Flo Tanner adopted the Grizzlies moniker following the folding of the Washington County Grizzlies when Dr. Nash sold the team gear to the upstart Bellevue Express.

 

The Oregon City Steelheads had folded as well, which helped the team blend the best of the Steelheads with the best of the previous Washington County Grizzlies under one banner but it was not enough to ascend the ladder in the difficult NFA.

 

Melvin Barkum led the league in passing through the first 4 games compiling 29 completions on 53 passes for 447 yards and 4 TD's.

 

Keith Bassham booted a then-record 57 yard field goal in blowing out the Seattle Cavaliers.

 

The Clark County-based operation lasted only one season in the newly formed NFA before calling it quits.
