All-America

 

The Bulldawgs were the first expansion team of the Rocky Mountain Football League moving the league up to five teams from four.

 

The Bulldawgs were actually going to be two teams back in 1998.  Then Commissioner, Matt Culbertson, was working with two different leadership groups who expected to field two teams from the Burley/Twin Falls corridor of southern Idaho.  Ultimately, one team fell through and they merged their efforts.

Unseen before in the RMFL were the numbers of fans who were all around the field and they were selling Bulldawg hats, t-shirts and sweatshirts. They were the first team to begin to take the RMFL to the next level.  They were a shining example.

The Bulldawgs experienced some bumps and bruises through the years, however, and finally fought their way back to respectability and almost made it into the 2003 RMFL championship game, falling just short of beating juggernaut, Snake River Rebels, in the semi-finals. After qualifying for the playoffs in 2004, however, the then management of the Bulldawgs did the unthinkable, they forfeited their option to play in the RMFL playoffs. Management fell apart and many long time players of the team retired.

After almost folding entirely, a group of young players restored the team back into the RMFL the next season… as a new franchise, but a weakened franchise.  Struggling for the next couple of years the Bulldawgs improved each season, both in talent and organization, culminating in a solid 2009 in which they finished with a 7-1 regular season record and a high seed in the AA playoffs. After dumping the Davis Vipers 40-20 at home, they were beaten by the eventual AA Champion, Logan, 17-14 to end their season.

Then, when that AA Champion Logan and the AAA playoff qualifier, Idaho Falls, both opted down to the AA for 2009, the Bulldawgs did not hesitate to step up and claim a spot back in the RMFL elite… again.  Just like 1998, they are again one of the classiest and best run organizations in the RMFL.

 

The 2010 season though wasn't so kind as the Bulldawgs suffered through 1-7 campaign with the only victory coming against the expansion Upper Valley Vikings.
