Welcome to The Cox Report. This is Brandon Cox and this new weekly report will keep you up to date on all of the latest news surrounding the Allen Americans and the ECHL, as well as player profiles and insights into events from the Americans storied twelve-year history.  

Many of you may remember my original blog, Livin’ In The Red. This blog was first launched in 2010 during the Allen Americans inaugural season. At its inception, the blog was the only independent site fully dedicated to bringing fans everything related to the Allen Americans. As the team’s popularity grew, so did the blog and before long, Livin’ In The Red was turned into a full blown website. The next few years saw the site bring fans a tremendous amount of coverage including the release of the behind the scenes documentary, “Behind the Red”, which provided viewers with an all access look at the team during a 2 game set vs. the Odessa Jackalopes in the spring of 2011.

Following the 2011-12 season, a decision was made to go into an official hiatus while I focused on my family and career. However, I’m very happy to report that with the support of my family, I am making a comeback after 8 seasons away. 

I am very excited to bring my thoughts on the team to the greatest fans in the ECHL and would love to hear your ideas for the types of stories that you want to read. Please feel free to reach me on Twitter @americansblog.

Thank you for all the support and Don’t Stop Livin’ In The Red!!
