton Solomon, the IFL’s all-time leader in receiving yards (4,491) earned First Team honors. This is Solomon’s fifth selection to an all-league team (First Team ‘09, ’10, ‘13/Second Team ’11, ’12). Joining Solomon on the First Team is DB Frankie Solomon Jr. This is Solomon Jr.’s second straight First Team nod. Newcomers DL Demario Dixon and LB/DB Javicz Jones earned Second Team nods.
