Former NFL Linebacker Myles Jack becomes the new majority owner of the Americans

The Allen Americans  are excited to welcome Myles Jack as our new owner and as the first African American majority owner of a professional hockey team!

In purchasing the team, the Jacks become the first Black majority owners of a pro hockey franchise.

“From the football field to the business world, I have always brought passion and leadership to my teams,” Jack said in a statement. “The opportunity to lead this franchise and serve our great fans is an incredible responsibility. I’m excited to bring a first-class, family-friendly entertainment option to this community alongside our great partners.”

A native of Scottsdale, AZ, Jack announced his retirement from the NFL after seven seasons in August after having signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Originally taken with the 36th overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft out of UCLA, Jack spent the first six seasons of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars before playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2022.

For his career, Jack recorded 617 tackles, 6.5 sacks and three interceptions, including a pick-six, in 103 games.

The Americans open their 2023-2024 season on Oct. 20 against the Idaho Steelheads.
