All-America

 

The Cavaliers appeared in 1994 when Bill Booth created an entry for the Northwest Football League and lasted 3 seasons.  It's most famous alum, Lance Westendorf, would go on to set numerous records as a Pierce County Bengal and Puget Sound Jet through the late 90's and early 2000's.

 

The Cavaliers were a middle to lower tier team throughout it's 3 year existence, but created the most stories in the NWFL when the franchise and it's owner became embroiled in the "Who's Who" of NWFL football.  The Cavaliers were to have folded and be replaced by the Posse in 1997, only to have the Cavalier name be recognized later in place of the Cougars who were playing at the same time as the "new" Cavaliers (Washington).  The Posse/Cougars eventually split into the Buccaneers and Raiders with some players sprinkled among the Thunderbolts and Panthers.  A coaching carousel involving Cedric Walker, Jay Atwood and Shay Dean ensued as Bill Booth owned, disowned, the reowned teams around the Vancouver area as the common thread between the Cavalier (x 2)/Cougar/Posse triangle.
