Soul Prove To Be The Beast Of The East With Win(5/23) The Philadelphia Soul (7-1) capped off their regular season games at the Wells Fargo Center with a huge win against the Orlando Predators (7-1.) The win places the Soul ahead of the Predators in the the American Conference due to the head to head record between the two teams.
AFL Power Rankings through Week 7(5/18) The Steel and the Storm were both THIS CLOSE to notching their first wins of the season. Clearly, both look significantly better with Shane Austin and Jason Boltus respectively under center than they did with their other revolving doors at quarterback. It wasn't enough for either to ultimately get their first win, but at least I could argue that all eight teams are now officially competitive for the first time all year long.
Nick Davila becomes eighth quarterback to throw for 30,000 yards, seventh to throw for 700 TDs(5/14) Had you looked back at an Arizona Rattlers' history book before 2010, you'd see the name Sherdrick Bonner plastered all over it without any other quarterback in sight. Nick Davila still has a long ways to go to become the most prolific pivot in the history of one of the most storied franchises in the AFL, but he took a major step on Saturday night when he became the eighth quarterback in AFL history to throw for 30,000 yards in his career and the seventh to throw for at least 700 TDs as well.
Storm show fight but fall short against rival Predators(5/14) Props to you, AFL schedule makers. Not only did you manage to have the Tampa Bay Storm play two games in a span of five days, with a flight to and from Philadelphia squeezed in there, but you also chose Friday the 13th to feature the 60th edition of the War on I-4. The undefeated Orlando Predators hosting the 30-point underdog, and winless Storm. What could possibly go wrong?
Rod Windsor becomes 15th in AFL history to log 10,000 receiving yards(5/14) Rod Windsor is at it again. Just one game after becoming the all-time leader in receptions in Arizona Rattlers history, Windsor made a bit more history by becoming the first Rattler ever to haul in 10,000 receiving yards for the franchise. Windsor is the 15th man in AFL history to log 10,000 receiving yards for his career.
TT Toliver becomes first to 5,000 yards, 400 receptions with two teams(5/13) ORLANDO - TT Toliver was a fan favorite with the Orlando Predators for years and years. He had over 10,000 career all-purpose yards with the Preds. It's only fitting that on a night which was 70th edition of the War on I-4 that he became the first receiver in AFL history to have 5,000 career receiving yards with two different teams.
