Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas Locomotives will open their new season tonight against the Virigina Destroyers at Sam Boyd Stadium.

In addition to it being the first game of the season, the professional football team will help kick off Fueled By The Fallen's 7 Forgotten Words Core Values campaign.

Those words are "Yes Sir, No Sir, Please and Thank You."

The 911 Angel Camaros, carrying all names of the fallen as a result of Sept. 11, 2001, will escort Boys and Girls Club attendees. The cars will then be placed in the end zone for the duration of the game.

Tonight will also be the first game for Brian Banks as a member of the United Football League.

Banks was exonerated early this year in a California rape case.

He was a promising 16-year-old football player in California when he was falsely accused of kidnapping and rape and sent to prison for 5 years.

Ticket information can be found on the team's website.

The game starts at 6 p.m..
