All-America

 

On the heels of the success of the Whatcom County Raiders franchise, Tom Abbott decided to try a "professional" venture with his football team and began the process of building a "pro" league.  Originally slated to be the Next Level Football League, the financial support wasn't in place and few team owners would throw their money into such a risky venture.  By teaming with the owners of the Tacoma Cobras and Oregon Thunderbolts, they were able to establish the Professional Developmental Football League as a semi-pro precursor to a league that would "pay" players and coaches with hopes of attracting the best athletes away from other area semi-pro teams.

 

The Blitz, mainly former Raiders and some Western Washington University football players who found themselves without a team after the school dropped it's program, opened up it's inaugural season on June 20 destroying the Pierce County Bengals.

 

The Blitz finished 5-3 with all of the losses coming at the hands of the Cobras including a 36-31 loss in the PDFL Championship.

 

The 2010 season was virtually a mirror of 2009 with the Cobras running through the PDFL unchallenged.  The Blitz gave up over 44 points all in all three meetings with Tacoma.  Nearly all of the Blitz starters earned All-League in what was virtually only three teams worth of choices.
