These guys are the real deal: a volunteer, semi-pro, public safety football team comprised of police officers, firefighters, EMTs, and other full- time first responders in the Central Texas area. They play in the National Public Safety Football League, which raises funds for charities across the Nation.

Their first mission is “To raise funds and awareness for local and national charities.” –Npsfl.org

The second is “To develop camaraderie and good will among the public safety agencies throughout the nation.” –Npsfl.org

The league has raised over $1 million since 1998 for different charities across the Nation. The Wolf Pack also raises funds for The 100 Club of Central Texas. This charity supports first responders and their families, who have been injured or killed, with emotional and financial assistance.

Lead by head coach Jason Nassour, the Central Texas Wolf Pack has been bringing the heat this season! The team is filled with hardworking full-time first responders who compete for the love of their community, who play with heart for themselves, each other, and their supporters.

“We believe there is no better place to start encouraging our youth to engage in team sports. By encouraging our leaders of tomorrow to be involved, to engage, and to problem solve, we believe not only will our mission build ability awareness, excellent work ethic, and self-confidence, but awareness of their individual role and its importance to the success of a team.” – Ctxwolfpack.org

The games provide a great family-friendly environment with family fun activities prior to kick off. These guys work hard on and off the field for the Central Texas community. They all are dedicated athletes and play for the love of the game.
