Last season Wildfong pulled together a team in a matter of three weeks before the season kicked off leading to a slow start in his first in the NAHL. As the season progressed, Lone Star made several roster changes leading to a team that had one of the best records in the league from January on.

This year with a full off season to assemble a roster, Wildfong has the Lone Star Brahmas firmly in the NAHL South Division playoff mix in a virtual dead heat with Topeka and Wichita Falls. The Brahmas can boast of the second best goals against average and fourth best goals scored per game average in the league as they have racked up a 26 – 9 – 3 record. Lone Star has yet to lose on home ice with a 19 – 0 – 1 record at the NYTEX Sports Centre.
