Dill’s hanging up his suit and tie
Buffalo Warriors owner Terence Dill is stepping back onto the hardwood to help the New York based franchise in a new phase of the club’s future.
From joining the Atlantic Coast Professional Basketball League (ACPBL) two seasons ago to moving into a new league and having a reality series on television this year, life is in full swing for the Warriors.
And for none more so than co-owner Dill, who announced he will pull off the suit and tie for a basketball jersey and sneakers as he returns to the hardwood for the upcoming season.
“I have decided to hang up the suit for now and come back to the hardwood,” said Dill. “I just couldn’t keep my feet off the floor, now I will be back to playing again this year and my co-owner Ed Bednarz and the rest of the front office can handle things from here on out, just until I’m ready to hang up the shoes again.”
Dill’s team left the ACPBL last season citing team issues as a chief reason for the withdrawal.
Bermudian Dill and fellow Buffalo-based player Franklin Jackson formed the team and joined the league last term, with both acting as general managers.
Although the decision to fold for the current season was necessary, Dill still had his sights on bringing the team back to compete in a league next term.
He did just that with extra, adding a television deal to the club’s resume that will hopefully hit airwaves this Spring that will showcase the new talent around the team as well as an inside look at how things are run.
While the transition to the new league, the Premier Basketball League (PBL), has been smooth, Dill is still looking to add a few marquee signing to the roster, although he still pursues bringing in Bermudian talent to his roster.
“We have been progressing very smoothly with this transition to the new league which starts in March. We have also started filming for our TV series that is due to hit major networks In February or March.
“Over the course of just this month we have acquired some new talent that will help push up to a championship season, one being a 7’4” centre and the other a guard that just so happens to also have a record deal.
“Also, I am still looking to give a Bermudian a shot at playing out here on my team for the upcoming season in fall of 2013.”
