Springtime football is returning to South Texas as the San Antonio Brahmas of the newly formed United Football League take on the D.C. Defenders in an Easter Sunday season opener.

The Brahmas have had a rollercoaster off-season, being one of only eight teams to survive the XFL-USFL merger late last year. The Brahmas also grabbed headlines after signing YouTube star Donald De La Haye, also known as "Destroying," as kicker.

The final roster, released earlier this month, also includes Incarnate Word graduate Kelechi Anyalebechi and quarterback Quinten Dormandy, who grew up in Boerne.

$27.50 and up, 11 a.m. Sunday, March 31, Alamodome, 100 Montana St., (210) 207-3663,
