If you don't think Capital City Fury is the best semi-pro football team on the west coast, then you'll have to talk to these group of men individually.  Then you're going to have to talk to the last few teams that played against them.  They're so good, they're moving up the charts...fast.  At the moment, the team is expecting to compete in a Minor League Football Report National Championship game in Las Vegas, NV on December 2, 2017.

From the research that I've done so far, I see Fury with a few options to go from here.  But I may be wrong.  Option #1 is to play in Las Vegas on December 2, 2017 in Minor Football League Reports National Championship game.  Then there's option #2 which will feature another National Championship weekend in DeLand, Florida by the United States Football Association in January.  They feature more teams from the east coast.  There will be more information posted on Fury's team Facebook, Twitter and the website as they become available.

 The top 25 teams are all very interesting.  We won't go through the entire list, but we'll definitely take a look at the two teams that are currently ranked higher than Capital City Fury who ranks at #3 in the nation.

#2 Colorado Greyhawks

cache_4223095036.jpg

 

Last year's Champions were the Colorado Greyhawks who are actually ranked #2 in this year's national polling by Minor League Football Report.  The team's hometown is in Denver, Colorado and are a part of the Colorado Football Conference.  They are led by Owner/Head Coach Rashad Ray.  They were founded in 2014 and have laid a strong foundation with a 48-2 record, 3 conference titles, 1 state title and 1 national title.  The team is lead by Bobby Purify, who is the second all-time leading rusher for the University of Colorado.  Pufiy was also a former member of the San Francisco 49ers.  Greyhawks are currently riding a 22-game winning streak.

The undisputed leader of the defense for the Greyhawks has been middle linebacker Jimmy Provost. He’s the heart and soul of the Defense. He is known as the big hitter, always looking to force turnovers, fumbles and whatever that keeps him hype.  He's usually the first defensive player to hit or play as an assist in tackle.   Receivers fear routes which cross the middle field when he's in the game.  Defensive Back Jo Jo Wilkerson, who plays both Safety and Cornerback for the Greyhawks, leads the team with nine interceptions. Joining him in the secondary is a familiar name in former Colorado Buffalo star Running Back Bobby Purify.

Since their inaugural season in 2014, the Greyhawks have sought out competitive non-league games and this year was no different. To start off this season, the Greyhawks beat the defending Midwest Football Alliance Champions, Kansas City Bulldogs 28-6 to follow up a 28-0 win over the 2016 undefeated Texas United Football Association Champions, the Texas Colts in December.

In Colorado Football Conference play, the Greyhawks have pretty much rolled very much like Fury. They did have a slow start against the Northern Colorado Nightmare and led just 8-0 at halftime. They finished the game with a 30-0 win.  One of their secrets to a winning record is to rely on consistency.  Championships are won and lost in the trenches, which this team battles out their every game.  A team doesn’t win 96 percent of games just from talent and discipline alone. It also takes preparation for each game and a level headed approach to not overlook any game along the way.

IMG_4719.jpg

Based on their reputation, the Greyhawks are always a coveted team, and are targeted to play in various “national championship” bowl games. This year, though, their plans aren’t as certain.  “As far as Vegas, for the money we spent the last two years and the service we got, the Greyhawks won’t be going to that game unless they change things,” Ray said.  “Our goal right now is to play in a national game on the East Coast or in Florida.”  It might be something Fury's Front Office want to consider to play in the a national championship game.

 #1 Oklahoma Thunder

20617207_1810158549002264_4893084208490261677_o.jpg

The Thunder is a team from Tulsa, Oklahoma.  They too are on a winning streak which have been on-going for the past 2 years.  On September 3, 2017 they competed against the Chattanooga Eagles in the Gridiron Developent Football League Championship game in Chattanooga, Tennessee called Gridiron Bowl VIII.  Oklahoma Thunder won the game 51 - 12.  From watching the youtube video of the Gridiron Bowl VIII, they looked very strong and very similar to Fury.  That would definitely be a game to watch the 2 teams battle each other on the field.

Based on their well-decorated history, the Thunder are never lacking in motivation.  In 2017 they had more to play for than just a back to back league title.  They lost about 5 players/coaches this past year.  Notably, Joey Crawford, who was a former team captain and Linebacker.  A stud on the team who's life ended by cancer.  The last time he played fro the Thunder was on the 2013 championship team.  A few days later, the team lost their first head coach Bruce Madden, who played a vital part in their first 3 national championships.

20645166_1810157459002373_6589856513754115816_o.jpg

Offensively, the Thunder are led by four-time Player of the Year and former Oklahoma State Cowboy Prentiss Elliott. An explosive wide receiver that can play the inside or outside at about 6-foot-1, 205 pounds. He easily runs a 4.3 40-yard dash and he can jump out of the gym. He can make big plays on special teams, wide receivers, punt returns, kickoff, whatever. He’s not scared to hit either.

 

 

He’s the main go-to guy. When he’s hot, it’s hard to stop him. He opens the way up for Trae Johnson, former Tulsa All-American. This is his fifth year with the Thunder. He’s explosive and knows how to get open, he can jump out of the gym.

20643508_1810156312335821_5734509157515940366_o.jpg

Although the Thunder will have to make up the production lost from the departure of wide receiver and return specialist Ryan Gallimore, former Oklahoma State Wide Receiver Brandon Sheperd and former arena standout Curtis Tucker will help shore things up to round out the receiving corps.  Last year’s Oklahoma Thunder Running Back of the Year Kenny Sessions will split carries with Carlos Velasquez on the ground to balance out the offensive attack.

Defensively, veteran Linebacker B.J. Hodshire leads the charge for the Thunder. He’s been with the team probably about eight years of the 10. He’s a big body, 6-4, 6-5, maybe 240 pounds. He’s slimmed down and got a little bit faster and cut up. He leads the defense, he understands the back end, the front end and everything.  Up front, long, lanker pass rusher Collrett Boyd looks to lead the Defensive Line from the end position and bring the pressure to opposing Offenses.  In the secondary, Cornerback Deion Ruble makes plays, even some that go the distance. He runs a 4.2 40 and he can run with anybody.

 

 

After watching a little bit of the Oklahoma and Colorado play their respected championship games on Youtube, I think Fury can easily be the #1 out of those top 3 teams in the nation.  No joke.  When I saw Colorado Greyhawks play, I thought they looked exactly like Fury.  Then I watched Thunder play, and I thought the exact same thing.  They look just like Fury on field.  There's a certain type of look as a fan when you watch a team interact with each other on the field.  The professionalism, athleticism and confidence that 10 pounds of pads and a helmet cannot hide.  That is what I saw in those 3 teams.  There is one final note that I'd like to mention and hopefully someone takes it into consideration.  The Greyhawk's Team Owner and Head Coach had a point of concern as they've been there for the past 2 years.

“As far as Vegas, for the money we spent the last two years and the service we got, the Greyhawks won’t be going to that game unless they change things,” Ray said.  “Our goal right now is to play in a national game on the East Coast or in Florida.”

Regardless of the reason(s) of the uncertainty, I hope that the folks at Minor League Football Reports make some changes.  But there is one thing that I do know for certain.  It would be one hell of a battle to watch 2 of those 3 teams to play for some type of national championship title.  I'll be traveling from Sacramento, so I’d rather go to Vegas than Florida.
