I will be moving to the Reno area in a few months for a new job and I was just wondering if there were any semi-pro like football teams around. I'm graduating from college and I played college ball so i was hoping I could continue.

There is a rumor that they may build a small arena at the legends at sparks marina, and they may get an Arena Football team. Other than that I am not aware of anything.

There is a huge flag football tournament this July being hosted by GladiatorAthletics.com. I know of a lot of former Nevada Wolfpack players entering and they are really good and competitive. That's about all I know.

Default Let's create a team....

We could create a team in Sparks/Reno. I am sure we could find sponsors to pay the fees and we just have to do some advertising. I am moving to the parks area in Nov2010 and have a couple years of Semi-Pro football in. I played for the Bellingham Bulldogs in the (NAFL League) and I think we could get into that league, we just need to get bodys and see if it is something that will work? There is also a NV and CAL league that is pretty good too. But the NAFL is all across the US I think they have 72 teams this year. And the Championship game is in either TX, Lousiana, FLA, Cali... Just an Idea... Let me know what you think with your posts!!

That would be awesome if we could get a semi-pro football league going in Reno or Sparks. I played high school ball as an undersized guy and would like to see if i can prove myself more against full on grown men even though i am barely leaving high school. So J whit reply to this and lets try to get something working cause i know some guys who would love to make a league.

I would be very interested in playing if this league comes around I am a former O lineman and right now I am 6 foot 6 and 265 but could easily get up to the 300 again when I played. Please contact me with more information [email]bigpumps73@gmail.com[/email].
