The Waxahachie Indians are a team to be feared even without TCU signee LaDarius Brown.

That is what it looks like at least as several teams who normally play in the South Metro Passing League have backed out of the league for the 2011 season.

Without enough teams to make a league the Indians have four dates set in June for 7-on-7 action and hope to add a couple more.

Waxahachie will open play Tuesday, May 31 at 5 p.m. at DeSoto before playing Tuesday, June 14 at 5 p.m. at Midlothian.

Since the Indians do not have a home field to play at due to the construction at Lumpkins Stadium all the scheduled 7-on-7 games are away from Waxahachie.

Waxahachie returns to DeSoto on Tuesday, June 21 for a 5 p.m. match before ending the scheduled season Tuesday, June 28 at Midlothian.

Last year Brooks Teeter and Don King III traded series in the Metro league at quarterback for the Indians in preparation for what they expected in the UIL football campaign. In the UIL season they rotated play-by-play at the position.

King was hurt in the final weeks of spring practice and will not be able to compete in passing drills this 7-on-7 season leaving Teeter the chance to show what he can do as the main signal caller.
