In 1997, Rob Castleman and a small group of players from southern Oregon created the Douglas Outlaws and competed as a independent team in the NWFL (then called the Pacific Football League 'North'). The Outlaws, located in Oakland, Oregon played games against the teams from the PFL. At the same time, another Oregon team called the Southern Oregon Timberwolves played the same type of independent schedule in the PFL South (Northern California). At the conclusion of that year, both teams decided Oregon needed its own league. Although the Outlaws remained the same, the Timberwolves broke up with players from the 'Wolves forming 3 separate teams; the Rogue Warriors, the Rogue Valley Blaze (both from Medford), and the Klamath County Crusaders (Klamath Falls).

In 1998, the Douglas Outlaws finished with an overal 2-5 record (1-5 in league).

In 1999 and 2000, the Douglas Outlaws showed a little improvement, but so did the rest of the OFL. Hence, the Outlaws finished both seasons 1-7 and 1-6 respectively.

In 2001, the OFL saw the perennial powerhouse Rogue Warriors roster decimated by a local arena league pro team that opened the door for the Outlaws who finished the OFL season 5-2 culminating in a 3-2 win over the Crusaders for the Outlaws first and only OFL championship.

The 2002 season would be the last for the Outlaws in Douglas County going 1-7 on the year. After that season, the Outlaws changed locations setting up camp in Coos Bay, OR. changing their name from the Douglas Outlaws to the Southwestern Oregon Raiders. Opening the Door for the Umpqua Valley Knights to set up shop in Roseburg.
