-- Black Diamond PR & Sport Management Firm, one of the top 10 independently owned Sport Management Firms in the U.S., is pleased to announce the signing of their client, and Omaha native, Tracey Kozak, to the Billings Outlaws. The Billings Outlaws are a professional arena team in the Champions Indoor Football League (CIF), located in Billings, Montana.
Tracey Kozak, an Omaha resident, is a 6'7, 250 lb tight-end and wide receiver out of Midland University. He has also been trained as a defensive end. During the pandemic, Kozak attended numerous professional football combines where he logged numbers that turned heads. In addition to his massive frame, his speed and agility were key signing traits for the Outlaws. Tracey has proven to be a skilled weapon on-the field and will be a valued addition to the team in the upcoming season.
"I'm so thankful for this opportunity and I'm excited to continue my football journey in Billings with Coach Brian Schmidt, a great coaching staff, and team," says Kozak. "I'm hoping to bring value to the team and contribute in any way that I can."
The Billings Outlaws won three indoor championships between the years of 2000-2010, with eight appearances in 11 seasons. They played in front of more than 8,000 spectators at MetraPark, now First Interstate Arena. The team folded after a tornado destroyed their facilities at SportsPlex in 2010. The anticipated return of the Billings Outlaws will be one for the books as they fight to restore their rightful place in professional arena football.
In 2021, Champions Indoor Football had active teams in Salina, Wichita and Dodge City, Kansas; Omaha, Nebraska; Sioux City, Iowa; and Gillette. Omaha won the league title 40-39 on July 17 over Salina, which was guided by former Outlaws coach Heron O'Neal. Two teams from Texas and one from Oklahoma were inactive; another expansion team from Denver figures to give the league 10 active teams for 2022.
