People are always surprised to learn where the West Valley Head Hunters are located. To most in the Valley of the Son, the West Valley stops at UPIG, University of Phoenix in Glendale, home of the NFL Cardinals.
Bubba Hense, owner of the Hunters does not try to explain it anymore. When folks ask him where is the team from and he says "Surprise" it just confuses people. So now he just tells them "we are from the place Champions are made."
Well in 2016 the squad had a rash of injuries to two way starters that slowed them down. In 2017 the guys are back stronger and faster and ready to play.
After watching them scrimmage, I can honestly say the Head Hunters have three of the fastest players in the state. It is going to be an exciting season to watch them bring the hatchet on both offense and defense. Visit their site here.
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.
