Defending State Champs Tucson Demons
The off season for football players is the toughest time of all. No matter how your squad finished, you still have something to prove.
The champs from 2016 are back. The Tucson Demons won it all last seaon. Will they be ready for the challenge from the team they beat the Tempe Predators? Then you have their rivals from Scottsdale, the Crusaders waiting for their shot at a championship.
In all nine teams are getting ready for the Race for Gold in this the 23rd season for the Arizona Football League. The CRU, Preds along with the West Valley Head Hunters have been in some title games. They won some and lost some. Each believes this is their year.
Throw in the Cave Creek Dragons, East Valley Vengeance, Peoria Raiders, Prescott Valley Patriots and the Tucson Punishers to make it interesting. They all want a piece of the pie.
Each team has added new players, coaches and taken a hard core attitude in their off season preparation. I for one cannot wait. To learn about each team, visit our team link at the top of the page.
