Indianapolis, IN.  The American Basketball Association (ABA) today announced that Larry Leonard and the Houston Red Storm are back for the upcoming season.  The last time the Houston Red Storm played in the ABA was 2010-2011; the team has been a part of the ABA since 2006-2007. “Larry took a couple of years off to assist his father in planting a church that would take him away from the ABA,” stated ABA CEO Joe Newman.  “What Larry wasn’t expecting was to be elected bishop during that time. Because of this, it took longer for Larry to come back into the ABA. We are very pleased to have him back.”
“It has always been my plan to return to the ABA, but because of my new elevation in ministry, I just didn’t know when,” added Leonard. “I cherished the memories that I spent in the ABA and the relationships I created with each and every player that played for to be able to come back at this juncture in my life is a bit exciting to say the least.:”
He continued, “a lot has changed since I was gone.  This season I am finally able to surround myself in people that have bought into the vision that I’ve always had for the organization. Play hard, look good doing  it and bring home a championship to the city of Houston.”
Tryout dates for the Houston Red Storm and dancers will be available shortly along with the launching of a new website. For more information on any upcoming dates and events concerning the Houston Red Storm, please email or visit
