The Fort Worth Cavalry are a former franchise primarily recognized by the Arena Football League. With the demise of the Dallas Texans, the AFL did not want to abandon the thought of a team being represented in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, a major media market, and thus the Cavalry was born. The team debuted in 1994, only to fold the same year after some financial issues, having posted a 5-7 record. The Cavalry is one of nine franchises in league history to last only one year in the AFL.

One and Done (1994)Edit

The Fort Worth Cavalry were one of three new teams to enter the AFL in 1994. The Cavalry hired Michael Trigg as head coach, but a quarterback ring-around hampered the team for the entirety of the season. The team won their first franchise game against fellow expansion team Milwaukee Mustangs, where they won candidly by a score of 65-28. The team would go on to lose three of their next four games to start the season at 2-3. After winning their next two games against the Milwaukee Mustangs and Charlotte Rage, the team went into a four game slid, only to win their final game of the season against the Miami Hooters. The Cavalry finished the 1994 AFL regular season with an overall record of 5-7, which would be enough to hoist them into the playoffs. The team lost to the Orlando Predators in the first round of the playoffs.

Prior to the 1995 AFL season, the team announced that it would be shutting down all football operations.
