This group shines with great sportsmanship and hockey playing talent. I've been watching these guys since their inception and have gone to every championship game. Go Tornado!
I will always be a fan of the O'l Tornado, I still wear my jersey proud. Sad to see this team not do as well as it's past performance. My heart continues to root and follow the spirit inside the Brahmas.
Enjoyed my evening game and how the support for youth local teams by Xtraman Discount Card Fundraiser and Tornado is compelling. The South division competition is very entertaining to watch!
The Texas Tornado hockey team started as a Junior team owned and operated by the Consolidated Sports Holdins USA, Inc and appeared for the first time in NAHL in 1999 and arranged to play out of Frisco, Texas, USA.
The team did not hesitate to be under the radar, as they made a big splash in their first years; finishing 1st in their West division and making it to the semifinals the first year. The latter years they were a force to be reckon as they continued to win 1st place in their division.
In 2002, the Tornado transferred into the newly formed Southern Division and had an unprecedented franchise success. During the expansion years, the team played their home games at the Dr Pepper Arena in Frisco, Texas.
Four years later, the team made the record books as the first team to win three consecutive NAHL Robertson Cup National Championship in 15 years.
The Tornado were sold to Texas Hockey Partners (THP) and re-branded as the Lone Star Brahmas during the 2013 offseason.
