All-America

 

The Cougars were officially formed in 1999, but due to a league ruling, were forced to play under the Washington Cavaliers name as Bill Booth was the owner on record of both teams.  The term "Cougaliers" was coined as the former Vancouver Posse players played out the season as the Cavaliers struggling to stay above .500.  By 2000, the Columbia Cougars were recognized as their own team and broke away to a 10-win season and an appearance in the NFA Playoffs, a playoff system created by Monahan.  The success was short lived, as Cedric Walker left to form the Willamette Valley Raiders taking the Cougars talent with them. 

 

2001 was a struggle for Monohan's team as they fell to the cellar of the NWFL and folded up at the end of the season following a 61-0 beat down by the Buccaneers.
