In 2006 the Riverhawks were formed originally as a player owned entity, but ended up as a not for profit, through the work of Justin Whitaker who served as the initial President of the organization.  The team played some independent games which did not count in Evergreen League standings.  The franchise finally broke through with it's first victory, a 20-0 win against the Columbia River Coyotes of the Oregon Football League. 

 

2007 and 2008 were both one-win seasons for the Riverhawks.  A bright point was the efforts of wide receiver Emerson Furgeuson who set an EFL record for receptions in 2007 and was selected as a second-team All-GNFA player.

 

The 2009 Riverhawks were a much improved version of years past even though the record was still 2-6, the quality of play brought to the contests was increased.

 

2010 started with two close losses to Spokane and Wenatchee before numbers started to become a problem.  The Riverhawks had to forfeit two of their final three games to close out a winless season.
