Former Kansas Jayhawk Billy Owens grateful to be playing football in Mexico

First season game in Mexico, first win and first touchdown. Billy Owens could not have started his career as a receiver in Mexico any better.

Owens, a native of Galveston, Texas and former University of Kansas Jayhawk, contributed to the team’s victory with a 75-yard touchdown during the second half, allowing the Eagles to take the lead and record a win over the defending champion Mayas.

“It’s always good to score a touchdown; Everything around it is fun. “

Likewise, Owens played a key role on defense, where he proved to be a player capable of facing passing situations and not allowing opponents to complete the play or win yards after the catch.

The wearer of number 14 said he was grateful for the opportunity to play on a professional team. Likewise, he mentioned his gratitude to the Mexican fans.

“They are very loyal, I hoped that this would be exciting and it was.”

Finally, Owens expressed his joy at seeing his mother sitting in the stands supporting him.

“It’s great that she could have been here for my first game, I cannot describe how I feel. I’m happy.”
