The NTX Devils currently have 4 Board positions and several Advisors. All positions are volunteers and each individual is a leader and experienced in their field.
The Devils seek to be a professionally run club, with an emphasis on our off field community involvement as much as our performance on field.

Unfortunately for him, it was off season so he's yet to catch an AFL game in person!
