In 1994, frustrated with the non-competitiveness of the Everett Tramps, Tom Fischer and his father Wes, built the Sky Valley Vikings based out of Sultan, WA.  The original uniforms were from the Cascade Eagles, a one-year venture in the NWFL during the 1993 season. 

 

The 1997 season saw a name change to the Snohomish County Vikings which Wes and Debbie Fischer would cultivate into a region-wide organization known for numerous community events and charitable activities.

 

The Vikings finally broke through the playoff barrier in 1998 backing into a spot in the Pacific Football League - North playoffs on the heels of a 3-game skid.  Wes would be named Coach of the Year following the first round exit.

 

Fischer again was tabbed Coach of the Year in 1999 when the Vikings steamrolled into the playoffs with a 9-1 record, only to come up just short in the NWFL Championship game losing 36-24 to the Puget Sound Jets.  QB Tom Nakane earned NWFL Offensive MVP for 1999.  1999 would prove to be the best season in franchise history and the only 10-win season for the Vikings.

 

Fischer would again earn Coach of the Year honors in 2006 when he shared the honor with Jaguars coach Jeff Scott.  Place kicker Larry Moody would earn NWFL Special Teams MVP.

 

The Vikings would make their first playoff appearance since 1999 when they earned a spot in the 2007 NWFL Playoffs, but were dispatched rudely by the eventual runner-up Oregon Thunderbolts 51-6.

 

In 2008 the NWFL had declined to the point where the Vikings joined the upstart Professional Development Football League along with the Oregon Thunderbolts and two new teams, the Tacoma Cobras and Bellingham Blitz for the 2009 season. 

 

The Vikings struggled for 8 months to a 4-9 record and dropped out of the PDFL for 2010.  Starting the season off 2-2 including a win over the PDFL's Thunderbolts, Snohomish canceled a game with Tacoma when word leaked out that the Cobras were in fact paying some players or providing extra benefits, an NCAA violation that could strip eligibility from any players on the Vikings roster looking at college as a future.

 

The NWFL decided to have a final game between the Bengals and Vikings and winner would be crowned Champion of the 3-team league and the Vikings dispatched Pierce County for the third time of the season to finish 6-3 and give Wes Fischer his first Championship in franchise history.
