The newest media company to cover Austin FC and soccer at all levels statewide has revealed its name, launch date and site as of Wednesday after journalists of the publication have been teasing the project for months.
The publication, named The Striker Texas, launched its site, TheStrikerTexas.com, which is taking emails for updates on the publication. Its site and app will have the latest soccer news in Texas starting next month, ahead of the Austin FC season opener.
After a week of controversy surrounding President Donald Trump, he is scheduled to make a final public appearance as president in South Texas on Tuesday. His visit is being met with negative feedback from the community after the president incited an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week on the baseless premise that voter fraud led to President-elect Joe Biden's victory.
Adding to an eventful start to 2021, Central Texans experienced snow, bringing power outages, school closures and pictures of snowy Austin to social media.
In a rare event only seen every so many years, Central Texas residents are experiencing the icy touch of snow—and they couldn't be happier.
Snowy weather is rolling through Austin after a storm dropped temperatures to the 30s. A winter weather advisory was put in place from early Sunday morning until midnight.
