Honors

 

The King County Vikings were created in 1982 in the Burien area after the Flyers had been folded a couple of years prior. 

 

Following the Sept 18th loss to the Puget Sound Kings, GM Lee Johnston fired Phil Pompeo which led to a player revolt and by the end of the season, the team was hard pressed to field a team.  On Oct 23 the Vikings traveled down to Gresham, Oregon to take on the Steelheads only to discover they had none of their starting offensive linemen.  Oregon City smashed the Vikings 34-6. 

 

The following season the Vikings moved from Burien to Ilwaco, WA and split time between Ilwaco and Astoria, OR.

 

The team itself was a completely different player pool since the ownership relocated and many of the Burien-area players would find their ways to the Warhawks (John Peterman and Al Bessette for example) and many others hung up their cleats.
