1964 was the inaugural season of the Snohomish Rough Riders and it was a rocky one.  Losing 4 out of 6 games, the 'Riders only wins were against the Keyport Navy team.

 

In 1965 a player debuted who would go on to become a legend in Northwest Minor League football.  Wes Fischer joined the team as a player and eventually went on to coach the Snohomish Vikings for over 25 years.

 

Such rough luck did the Ramblers have during the 1970's that during a 12-6 loss to the Whatcom County Lakers, they were defeated by an offensive lineman.  Steve Yonich, Lakers offensive tackle caught both scoring passes on tackle-eligible plays.

 

 

When the Ramblers shut down operations in 1978, some of the players joined the Lynnwood/Edmonds Lions
