World Bowl XLIV (44) - Everything Thread

Postby Ranoria » Mon May 02, 2022 5:43 pm

World Bowl XLIV – Ranoria and South Newlandia

Welcome to World Bowl 44! 32 teams enter this tournament, co-operatively hosted by Ranoria and South Newlandia, in search of the next team to lift the trophy for the biggest gridiron tournament in the multiverse. Do note that this is American Football (usually referenced here as “gridiron”, as “America” is not a thing every country on NSS acknowledges), which means this tournament largely follows NFL rules, with the only major exception being the use of IFAF/NCAA overtime rules.

Format:

The 32 teams will be organised in 8 groups of 4. First, each team will play each other team in their group once home and once away, before a final matchup on neutral ground in South Newlandia or Ranoria. After a total of nine games in the group stage, the top two teams in each group will advance to the Round of 16, still in South Newlandia and Ranoria. From there, a single-elimination knockout bracket will be played, with teams remaining in the nation they were already in for the final round robin.
The relevant tie-breakers are, in order: 1) Group Placement (Seeding only) 2) Wins 3) H2H result 4) H2H point differential 5) Point differential 6) IC coinflip (scorinated playoff game in lieu of rank).
If a tie between multiple teams must be broken and one team wins the tiebreaker at any stage, while the remaining teams are still tied, the tiebreakers start at the top of the list again to break the tie between the remaining teams. Two teams may only play against a team they already played in the group stage starting from the quarterfinals. There also will be no Third-Place Playoff, with both losing semifinalists being declared joint 3rd place.

Overview:
Ranoria is, in general, a cold-weathered and conservatively minded nation. Police force is available but with extremely low crime rates often is employed more as civil assistants, and will be available to any tourists in need of a helping hand. The areas around most stadiums will feature some measure of urban development and plenty of opportunities for a community viewing the game in bars, outdoors, or otherwise, and most stadiums will have extensive tailgating parties to attend, if that's your thing.

Visitors should keep in mind that while marijuana and alcohol are legal, tobacco and other recreational drugs are not. Not to worry, most offenses regarding such substances will result in nothing more than a slap on the wrist - local police have no desire to get mixed up in international scandal.

Cold Stadiums:
Alreagan II Memorial Arena
Yellowknife, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Yellowknife Wraiths
Capacity: 80,000
Construction: 1960, Partial Roof

This is the oldest stadium in use by the Ranorian Football League. Named after Willsmark Alreagan II, who started mandatory education through high school in Ranoria despite severe backlash, the stadium has seen continuous usage for 70 years now. The partial roof was added 15 years ago to protect fans from direct weather like snowfall, but to see this field as anything but snow-covered would be an anomaly.

Royalty Field
Rouyoutte, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Rouyoutte Colts
Capacity: 63,707
Construction: 1996, Open-Air

Ranoria's never had any royalty per say, but Rouyoutte's upper-class, who funded the stadium 34 years ago now, like to carry themselves that way. The city at the foot of the mountains gets a ton of snow fall throughout the year due to its location - which is near plenty of ski resorts. We're sure the field will be plowed prior to pre-game warmups, but expect to be playing in a winter wonderland. The seating behind the end zones is fashioned somewhat like a castle, and Rouyoutte's Colt players often climb the "ladders" fashioned into the walls after scoring, and more often than their coaches would like, snag a beer from the fans. Opposing players have tried this as well, but are often thrown off the "walls." Are any foreigners brave enough to give it a shot?

Fermete Stadium
Fermete, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Fermete Marauders
Capacity: 64,070
Constructon: 1998, Open-Air

Like Rouyoutte, Fermete is a city rich in tradition with an extremely wealthy upper class who funded the stadium. Both stadiums have undergone several renovations since construction. Also like Rouyoutte, expect snowfall. Bring your handwarmers! Fermete is on the northern border of Ranoria and its "colony", who's citizens have recently expressed displeasure in response to the conduct of certain gold-mining operations. There may be protestors in the city, but nothing violent has broken out.

Salvation Arena
Herot, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Herot Paladins
Capacity: 69,757
Construction: 2008, Dome

Located in Herot, one of the most religious regions of the country, Salvation Arena's domed environment will shelter you from the harsh weather just beyond its walls. It's older than some of the other venues here, but the stadium board go above and beyond with presentation here. Smoke, lights, music, halftime skits - they'll make sure to put on a show, regardless of how competitive the game is. Undeniably the best cheer team in the Ranorian Football League.

Mount Reinhold Stadium
Eglise, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Eglise Mountaineers
Capacity: 59,700
Contruction: 2009, Partial-Roof

Eglise, like Rouyoutte, is near mountains. It's far above sea level, and the stadium is located in the outskirts of the city itself, just a bit higher up on the ruins of what used to be a castle-esque fort. Air is going to be approximately 20% thinner up here, so gameplan substitutions properly. The field will likely be covered in snow, but an innovative partial roof design will at least shield those in attendance from the more direct elements. It's still gonna be cold, mind you. Parts of the old Fort Reinhold are still in use in the stadium structure, other parts have been replaced with similar kind and quality due to deterioration. If you wanted to get into the Ship of Theseus problem, it could be argued that Mount Reinhold Stadium is Fort Reinhold.

Dietrich Stadium
Richardson, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Richardson Fenrirs, Richardson University Governors
Capacity: 94,750
Construction: 2018, Open-Air

In the nation's capitol lies the second largest stadium in the country, and it's notable for also hosting the Richardson University Governors, who by participating in NSCF 26 became the nation's first foray into international sports. Those who are familiar with that NSCF know as well as anyone that, filled to standing-room only, Dietrch's true capacity swells to a throng much greater than its listed value. It's cold, but between a couple of the most tradition-rich college and pro teams in the nation, expect a passionate gridiron fanbase to show up in full strength.

Dynamo Park
Dietrich, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Dietrich Dynamos
Capacity: 70,420
Construction: 2013, Open-Air

Confused yet? Dietrich Stadium is in Richardson, Dynamo Park is in Dietrich. Anyway, this one is home to the Dynamos, who won two of the last four RFL championships. (but also made the playoffs just once in the last two seasons! Go figure). Their enigmatic superstar at quarterback, Deondre Rhine, is the big name here...but you're more likely to find him in Quebec City than Dietrich.

Adelhard Dynamics Dome
Pittsburgh, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Pittsburgh Ironmen
Capacity: 87,300
Construction: 2013, Dome

Home of one of the roughest teams in the RFL, the dome is one of the most luxurious venues you'll find. Seating is comfortable and designed to not be cramped, inspired somewhat by the Superdome that had been completed just a few years prior. Expect excellent presentation and fans who want nothing short of a slugfest.

Karmin-Falce Superdome
Ranoria City, Ranoria
Domestic Teams: Ranoria City Falcons, Ranoria City Silver
Capacity: 121,450
Construction: 2011, Retractable Roof

The Karmin-Falce Superdome is, unofficially, Ranoria's national stadium. With a whopping 121,450 person capacity, relatively luxurious seating and climate control, it is the crown jewel of the nation's sporting venues. A retractable dome allows for ideal conditions, be that for the fans or the home team, if visitors aren't used to a harsh winter - roof will be closed for World Bowl contests.

The surrounding city is thriving with Quebecois-influenced nightlife, restaurants claiming to serve "Banijan" food, as well as other attractions in Ranoria's largest city.

CannabisCorp Field of Green
New Quebec, Ranoria
Domestic Team: New Quebec Fighting Quebecois
Capacity: 68,420
Construction: 2009, Open-Air

Ranoria - part of the Quebecois Commonwealth, of course has rich traditional ties to its mother nation. So "New Quebec" was one of the first cities in Ranoria. It's been surpassed in most population metrics, but it's still there, and with strong ties to Quebec and Shingoryeo, CannabisCorp's presence in the city is strong - so it's had naming rights for the stadium since its construction. Concessions are the most...diverse of any stadia in Ranoria, we'll say, and the stadium often takes on a distinct smell that anyone would recognize once kickoff rolls around. Field is grass but stadium organizers have never disclosed what kind of grass.


Temperate Stadiums:
Adelphia Coliseum
Nashville, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Nashville Sabercats
Capacity: 67,700
Construction: 1999, Open-Air

It's one of the older venues on this list, and one of the smallest, but with Adelphia soon to be replaced in Nashville, it was decided to give this fanbase one last chance to say goodbye to their 31 year old venue. Some have criticized the decision, not wanting to see the stadium's last football game without the Sabercats on the field, but what can you do? Rich in tradition, there's likely going to be halftime ceremonies galore - a bit of extra time to gameplan, perhaps?

RANPAC Coliseum
Indianapolis, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Indianapolis Hogs
Capacity: 77,900
Contruction: 2025, Open-Air

"The House John Garrett Built." This is an open air stadium and one of the newest in the country, with the Krauts' very own Farmboy at the helm of the Hogs offense. The venue was a massive upgrade over the old Arena, a nice reward for a loyal and long-suffering fanbase. Expect at least a passionate, near-capacity crowd used to an explosive passing attack.

Specter Industries Stadium
Highport, Ranoria
Domestic Team: Highport Hawks
Capacity: 73,950
Construction: 2006, Partial-Roof

Like the one above, this open-air stadium houses one of the strongest teams in the Ranorian Football league. Specter Industries Stadium has gone through two major renovations to this point, both to up the capacity of the stadium and to improve the overall experience. Near the ocean, as Highport is the largest port in the country. A partial roof was added in 2009 to shield fans from harsh weather, and recently the stadium was renovated to improve presentation and expand capacity by about 1,300 in response to the team's recent success with QB Byron Joseph at the helm.

Reinhild Aerodynamics Arena
North Ashialand, Ranoria
Domestic Team: North Ashialand Dreadnaughts
Capacity: 70,400
Construction: 2017, Open-Air

The longtime home of the recently retired Bo Callahan, the Dreadnaughts are one of Ranoria's coastal teams, with the ocean in view of the stadium itself (though far enough off to prevent any structural mishaps). For those who aren't afraid of heights, the wall of the stadium facing the water largely features thick but still transparent glass to get a good view of just that. Stadium almost always has flyovers, with Reinhild supplying a majority of the military's air power and the navy's strong presence in North Ashialand.

In a nutshell
South Newlandia is a small Esportivan island with about four million inhabitants, located east of Super-Llamaland. South Newlandia is known for democracy, elephants, regulated capitalism and environmentalism, and the friendly population, happy to help you out if you run into any problems.

Overview
In general, you can divide South Newlandia into a Southern and a Northern Part, each consisting of five general areas. You can reach a few of those directly with an airplane, via the airports in Elephant Valley, Walstreim and Newport, but for most of the areas, you will have to take an additional ship or train, or a bus. Fortunately for you, public transport is almost free in South Newlandia, while renting a car can be more expensive.

Your stay at the World Bowl
South Newlandia is a very small country. Therefore, expect that for the average fan, getting a hotel room on short notice will be difficult, and tickets will definitely be in short supply. Remember that re-selling tickets for more than the original price is banned in South Newlandia, so if you see someone ripping people off, alert the authorities by dialling or texting 123.
Even if you can’t get a place in the stadiums (tickets will be divided 40%/40% between the two participating nations, with 20% being available to everyone else), that isn’t that big of a deal. In many spots around the country, opportunities to watch the games on a big screen, often outside, with hundreds or thousands of other fans. The atmosphere at those events is often almost as great as being in the stadium, and in many places, it’s completely free of charge.
If you need any help or assistance with anything, feel free to ask the populace for help. South Newlandians are known to be eager to help, as long as you follow a few basic rules, such as not being an embarrassment for everyone and not being a pain on purpose. If you fail to clear this smallest of hurdles, you probably won’t have much luck getting help from the general public, but you can still get help by texting or dialling 321, where people are paid to deal with you. You can use this number to get all kinds of help and get answers to your questions.

Rules and Laws
If you plan to visit South Newlandia, there are a few things you should be aware of beforehand. Laws on imported goods are rather strict, and things you’d expect to not be allowed to take into other countries are usually banned in South Newlandia as well. Examples for this include dead animals, living people unwilling to enter and bombs of any kind. The same regulations will also apply if you go to leave the country again. This makes it impossible, to, say, completely random example, smuggle ivory out of South Newlandia.
Special note should be made of South Newlandian drug laws. While all drugs, and this means all drugs, including alcohol and tobacco; are decriminalized in South Newlandia; this does not mean you are allowed to deal drugs. Selling or giving away drugs for any reason is strictly banned; this includes, again, alcohol and tobacco. However, you are allowed to take any drugs you want to without punishment, and are allowed to own any that are only for your own consumption. You are probably going to be treated like an addicted person though, so people might attempt to get you professional help to fight the addiction they perceive you to have. This is rare; most people are aware that different customs exist in other countries. In short, you are allowed to take any drugs into South Newlandia as long as you can convince officials that you aren’t addicted to them and do not intent to sell them.
Bribing South Newlandian officials is basically impossible; border control is a very well-paid job in South Newlandia. Otherwise, the South Newlandian legal system is similar to the legal systems of most other civilised places; with the exception that jails and prisons have been outlawed a few years ago.

Travel
Getting around inside South Newlandia isn’t a huge problem, it is often more difficult to arrive in the first place. That’s the case with all islands, but South Newlandia has rather few flights and ships exiting and entering, mostly because of environmental regulations. If you do arrive in South Newlandia, you are likely near the coast or even on an island now; your options are Elephant Valley, Newport, Walstreim, Kinjestad or Ineton.
When you arrive, the probably best options are the multiple high-speed trains that can get you almost everywhere in the country fairly quickly. Unless you want to go to a really remote place, you can probably expect your journey to your destination to take two hours at the very most. If you want to connect between two of the big cities, like from Walstreim to Ratzupalfu, you can expect it to be even quicker. If you don’t like trains, for some reason, there are also busses and cars to rent, but the streets aren’t always in perfect condition, and are far less convenient, to be honest.
Flights inland are banned in South Newlandia. If you want to be mobile within a city, you can rent bikes for free, or you can take the underground if you are in a bigger city and the bus if the city is smaller. There are also busses and rental cars in the bigger cities, but unless you really need to, we wouldn’t advise you to use them. The bus is slower than the underground, and the underground gets you pretty much everywhere within a city. Cars can get very inconvenient because they are banned in many areas, and where they aren’t, there are rarely any parking spots. Seriously, don’t try to drive a car in South Newlandia. Most of the citizens don’t either; a lot of them don’t even have a license.

Weather
The climate typically stays the same in South Newlandia throughout most of the year, with moderate winters and warm summers. In the places where games are hosted, temperatures around 15-25°C can be expected, and although it may rain a bit, there are no big storms forecast during the duration of the Tournaments. Weather extremes of all kinds are rare, too; don’t expect any windstorms or floods or anything like that.

Animals
There are some wild animals in South Newlandia, but they will generally don’t disturb you if you don’t disturb them. Basically, just stay on the outlined paths in the forest and don’t do anything to anger animals, and you’ll be fine. Most of South Newlandias wild animals are friendly, like the elephants, for example; in the unlikely event that you meet a bear, probably the most dangerous animal you could meet in South Newlandia, in the woods, you should follow standard bear safety guidelines. In any emergency, you can call or text the number 123 to get immediate help, or the number 321 if you just need less urgent, but still important advice.


Cities and Stadiums


Elephant Valley

General
Elephant Valley, the capital of South Newlandia, makes up about an eighth of the country’s population. The city has relatively few skyscrapers, but is built over a large area instead. The city used to be more industrial, but is mostly focusing on providing entertainment for the rest of the country; most of the biggest media outlets, like the “Elephant Valley Mail” or “South Newlandia One” are having their headquarters here, but there is also a lot of other IT-related industry here. Elephant Valley is relevant for just about every sport.

Sports
Elephant Valley is the centre of South Newlandian sports. They have two elite baseball teams in the Homers and United, and are also the host of most South Newlandian home games in baseball and soccer. Additionally, Gridiron football is bigger nowhere than in Elephant Valley, home of the national team and the NSCF team Elephant Valley University Red Elephants.

Other attractions
Other than sports, Elephant Valley is by all accounts the heart of South Newlandian politics and culture. The South Newlandian government, a common sight to visit, is here, as well as some parts of the administration of the Esportivan Union. Elephant Valley also has multiple large universities, with the Elephant Valley Science Institute and Elephant Valley Sports College next to the aforementioned EVU. Other sights to visit in Elephant Valley include the biggest water park in the nation, as well as a massive statue of an Elephant painted in the colours of South Newlandia.

The people
Like in most of South Newlandia, many inhabitants of Elephant Valley are immigrants either in first, second, or third generation, creating a melting pot of all kinds of different cultures. In recent years, other cities have surpassed the growth rate of Elephant Valley, which has caused a once rapidly shifting city to settle down a bit.

Weather forecast:
Temperature: ~23°C
Chance of rain: medium (~30% on any given day)

Stadiums:

Stadium of Friendship (41,093)
The Stadium of Friendship is by far the biggest stadium in all of South Newlandia. It was, very expensively, built by Valentian Constructions Limited, but it has all the bells and whistles of a modern stadium, including a retractable roof and the best available technology everywhere. It stands just outside the city limits, and is easily reachable using all forms of transport. The Stadium of Friendship also hosted a semifinal during World Cup 89. Due to the nature of this being a park for association football, there may be quirks to the stadium.

Elephant Field (15,400)
Located a bit outside Elephant Valley, this small stadium is the biggest South Newlandia has to offer. Without a roof, it is open to the elements of both wind and rain. Elephant Field is also used for home games of South Newlandia during World Bowls.

EVU Field (7,000)
EVU Field, located close to the Elephant Valley University, serves at the home of the NSCF team Red Elephants, and has been massively upgraded in anticipation of hosting World Bowl games.


New Colk

General
New Colk is located on the Elephant Island only just off of the coast, but already technically in the Strele Channel separating South Newlandia and Tumbra. New Colk, having a population of roughly 40,000, has a large Grearish population. Although many of them have assimilated with the South Newlandians into one, many Grearish influences remain today, and that is making this city extremely special. Because of this, New Colk is also the city with the strongest cricket presence in South Newlandia.

Sports
The Kinetik Islanders used to take the SNSL by storm, but since then, it has been a bit quieter around sports in New Colk. Recent developments suggest they’re looking to lure a baseball team into the city; and teams from here dominate the small cricket league of South Newlandia.

Other attractions
As mentioned earlier, New Colk has many Grearish influences. This includes rare wildlife, such as the yellow-billed kingfisher and Grearish harrier, as well as, in extremely rare circumstances, black dolphins being sighted from the Island. Other than that, Grearish support, including through the energy drink company ‘Kinetik’, has given the city a massive boost. Among the host cities, New Colk also has the nicest beaches to visit; like every South Newlandian beach, they are subject to strong environmental regulations.

The people
Graerish folks are some of the nicest people you could ever meet, and that is reflected in New Colk.

Weather forecast:
Temperature: ~25°C
Chance of rain: medium-high (~40% on any given day)

Stadium:

Kinetik Stadium (16,000)
Kinetik Stadium, sponsored by Kinetik, has also hosted CE28 games. Kinetik built a top-notch modern stadium with everything you could possibly want. It is very close to the sea, so this stadium always looks fantastic on photos. For WC89, they upped the seat count once again. Due to the nature of this being a park for association football, there may be quirks to the stadium.


Newport

General
Newport is located on the East coast of South Newlandia, and is the second-biggest city of the country at about 330,000 citizens. It used to be a very industrial city, named after the port that is the biggest in the country today. If anything is getting shipped to South Newlandia, odds are, it arrives in Newport first. In recent years, Newport has been the fastest growing city in the country, as job prospects have quickly attracted people from around South Newlandia and the multiverse.

Sports
Newport has always been an important city for South Newlandian sports. The city has a strong baseball presence, with the Newport Owls and Newport Dolphins in Llamaphant Pro Baseball, and plays a role in most other sports.

Other attractions
Newport has basically everything you’d expect a city to have, including food from around the multiverse, malls, and everything else. Two of the most well-known attractions of Newport are the East-Newport minigolf course, considered the best in the country, and suitable for all ages and skill levels; and the Newport Cineplex, one of the biggest cinemas in the nation, featuring all the currently relevant movies and blockbusters. If you’re more interested in culture, you can visit the highest court of law here, or the Newport College for International Relations, or the Newport Law School, or the Newport Politics Institute…

The people
The citizens of Newport are relatively normal for being South Newlandian, friendly, and commonly welcoming toward foreigners. Of course, many citizens of Newport are immigrants themselves, moving to South Newlandia for job prospects or whatever else. They do have a reputation for being a little bit less open than South Newlandians from other places, but that’s mostly a myth.

Weather forecast:
Temperature: ~18°C
Chance of rain: medium-low (~20% on any given day)

Stadiums:

Jecken Arena (16,250)
Jecken Arena, sponsored by the Jeckish chicken brand, has previously hosted a CE Semifinal, and remains one of the biggest stadiums in South Newlandia. Jecken had purchased the naming rights for many years in advance. Jecken Arena has also hosted games during World Cup 89. Due to the nature of this being a park for association football, there may be quirks to the stadium.

EsportivArena (14,000)
The EsportivArena was specifically built for World Cup 89. In honour of the Esportivan Union, South Newlandia represents the region with this stadium. It’s also just about as modern as it can get. Due to the nature of this being a park for association football, there may be quirks to the stadium.


Ratzupalfu

General
Ratzupalfu, with a population of 175,000, located near the center of South Newlandia, was always a city trying to work with nature instead of against it, and it works out fairly well for them. The city is surrounded by jungle, with wild animals often not far away, and it will be your best bet if you want to see wild Elephants. Ratzupalfu is located at the edge of the South Newlandian jungle, encompassing most of the central portion of South Newlandia.

Sports
The Ratzupalfu Rhinos used to be a strong South Newlandian soccer team, and although they lost their baseball team due to the reduction through Llamaphant Pro Baseball, they regained new life with the Ratzupalfu University of Nature Egrets playing in NS College Football. On top of that, Ratzupalfu is the team usually on top in South Newlandian basketball as well.

Other attractions
Other attractions, beside the jungle and the animals, include the aforementioned Ratzupalfu University of Nature, as well as many sources of information about South Newlandian wildlife, including the two biggest museums of South Newlandia.

The people
People from Ratzupalfu are more nature- and animal loving than any other in South Newlandia, and are going to tell you about their pets, and want to know about yours. People from here are willing to work together with nature, giving back more than they take.

Weather forecast:
Temperature: ~25°C
Chance of rain: very high (~70% on any given day)

Stadium:

Jungledrom (2,186)
The Jungledrom is the home of the NSCF team of the Ratzupalfu University of Nature, home of the Egrets. It is wide open to the elements, which can make passing difficult; which often can lead to the ground game shining here. And no, the seat count is not a typo.


Walstreim

General
Walstreim is located on the very South coast of South Newlandia. You probably recognise the name from the club team, but more on that in a bit. Walstreim, one of the drier cities in the nation, has been very industrial in the past, and is widely considered to be the home of South Newlandin football. Having more than 200,000 people, it is the third-biggest city in South Newlandia, behind Elephant Valley and Newport, and that’s largely what it is thought of. Most of the important stuff is in one of those two nations, but there are many important things here as well.

Sports
The Walstreim Lions, home of South Newlandian sports, won the last four SNSL titles, and took the footballing multiverse for a ride when they qualified for the Ro16 of the Champions League on the first venture of South Newlandia into domestic sports. Their youth team later won the Rising Stars Cup, and the Lions also have won a CEdC. There’s also a good Llamaphant Pro Baseball team in Walstreim, the Stingrays. Despite typically being the game of the North, baseball is surprisingly popular down here.

Other attractions
Walstreim, although not the most interesting city, still has a couple of interesting things to visit, such as the largest mall in South Newlandia and a very interesting museum about marine life, or Walstreim Business University.

The people
People from here are honestly rather boring until you get to know them better, which is usually worth it. Also, people are crazy about football here.

Weather forecast:
Temperature: ~25°C
Chance of rain: low (~10% on any given day)

Stadium:

Walstreim Park (15,000)
Walstreim Park is usually a stadium for association football, formerly known as Walstreim City Stadium, and has been the stadium where the Lions fought their CL run. Since then, the stadium has been modernized for World Cup 89, and is regarded as the stadium with the most comfortable seats. Due to the nature of this being a park for association football, there may be quirks to the stadium.

Head Coach Raul Nieler

Overall World Bowl Record: 72-25-1
Group Stage: 63-20-1
Knockout Stage: 9-5
Worst Finish: World Bowl XXXII: 3-5
Best Finish: World Bowl XLII: 7-1 (Champions)

Captains:
Offense: John Garrett, Johnny Farmer
Defense: Ross Monarch, Judas Wolfson

Banija: 3-1
Delaclava: 2-0
Saint Kanye: 2-0
Drawkland: 1-1


The Ranorian Krauts are Ranoria's prestigious national team, funded by the Ranorian Football League and filled with players participating in professional domestic play both at home and abroad. The Krauts, now back-to-back world champions, have the funds and means to field a team loaded with playmakers on both sides of the ball.

Coming two straight titles now, the goal this season is the same as ever: Win a championship. After retaining their throne in the last World Bowl, Raul Nieler has certainly established himself as the long-term head coach of this organization and a household name. Between his contribution and a roster including several players who can claim to be among the best in the world at their position, the Krauts are certainly the favorites to win it all - again. And notably, for the first time - they're ready if John "Farmboy" Garrett goes down. With former Northern Moravica star Vallienté Wagner-Young manning the backup quarterback position, the Krauts have a more than capable heir-apparent when their legend decides to step away.

There's a bit of internal conflict in the club due to some young names unseating long-established starters, with Gideon Kearse and Abram Fairbanks - neither of whom have taken a snap of professional ball - winning the starting defensive end jobs in training camp over veterans Zach Skinner and Angelo Gordon. Both Skinner and Gordon have hall-of-fame resumes with Gordon in particular being one of the best players in RFL history and having been a defensive captain in three consecutive World Bowls. Overall, the team is running out 8 new starters - 5 on defense and 3 on offense. Will the upheaval disrupt a team that is widely considered the frontrunner to take home the gold?



Stadium Info
The Karmin-Falce Superdome
Ranoria City, Ranoria


Image

Capacity: 121,450

The Karmin-Falce Superdome is, unofficially, Ranoria's national stadium. With a whopping 121,450 person capacity, relatively luxurious seating and climate control, it is the crown jewel of the nation's sporting venues. A retractable dome allows for ideal conditions, be that for the fans or the home team, if visitors aren't used to a harsh winter.

The surrounding city is thriving with Quebecois-influenced nightlife, restaurants claiming to serve "Banijan" food, as well as other attractions in Ranoria's largest city. Visitors should keep in mind that while marijuana and alcohol are legal, tobacco and other recreational drugs are not. Not to worry, most offenses regarding such substances will result in nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

Overall - it's worth planning a weekend getaway rather than just a trip to the big game, but either way you'll leave satisfied!

Offense

Quarterback: John "Farmboy" Garrett
Number: 10
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 232
Age: 33

Image
John Garrett, Indianapolis Hogs Quarterback

Now with two World Bowl titles and coming off the best passing season in Ranorian history by some margin, John Garrett is arguably the best quarterback in the world. Garrett is capable of making every throw in the book from seemingly every angle available. He has a very strong - if not absolute top notch - arm, but his calling card is his knowledge of the defense and accuracy to take advantage of it. Garrett is an absolute film nut and has been known to know the opposing defense better than his coaching staff. Expect the four time MVP to be aggressive and rarely turn the ball over while being more than able to take advantage of a defense that shows him the same look twice. Complete mastery of the playbook, more than willing to check into any play that personnel allows or change any route he deems necessary.

If Garrett has any weakness, it's his injury history. Between back problems in college, three shoulder injuries between the two joints as a pro, and other problems, he has a hard time staying upright, and it can result in significantly higher turnover numbers from him, as seen in World Bowl 41 and domestically from 2024 to 2026. One could also point out that he has absolute faith in his tight end, Johnny Farmer, which could perhaps be taken advantage of. Though between the talent of and the chemistry these two share...we doubt it.

Backing up Garrett is none other than former #1 recruit Vallienté Wagner-Young. Wagner-Young led Northern Moravica to a pair of NSCF championship appearances in his college tenure and has all the talent in the world at his disposal. Farmboy has the job locked down for as long as he wants it - but is Wagner-Young his heir-apparent?


Halfback: Vice Jackson III
Number: 31
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 238
Age: 29
Jackson III was a beast for the Richardson University Governors, and he's been a top back in Ranoria. He's been the World Bowl starter since before he was drafted, and has an OPOY award to go along with over career 16,000 scrimmage yards. His calling card - of course - is his size, but don't be deceived. He's quick enough to make cuts running routes and has soft hands, making him a true threat in the passing game who can be lethal in space. He's at the end of his prime now...but make no mistake, it is still his prime.

Tends to wade through traffic when possible at the line of scrimmage and favors a nasty stiff arm once he gets into open space. High top speed but takes a minute to get there. When he needs a break, expect the younger Apollo Esther to spell him on early downs and Eric van Geel to back him up on passing downs.


Tight End: Johnny Farmer
Number: 82
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 255
Age: 33
Image
Dietrich Dynamos Tight End Johnny Farmer practicing in the offseason

It's not a stretch to say that the Krauts are fielding the best tight end in the world. NSCF 17's Most Outstanding Player can do it all from the tight end position. Has the capacity to stonewall even star pass rushers from time to time and will rarely get badly beaten. On a double team? He may as well be a sixth lineman, size aside.

Of course, that's not why he gets paid - this guy is Ranoria's primary weapon in the passing game. Farmer is an exemplary route runner, with most of his route tree appear identical through a few steps and can quickly create separation out of the break with his speed. If he can't do that, no problem, between standing at 6'5" and being able to jump out of the gym, he's got the jump ball covered and has strong hands to make sure to bring it down. And if he catches the ball in space, good luck bringing him down. Hell, if the team wasn't so loaded at the defensive end spots he'd probably see a few snaps on that side of the ball.

Overall, there is no true weakness to the 8 time first team all-pro's game. One player can't do it all, and there will always be teams that can slow down or even eliminate one guy, but don't expect John Garrett's teammate from middle school until present - and a 2x RFL champion to boot - to be an easy one to bring down. He's regressed ever so slightly from his peak, but don't expect this all-time talent to let it show.


Wide Receiver 1: Khalil Hauptmann
Number: 10
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 220 lb
Age: 26
The prodigal son returns! Hauptmann played at Loyola-Istria in college and elected to stay in Banija to pursue a professional career there. Fortunately, he's taken to lending his services to the World Bowl team, and based on the production, he's the best wideout the team's ever fielded. The 6'5" freakshow provides more than enough matchup issues on his own, and if teams leave him one-on-one to eliminate the aforementioned tight end. . . good luck there. He's a second superstar receiving threat on this offense and has won the World Bowl in each season he's played with the Krauts.


Wide Receiver 2: Jeremiah Fletcher
Number: 11
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 215
Age: 23
The #5 WR prospect in Ranoria coming out of high school, he led a successful career after signing with Ranoria State University, serving as a three year starter there as a prolific member of one of the nation's premier air raid squads, earning first-team All-Ranoria honors as a junior. Luckily for him, he's currently employed by John Garrett's Indianapolis Hogs after being taken with the 2nd to last pick of the first round, and has been electric so far in his career. Fletcher is a true WR1 and has plenty of chemistry with Farmboy, but expect him to take a more complementary role with Hauptmann opposite him.


Wide Receiver 3: Isaak Rodriguez
Number: 19
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 200
Age: 22
After a prolific career at Akers State of Northwest Kalactin, Rodriguez will be supplanting Calvin Hale as the third man up in this offense. He's significantly more talented, with speed to burn and good size - he was a star track runner in high school, and that's translated well to a sub-4.4 second 40 yard dash time. While all of the starting receivers on this offense can take the top off of an offense, he's the one that fills that role here. Rodriguez is a diva who demands the ball, but with John Garrett at the helm and Raul Nieler manning up the head coach spot, he respects the organization enough to dial it back. Can break tackles, especially from smaller DBs, due to leg drive he's gained from all that track running.


Left Tackle: Tyler Williams
Number: 65
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 320 lb
Age: 35
Old reliable still has good football left in him. Williams knows he's likely in the twilight of his career, and is hoping to help secure Ranoria's third World Bowl championship while his body is still cooperating. It's likely he'll miss some time due to injuries or be rested early in blowouts until the playoffs come around. Should he go down, Vince Vermillion would likely slide in at left tackle and Eric Modin would be bumped up to the starter on the right.


Left Guard: "JT" Jack Trenton Everhart
Number: 78
Height: 6'8"
Weight: 340
Age: 24
Everhart is an absolute mauler at guard who's employed by the QFL. After spending his collegiate years playing for St. Croix, he grew fond of Quebec and Shingoryeo. He allowed one sack in his high school career and played plenty of elite teams for the Bleu et Blanc in the spotlight of the sport. He also played high school ball in Ranoria City, so he's going to be right at home in the Superdome. One of two first-year starters for this team on the offensive line along with Jacob Silva.


Center: Philippe Maxine
Number: 72
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 330
Age: 32
Maxine's 5th World Bowl appearance. Maxine was one of a few big signings once the National Team started raking in dollars to pay more quality players across the board. Solid center who can call protections if necessary, though John Garrett, of course, handles those duties. Despite his size, footwork in the run game is perhaps a bit sub par. Relies on getting his hands on his man.


Right Guard: Jacob Silva
Number: 66
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 325
Age: 23
Replacing longtime starter Morris Bron is Silva. He's the second change to this offensive line, which may hurt its chemistry, but the kid is two years into his domestic career and already has an All-Pro nod under his belt. As the more athletic of the two guards, he's more likely to be used as a pulling lineman. Silva's been a tone setter since high school and is more than willing to be that nasty man in the middle of the fight. Silva and Everhart bring a nasty edge to an otherwise veteran offensive line.


Right Tackle: Vince Vermillion
Number: 70
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 330
Age: 28
Some may recognize him from his days at Cold Hill, Rhine's blindside protector for four seasons has transitioned nicely into the pros. Much more effective at taking on big power rushers than a speedster, although he's still adept enough to give the latter all they want. Vermillion is a 3x All-Star in the Ranorian Football League.


Defense

Left Defensive End: Abram Fairbanks
Number: 54
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 230
Age: 22
Image
Abram Fairbanks during a game for his alma mater, the University of Loyola-Istria

Fairbanks is the center of some controversy for this team, starting over Ranorian legend Angelo Gordon. Gordon is a three time defensive player of the year, has won three RFL championships in five appearances, and was a monstrosity off the edge of both of Ranoria's championship runs who's sniffing at the RFL career sack record.

However, after a neck injury in 2027, he's slowed considerably. Fairbanks, meanwhile, was a pro-ready prospect a year before he graduated, and is a top-notch burner off the edge. Having yet to take a professional snap, he's a bit light for his position. Don't think that means he can't stop the run though, this guy is a game-breaker in every sense of the word.


Right Defensive End: Gideon Kearse
Number: 99
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 275
Age: 21
Image
Gideon Kearse during his tenure as a Richardson University Governor

And the other controversial pick. Skinner didn't have quite Gordon's resume, with one DPOY to his name and one championship on two appearances, but he's still been instrumental for the Krauts defense. That said, at 33, his time is coming sooner rather than later. Gideon Kearse is arguably the best defensive end prospect Ranoria's ever seen, a mauler of a power-rusher with no true weaknesses after being fine-tuned by Richardson University's coaching staff - with his hall-of-fame father as the position coach and the guiding hand of Chromatik head coach Kasen Harrowitz.

The Krauts' defensive coordinator, Richard Steinheil, coached for Richardson in Kearse's freshman and sophomore seasons, and is familiar with maximizing the young man's talent, as shown with a career-high and NSCF leading 17 sacks during his sophomore year. World Bowl 44 will be the first time Kearse takes the field as a professional - can he continue to dominate against the best competition the world has to offer?


Nose Tackle: Spencer Crutchfield
Number: 91
Height: 6'7"
Weight: 325
Age: 30
A big time playmaker at Richardson University, Spencer Crutchfield has adopted more of a "plug the run" role in the pros, but he is still more than capable of flashing his old big play ability even at this level. Crutchfield's a veteran now, but don't expect any regression in this monster's game quite yet.


Defensive Tackle: Gudbrand Taurus
Number: 90
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 300
Age: 26
Gudbrand Taurus is freakishly strong, more so than his size would leave one to believe. A 2x All Star as a pro and 1x All-Ranorian in college, he's a big man who can generate pressure and cause losses in the run game. Professional level strongman who's got more power even than his large size indicates.


Right Outside Linebacker: Sean Morgan-Horne
Number: 45
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 225
Age: 27
After gracing Banijan fans with an illustrious college career, Sean Morgan-Horne is coming back home. He's become the centerpiece on defense for the Dietrich Dynamos, helping the team to back-to-back championship victories in 2027 and 2028. His time with Northern Moravica's Cougars more than shored up any issues he had with tackling or discipline, and he's developed into one hell of a linebacker. Best coverage backer of this trio, but of course the the grizzled veteran leader of this defense isn't moving off his spot quite yet.


Inside Linebacker: Ross Monarch
Number: 55
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 253
Age: 35

Image
Dreadnaughts Linebacker Ross Monarch in a game during World Bowl 41

Richardson University's program record holder for career tackles, the RFL record holder for career tackles(1,601), Monarch has given everything you can ask for in his career. In his rookie year, he handled the defensive side of the ball for the Memphis Steamers, helping second-year pro QB Derek McNair to win the team's first ever championship, and they won a second in 2020 before Monarch signed with the North Ashialand Dreadnaughts and QB Bo Callahan in free agency. With North Ashialand, he won a third title in 2021 and a defensive player of the year in 2023. And of course, he was the point man for our World Bowl 42 and 43 championship defenses.

That said, Ross Monarch retired from domestic play after 2029 - where he missed games due to injury for the first time in his storied career - to heal up for one last World Bowl run. His Dreadnaughts sank to 6-10 in his absence...does he have eleven to fourteen games left in him to bring home on more title?


Left Outside Linebacker: Django Reeves
Number:
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 225
Age: 25
Taking over for long-time starter Johnson Ellis, Reeves is a hybrid linebacker who can come down to rush the passer or play off ball. Like many players on this defense, he's a hit-first player who's not afraid to risk more penalties to make offenses think twice about coming his way. Average coverage player, but has a lot of twitch and straight-line speed to make up for catches he surrenders. He's an elite athlete who should be a significant upgrade over Ellis - hopefully that makes up for Monarch's losing a step. In 2 pro seasons, he's racked up 125 tackles and 13 sacks.


Cornerback 1: Darnell Sleight
Number: 29
Height: 6'
Weight: 210
Age: 31
Coming off a torn ACL prior to World Bowl 41, Sleight returned to near his level of play in World Bowl 39, which saw him pitch catch shutouts for 6 straight games. As an elite corner, expect him to travel with the opposition's best wideout. The team's gameplan relies on Sleight to deny targets to top receivers, allowing more favorable matchups to get targets for the rest of the ballhawks in the secondary.

Likely his last season of top-notch play at 31 years old.



Cornerback 2: Jabyess Hawkins
Number: 20
Height: 6'
Weight: 200
Age: 27
Stepping in for 3 cycle starter now in Cameron Barborosa, Hawkins is younger and much faster. Barborosa was a true ball-hawking corner, a role Hawkins fills as well, but Barborosa was slow, running mid-4.5 at his combine, and he can't match even that speed at 32. Hawkins is a high 4.3s kind of guy who can keep up with anyone with elite ball-tracking skills, as displayed by 17 career picks as a pro and 13 interceptions in 3 seasons of NSCF play. That speed also helps for when he does over-commit to making a play on the ball - he can often make the tackle to prevent giving up an even larger play.


Free Safety: Alexander Ackermann
Number: 22
Height: 6-1
Weight: 195
Age: 27
Ackermann takes over for the veteran Kenny Leinden. A former #2 recruit for Ranoria and stud for Loyola-Istria, Ackermann plays domestically against elite competition in Banija's GFLB. He's a ball-hawking, rangy free safety who's more than capable of making a passer pay for an errant deep ball. Moved from corner to safety after his freshman year in college, and as such has excellent man-to-man coverage ability for his position.

Primary backup is Agnor Viridian, who will generally be employed as the team's dime DB when necessary.


Strong Safety: Judas Wolfson

Number: 40
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 215
Age: 30
Bringing in Judas Wolfson was a huge move for this defense last season. 1x RFL and 1x NSCF defensive player of the year, Wolfson is a playmaker in every way possible. Play him in the box all season and he'll give you a hundred tackles. On the back end? He's recorded four seasons of 4+ interceptions, and he's an absolutely adept blitzer. But that's not his game. You give Wolfson room to lay the hammer down, and he'll level anyone in front of him, no matter how big they are. Judas is an absolute enforcer and one of the best players in the RFL today, with 30 forced fumbles, 20 sacks, and 32 interceptions in his career. He's arguably the best player on this defense, but he will draw flags with his heavy-hitting tendencies.

Primary backup is Leon Elliot - either safety can and will be employed to cover tight ends from time to time. Elliot can serve as a nickel defender as well depending on the matchup.

Formations/Personnel Packages
Please Note - These are by no means comprehensive, but should give a general idea of personnel packages and formations.


12 Personnel "Heavy" Offense | Base Defense
- Vice Jackson III is a 3-down back, but expect Apollo Esther or Eric van Geel to sub in for him depending on the situation. Esther on running downs, van Geel on passing.
- Expect frequent substitutions at the defensive end spots. Angelo Gordon and Zach Skinner are veterans and future hall of famers while Albatross "Albie" Vergol is only a half-step behind Kearse and Fairbanks in terms of talent.

Image



11 Personnel "Base" Offense | Nickel Defense
- The nickel defense varies based on the offensive formation. When a nickel defender in the box is necessary, expect Leon Elliot to fill that role, or for Judas Wolfson to come down and Elliot to take over the SS spot, depending on the matchup.
- Scenarios seeing Wolfson in the box include but are not limited to an elite tight end, needing a quarterback spy, or several injuries to LBs necessitating his playing in the box.
- Vice Jackson III is a 3-down back, but expect Apollo Esther or Eric van Geel to sub in for him depending on the situation. Esther on running downs, van Geel on passing.
- Expect frequent substitutions at the defensive end spots. Angelo Gordon and Zach Skinner are veterans and future hall of famers while Albatross "Albie" Vergol is only a half-step behind Kearse and Fairbanks in terms of talent.

Image



"5-Wide" Offense | Dime/Prevent Defense
- Agnor Viridian is generally employed as the dime defender here
- In hail-mary situations, expect Angelo Gordon or Albus Vergol to sub in for Taurus to maximize the team's pass rush. - - If Gordon comes in, Gideon Kearse will bump inside to DT. Vergol will take the DT spot if he subs in.
- The offense rarely runs this formation to avoid showing it on film often, a sort of "ace in the hole." Its intention is to spread the defense out and make it difficult for them to disguise their coverages pre-snap, thus allowing Garrett to call the best play available at the line of scrimmage and speed up processing post-snap. Combined with Garrett's vaunted accuracy, it's an almost sure-fire way for this offense to get some momentum going. Expect a ton of audibles and hot routes to get called.

Chromatika Gridiron Football Team

Nickname: The Iron Legion
Head Coach: Eustace Hampton Jr., 62
Offensive Coordinator: Milo Jones-Smith, 50
Defensive Coordinator: Urga Jones, 41
Special Teams Coordinator: Niles Crescent, 46
World Rank: 4
Style Modifier: -1.5
Home Stadium: Henza Center, D'rea, Capital District, Chromatika (Cap. 66,530)


OFFENSE
Offensive Coordinator: Milo Jones-Smith, Chromia Cyan
Assistant Coordinator: Naia Curentino, Felswyr State University Firehawk
Offensive Philosophy: The Chromatik Iron Legion employs a possession-based philosophy, utilizing two backs, two receivers, and a tight end in an attempt to string together long drives that eat up a lot of the clock. With Sarai Gwenderyn now at the helm, they're becoming more of a finesse squad, but the defense-first philosophy holds true.
Players: - Starters in Italics

Quarterbacks
#03 - Sarai Gwenderyn - 23 years old. Ranoria City Falcons (Ranoria). Quick, accurate thrower, with good field vision and a tendency of creating big plays. Offensive Captain. (Former FSU)
#18 - Jill Kieran - 28 years old. Chromia Cyan. A more traditional pocket passer with decent speed, prefers to throw deep or be on the edge looking to cause trouble.
#08 - Sheila Pantoja - 23 years old. Memphis Steamers. A Quarterback suited to the triple-option who can run the ball, hand it off, or make clutch throws. (Former STU)

Backs
#25 - Lana Rhodes - 22 years old. Staramara Tech University Lava. A bulldozer of a back with low center of gravity that loves to run through contact.
#22 - Rowena Hastroff - 22 years old. Kohnhead City University Mighty Eagle (Kohnhead). A speedster with lightning-fast first step that can blow past defenders.
#35 - Lashon Upshaw - 23 years old. Munich Thrashers (Ranoria). A bullish fullback who's made it a life goal to make linebackers and defensive backs miserable, getting to the second level on most blocks.
#38 - Kaytlyne Sellers - 21 years old. Swisston City University Army Knives (Kohnhead). An aggressive back that initiates contact, Sellers can catch would-be-tacklers off guard with a second level of speed.

Receivers
#11 - Alessandra Mio - 25 years old. Ranoria City Falcons (Ranoria). 6 ft 5 inches tall, has massive reach. A Quarterback needs to only get the ball near her, she'll do the rest. (Former FSU)
#18 - Kern Sayan - 31 years old. Chromia Cyan. 5 ft 11 inches, precise route-runner. Not very physically imposing.
#84 - Cameron Pills-Otts - 29 years old. Knetyohai Icebreaker. 5 ft 4 inches. Mostly used for end-arounds and screen passes, has great vision. Also returns punts.
#81 - Demitrius St. Pierre - 20 years old. Raynor University Rocket (Valanora). 6 ft 4 inches. A jack of all trades who makes plays at almost any position on the field.
#83 - Raoul Seen - 25 years old. Qet Lynx. 6 ft 3 inches. A new find in the CFL with a tendency of winning almost every jump ball.

Tight Ends
#88 - Niles Gwivern - 24 years old. Qet Lynx. 6 ft 5 inches tall, 260+ pounds. Can block, catch, do it all. An absolute unit. (Former FSU)
#97 - Ulrich Jefferson - 20 years old. Felswyr State University Firehawk. 6 ft 8 inches. More of a pure receiver than a blocker.

Offensive Tackles
#72 - Diedre Gott - 22 years old. Kohnhead City University Mighty Eagle. Mauler with a second wind after making contact, very mobile for a big man.
#74 - Bernard Perry - 28 years old. Staramara Angel. Has surprising agility and is often called to pull out to block up front on screen plays. (Former FSU)
#62 - Giles Candy - 32 years old. Alnio Pirate. Has soft hands, can be used as a sixth offensive lineman in situations and catch sneak passes.
#59 - Lars Kendrick - 32 years old. Brisara Juggernaut. The biggest player on the team, is surprisingly athletic.

Offensive Guards
#66 - Pomeroy Lockhart - 26 years old. Staramara Angel. Leader of the offensive line, generates tremendous push and possesses solid vision. (Former FSU)
#53 - Cierra Oscar - 30 years old. Chromatik City Cyan. Blindside blocker for the Iron Legion, decent find.
#60 - Jefferson Reeves - 23 years old. Ranoria City Falcons (Ranoria). Uses size to compliment speed, and improves as the game goes on. (Former STU)
#73 - Ned Dott - 21 years old - University of Loyola-Istria (Banija). Decent reflexes, relentless motor.

Centers
#71 - Mikel Kingston - 23 years old - North Ashialand Juggernauts (Ranoria). Possesses solid fundamentals and good vision. (Former FSU)
#52 - Kaia James - 24 years old - Chromia City Cyan. Also long snapper for field goals. (Former FSU)
#56 - Anderson Keel - 33 years old - Alnio Pirate. Emergency backup, more of a streetball player.

DEFENSE
Defensive Coordinator: Urga Jones, Staramara Angels
Assistant Coordinator: Kasen Harrowitz, Richardson University
Defensive Philosophy: The Iron Legion uses a Base 3-4, with pressing safeties that rely on cornerbacks to play on an island. It is those cornerbacks that will determine if the team succeeds. Chromatika is strong against the run and the long pass, but can be bested by intermediate or short passes. The majority of the players come from the NSCF ranks.
Players: Starters in Italics

Defensive Ends
#60 - Jill Lia - 24 years old - Staramara Angel. A pure speedy edge rusher who has an endless motor. (Former FSU)
#65 - Kitty Kio - 23 years old - Brisara Juggernaut. A speedy edge rusher who uses agility to get around offensive linemen. (Former FSU)
#55 - Candace Ferrett - 22 years old - Cold Hill University Buffalo. An edge rusher with an endless motor who may be small in size but plays big.
#58 - Aubin Rouzet - 20 years old - Felswyr State Firehawk. A driven pass-rusher who can also drop back into coverage if the situation warrants it.

Defensive Tackles
#74 - Bernard Perry - 28 years old - Chromia Cyan. Agile, mobile, quick.
#79 - Parry Mioto - 30 years old - Alnio Pirate. Runs well, has a bit of a problem getting past people. (Former FSU)
#62 - Ronald Mimisimi - 32 years old. Sanar Battalion. Thrives on contact.

Outside Linebackers
#44 - Cara Setri - 28 years old - Staramara Angel. Loves to rush from the edge or drop into coverage, as is needed. (Former FSU)
#42 - Randy Mett - 32 years old - Brisara Juggernaut. More of a cover linebacker.
#54 - Nicole Manstrom - 21 years old - Felswyr State Firehawk. A lightning-fast blitzing specialist who makes her life hitting the backfield hard.
#49 - Odwin Freman - 27 years old - Alnio Pirate. Someone who has all the intangibles - but can get lost in the course of play.

Inside Linebackers
#59 - Mi-Hyeon Park - 23 years old - Feremete Maulers (Ranoria). Dictates the defense. Tackling machine. Decent coverage linebacker. Defensive Captain. (Former FSU)
#51 - Jere Rinaldi - 23 years old - Richardson Fenrirs (Ranoria). The hammer who can make any player that gets within range pay, physical specimen. (Former STU)
#40 - Nolan Marr - 33 years old - Qet Lynx. Veteran presence in the locker room, solid all-around.
#52 - Lauren Scott - 20 years old - Knetyohai Icebreaker. Skipped out on the NSCF experience altogether to go pro early, a raw talent.

Strong Safeties
#37 - Candice Jones - 28 years old - Qet Lynx. Hugs the line of scrimmage on almost every play, coming across on run support most of the time. Decent in coverage but not special.
#20 - Kera Small - 27 years old - Alnio Pirate. A player with solid fundamentals, Small overcommits at times.
#28 - Ying Taggert - 23 years old - Nashville Sabrecats (Ranoria). Emotional, physical, hard tackler.

Free Safeties
#24 - Vi Nia-Kaid - 26 years old - Staramara Angel. Has long reach and specializes in coverage. (Former FSU)
#39 - Drew Lia - 22 years old - University of Loyola-Istria (Banija). A leader on the field with skills to boot.
#28 - Jarome Kindler - 29 years old - Chromia City Cyan. An extra safety who can play in multiple DB packages, Kindler is a cerebral player.

Cornerbacks
#21 - Nikolai Dimitrov - 28 years old - Staramara Angel. 6 ft 5 inches. Sticks to his man like glue, uses long arms to break up completions. Perfectionist. (Former FSU)
#29 - Paul Mattieu - 24 years old - Dietrich Dynamos. 6 ft 3 inches. Plays a bit more aggressively for the ball. (Former FSU)
#27 - Victoria Mio - 22 years old - Cold Hill University Buffalo (Ranoria). 6 ft 8 inches. Lanky, aggressive, ballhawk. Instinctive player who studies to make up for fundamental weaknesses.
#48 - Larry Oyama - 32 years old - Staramara Angel. Nickel back, plays soft coverage while looking at the eyes of the Quarterback at all times.
#33 - Rowena Pillar - 31 years old - Brisara Juggernaut. An understudy who has solid fundamentals.

SPECIAL TEAMS
Special Teams Coordinator: Niles Crescent, Brisara Juggernaut
Assistant Coordinator: Vera James, Felswyr State University
Special Kicking Coach: Sara McAllister
Special Teams Philosophy: A kicker should never miss. Play for field position. Solid fundamentals. The Iron Legion doesn't do much trickery - but is very good at coverage and at kicking.
Players: - Starters in Italics

Kicker
#03 - Dwayne Markseon - 20 years old - Northern Moravica University Cougar (Banija). Having shown that he can be clutch with some range in his first two seasons with the Cougars, Markseon gets the call, having shown poise that is lacking at his age.
#16 - Lauren Schiavonne - 28 years old - Chromia City Cyan. Had the best season for a kicker ever in the CFL last season, going a perfect 33 of 33, including 10 of 10 from over 50 yards. If it wasn't for the talent factory that was the NSCF for Chromatika, she'd get the nod instead.

Punter
#12 - Nellie Katt - 22 years old - Ranoria City Falcons (Ranoria). Directional punter specializing in coffin corners. Not very good at long punts, but can drop them in. (Former FSU)

The Yeezie Organization for GridIron (YOGI) proudly presents St. Kanye's roster for World Bowl XLIV. The Surge continue their quest to reach the heights of gridiron glory, even as they saw their rank dip from fifth to sixth. But it didn't matter, that's to be expected once you're among the big names anyway, and now that they're done climbing to the top, it's now a matter of staying.

NATION INFO

Full nation name: The Glorious Free Republic of Saint Kanye
Short nation name: St. Kanye
Trigramme: STK
Demonym: Yeezie
Nickname: Surge
Colors: Purple, lime, black
World Rank: #6
Rivals: Ko-oren Dragonflies (all-time record: 2-2; 2-3 incl. playoffs)

UNIFORMS

Home (primary = purple pants, alternate = black pants)

Away (primary = purple pants, alternate = white pants)

STAFF

All players and staff are male, starters in bold, standout players with asterisk (*).

HC: Jeff Delphine
OC: Dan Shelby
DC: Kevin Macintyre
ST: Ken Kirby

Delphine, head coach and master motivator, runs the show, together with his trio of genius strategists in Shelby, Macintyre, and Kirby (offense, defense and special teams, respectively). The Surge is a pass-heavy, blitz-happy team, meaning that they want to get things done on the air and force their opponents to do so as well. However, they still work hard to make sure that they don't do badly on the things they focus less on.

OFFENSE

QB: #8 R.J. Linetti* / #5 Tim Hunt / #9 Malcolm Payne

Linetti remains as the Surge's starting QB and offensive captain. He's a dual threat, being both an accurate thrower as well as a speedy scrambler; young Malcolm Payne returns in the third string. The team also got several new reinforcements from the Upper Westside University Red Pandas squad that recently won the Memorial Bowl, first of which is the quick and accurate Tim Hunt, sliding into the backup role vacated by Harry Santos after his knee injury forced him to sit out this edition of the World Bowl.

RB: #34 Noah Sherman* / #20 Gregory Silk

Aside from Linetti, St. Kanye's ground attack lies mostly in the hands (or rather, legs) of Sherman, a World Bowl XLI Team of the Tournament member and a powerful back who doesn't think twice before bulldozing his opponents on the way to the endzone. Silk enters his second Bowl as the third down and speed back.

FB: #33 Nico Jackson / #32 Marco Jackson

The pass-catching Jackson brothers remain on fullback duty. Expect them to be rotated as starters every game, but Nico, the elder, will take the field first for Matchday 1.

WR: #12 Bruce Dobler* / #18 Patrick Moore / #13 Taylor Johns / #14 Deshawn Fredericks / #16 Hunter Lane / #15 Isaak Clearwater*

The receiving corps is where the Surge truly shine. Primary WR Dobler has the best hands on the team, while in the slot, we have the fast and flashy Moore. Johns is used as the kick return man and in rotation in three WR sets with UWU's star Fredericks, who along with some of his former schoolmates has declared for the upcoming Ranorian league draft (OOC: discussed through TG). Lane is a capable backup who could very well be starting in other teams; Clearwater, while listed as a wide receiver, doesn't catch any passes. He instead makes his name known as a gunner, hunting down the returner during kickoffs or punts.

TE: #80 Hussein Jeffers / #88 Greg Malloy / #81 Brayden Galazkiewicz

The starting tight end is the agile Jeffers. Malloy, his backup, is perhaps more known as the punt returner.

LT: #63 Burton Baxter / #62 Anthony Walsh
LG: #66 Derek Horton / #61 Robert Shannon
C: #69 Gordon Ferguson / #68 Michael Hicks
RG: #64 Clay Conrad / #65 Jahar Gray
RT: #60 Mitch Grant / #67 Theo Parker

No changes for the offensive line, who have been a big help in creating scoring opportunities for Linetti and company.

DEFENSE

LE: #77 Simon Carver / #72 Liam Steele
RE: #78 Matt Dawson* / #94 Ryan Blake
NT: #99 Robby Edison / #75 Jon Patel / #74 Kevin Montrose / #76 Ken Miles

The three starting defensive linemen have been playing together since Arena Bowl VI, and they have gelled into a fearsome run-stopping unit. Left end Carver is fast and energetic for a big guy, nose tackle Edison is both an unstoppable force and an immovable object, and Dawson is a total sack master.

LOLB: #52 Jasper Heath / #51 Zach Price
MLB: #56 Justin Varley* / #54 Brexton Bellinger / #58 Alvin Faris
ROLB: #53 Hansel Jones / #55 Shawn Solomon

Gotten past the Surge's front three? Well, your troubles are not yet over - Heath, Jones and newcomer Bellinger are all fast, smart and hard-hitting. But the true standout of this group is Varley, the newly appointed defensive captain - he can tackle, sack, force fumbles and incompletions, and intercept, among others.

CB: #22 Aidan O'Connor / #21 Mason Schwartz / #28 Bernard Van Pelt / #27 Phil Wade

O'Connor, another Team of the Tournament member, starts at cornerback opposite Schwartz, with Van Pelt being used in the nickel package. The three of them are good at covering opposing receivers, but even more so at getting picks.

FS: #40 Gary Bradman* / #37 Vincent Black
SS: #45 Oliver Law / #39 Axel Bartlett

Free safety Bradman was the defensive specialist in the Arena Bowl team; he has a great knack for reading and disrupting the other team's offensive strategies. Opposite him in the strong safety position is Law, the best tackler among the secondary.

SPECIAL TEAMS

K: #1 James Rasputin*
P: #10 Chris Florence
LS: #50 Ruben Elroy

Rasputin is a deadly combination of distance and accuracy and is almost always guaranteed three (or one) points whenever he steps onto the field. Rasputin's performance in the previous tournaments has gotten many people mentioning his name in discussions about who the best active kicker in the World Bowl would be. The Yeezies rely on punting less than other teams do. but that doesn't mean Florence has lost his importance. He does the kickoffs, and he does it well. Elroy is an excellent long snapper who has been with the team for several cycles now.

SITUATIONS

3DRB: #20 Gregory Silk
KR: #13 Taylor Johns
PR: #88 Greg Malloy
KOS: #10 Chris Florence
Holder: #5 Tim Hunt
Gunner1: #39 Axel Bartlett
Gunner2: #15 Isaak Clearwater
Off. Captain: #8 R.J. Linetti
Def. Captain: #56 Justin Varley
ST Captain: #15 Isaak Clearwater

PHILOSOPHY

Offense: I Form, ~70% Pass, ~30% Run
Defense: 3-4, Blitz Happy
Special Teams: Always go for it on 4th and less than 5 and on opponent's side of field.

Kriegiersien Gridiron Football National Team



For a nation where nudity is mandatory, clothes are always a nice surprise. Kriegiersien comes as always in their black Olympic rags.. jerseys.

After again terrible bad results in the World Bowl.. the exact same team was send again to WB 42. But this time with another call.
"If they don't win a medal, they don't need to come back. Seriously, we know people were they can walk the plank then. And the helmets are axed, too", the president proclaimed.

And the team failed again and literally was axed (but not the helmets) and replaced after missing WB 43 by the

Aturim Deephides Stonecutter School

who had played at the NSCF 26 and even won some games and impressed more than every other Kriegiersien football team on the field.

The school was opened from legendary Aturim Deephide, a dwarven Master Stonecutter who wanted to share his skills with the young generation. It is at least a few hundred years old.
Blood Ball was a sport often played by dwarfs and only after Kriegiersien took over the lands where the dwarves lived, they came in contact with other sports. The even more ruthless and ruleless football variant Kriegiersien Football lost its appeal soon, but the Stonecutter School was one of the first to change to the international approved version, but without any major success outside of their region.





The line-ups of dwarven Football teams are since the old times pretty simple. There are players who are defending and players who attack to get the ball over the line. In case of bad injuries players have to switch between roles.
One player is responsible for kicking the ball.

Only one player from the former National team was kept. Dudagog, an Orcish Tight End, what lead to a pushback from the Dwarven Team, who didn't want an "outsider - what's more a stinking Orc" in the team, but it was ultimately forced on them by the government.

New Gesem Pilgrims Football Team
Stadium: Redbird Stadium (cap. 50,000)
Offense: Pistol (1xRB, 1xTE, 3xWR)
Defense: 3-4 (3xDL, 4xLB, 4xDB)

Coaching Staff
Head Coach: Travis Kearney, 49
A former assistant and defensive coordinator at the University of Constantinople, Kearney stayed on briefly as a caretaker HC until Josh Wilkins was hired, after which he left to take a job as head of player development and recruitment at the University of Thebes. At Thebes, he successfully revamped the team’s recruiting strategy to address the ascendance of ‘Nople and ‘Polis to the NSCF. As head coach of the Pilgrims, he is primarily a manager, leaving the nitty gritty of tactics to his two, very capable coordinators.

Offensive Coordinator: Jordan McKinney, 60
As head coach and architect of the highly successful Busiris Junior College Oilers, McKinney has very little to prove in the world of coaching. Unfortunately for him, he is also a lifelong parishioner of the Rev. Lee Gibbs at Island Full Gospel Tabernacle, and as such was cajoled by his minister into coming out for the team. His motives aren’t entirely altruistic; a championship-winning juco head coach makes less than an assistant at a big school, so the additional money helps his large family, and the job allows him to put in a good word for his players besides. As an OC, he runs the offense much the same as he does at BJC, West Coast-style, with short passes and a heavy emphasis on play action.

Defensive Coordinator: Brianna Shackleford, 41
As the first girl ever to play varsity football in New Gesem, Brianna was considered little more than a curiosity as a teenager and was snubbed for all-conference honors or college offers despite putting up impressive numbers as an outside linebacker. Six-foot-three and the daughter of a powerful Sphinx, Brianna nevertheless made a career playing for East Alexandria JC and later Founders University before becoming a grad assistant at Founders U. DC for the Pilgrims is the highest-profile coaching gig she’s had, but many believe she is on track to a head coach position.

Sarzonia Stars

If my opponent RP's our game first, they may:
Choose my scorers: Yes
Choose scoring events: Yes
RP injuries to my players: Yes. I'll determine severity.
Godmod injuries: No
Godmod "other" events: No*
*Send me a TG or find me on Discord.

Head Coach: Gavin Davis, 39
Yes, THAT Gavin Davis. He took over from the fired Les Steckhall two World Bowls ago as interim manager. He then got the full time job. Davis will call offensive plays.
Quarterbacks Coach: Noah Hendry, 38
Running Backs Coach: Mike Pendry, 56
His Portland Pirates team led the Incorporated Gridball League in rushing, helping make up for an inexperienced quarterback.
Wide Receivers Coach: Mel Brady, 51
He serves in the same position on Woodstock's coaching staff, so he is used to the more wide open offence Gates wants in the nation's capital.
Tight Ends Coach: Marc Johnson, 40
He played on the last Stars team to suit up in a World Bowl. Currently in his first coaching role.
Offensive Line Coach: George Cowley, 40
Also played for the Stars in their previous World Bowl appearance, he has been the offensive line coach for a semipro team for three seasons.
Defensive Coordinator: Tyler Paige, 49
The younger brother of former Stars coach Arthur Paige, Tyler worked extensively with the line and with edge linebackers until his promotion to interim defensive coordinator.
Defensive Line Coach: Joyce Latimer, 37
Latimer was a coaching intern, then later assistant defensive line coach. She was elevated to interim defensive line coach upon Paige's promotion.
Linebackers Coach: Jerome London, 45
He was a coach on the field for the Stars as a player and will formally coach the linebacker corps now.
Secondary Coach: Kevin Leonard, 45
Another veteran of the last Stars team who takes on a coaching role.
Special Teams Coordinator: Dylan Massey, 52
Massey has tutored kickers and seems to specialise in turning them into walk off kick experts.

Offence: Balanced (-1.5 modifier)
Defensive style: Base 4-3
Two-point conversion modifier: LOGICAL
Home surface: Grass (Joe Gibbs Stadium, Woodstock - capacity 75,900)

STARTERS
OFFENCE
QB: Cameron Stallworth (6-foot-3, 215 pounds), Woodstock
Stallworth is mobile and can make some plays with his legs. He also has a stronger arm than former starter Sam Rosen.
RB: Ty'Relle Clinton (Portland), 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, 24
He employs a bruising running style, but he can surprise defenders with speed and quickness when he gets out in space.
FB: Les Creighton (New Jeruselem Monks), 6-foot-1, 245 pounds
Creighton's a blocker who will occasionally get the ball in short yardage situations.
WR: Steve Swain (Corcorran Cruisers), 6-foot-3, 205 pounds
He's the guy you want to get the ball in crucial third down conversions.
WR: Matt Largent (Wilmington Roughnecks), 5-foot-11, 185 pounds
He's the speedster in the lineup and he's the deep threat.
TE: Al Langston, 6-foot-5, 265 pounds (Woodstock)
He started as a blocker until Week 7 last season when he caught eight passes for 76 yards and two touchdowns. Now he handles both roles.
LT: Matt Frost, 6-foot-4, 325 pounds (Woodstock), 29 years old
Frost protects Locklear's blind side in Woodstock and is expected to here.
LG: Nate Felton (Corcorran), 6-foot-2, 319 pounds, 31 years old
He was on the last Stars team and will be counted on for veteran presence as much as his blocking.
C: Rodney Tucker (Portland), 6-foot-2, 293 pounds, 33 years old
Tucker makes up for lack of size by technique and experience. He's the de facto captain of the line.
RG: Marty Vance (Nicksia Knights), 6-foot-5, 335 pounds
He was always nicknamed House when he was growing up, even after he was no longer THE biggest player on either team.
RT: Ike Dennehy (Truxtun Commodores), 6-foot-5, 355 pounds
Dennehy is used to protecting the blind side of a lefty quarterback, and he can throw terrifying blocks in the run game.

DEFENCE
DE: Arlen Cunningham (Wilmington), 6-foot-3, 280 pounds
He's a pass rusher through and through. Paige is expected to sub him out for short yardage run situations.
DT: Al Cohen (Truxtun), 6-foot-3, 350 pounds
Steps in as a run-stopper with Colin Grassley being cut from the team.
DT: Pete Downey (Somerset Snakes), 6-foot-4, 360 pounds
He's another run-stopper who will be subbed for in pass rush situations.
DE: Clancy Wilson (Woodstock), 6-foot-3, 295 pounds
Another guy who can rush the passer. He can stay in on short yardage situations.
WLB: Artem Roshovski (Portland), 6-foot-2, 265 pounds
Pass rusher. Lives in the weight room. Often plays pass rushing defensive end on third and long.
MLB: Howard Dent (Woodstock), 6-foot-1, 255 pounds
He calls the signals for the defence. He knows how Paige thinks and what he wants.
SLB: Calvin Jacks (Wilmington), 6-foot-3, 270 pounds
Known more as a run-stuffer who can play end in a pinch, he logged a career-high five sacks last season.
CB: Will Donnelly (Portland), 6-foot, 200 pounds
He typically plays the opposing team's best receiver and is known as a shutdown corner.
CB: Quinn Bowles (Woodstock), 5-foot-11, 190 pounds
He's more of a speed guy than even Donnelly is, but isn't a sure tackler.
FS: Cliff Longoria (Corcorran), 6-foot-4, 240 pounds
Think the late Sean Taylor. That's how he plays.
Strong Safety: Zane Yates (Portland), 6-foot-2, 235 pounds
He's another terrifying hitter on a team full of terrifying hitters.

BENCH
OFFENCE
QB: Mike Barnett (Wilmington), 6-foot-3, 210 pounds.
Not the best arm, but he can execute a West Coast offence if necessary.
QB: Wendy Bartlett (no affiliation), 5-foot-11, 170 pounds
Has some mobility and a decent arm. Her lack of experience and size will keep her third string for now.
RB: Paul Edgerton (Woodstock), 5-foot-9, 195 pounds
He's a scatback who can catch passes out of the backfield when called upon.
FB: Wilson Marquez (Truxtun), 6-foot-3, 250 pounds
WR: Hayden Gregory (Portland Power, women's gridball team) 5-foot-7, 175 pounds, 23 years old
WR: Marquise Harris (Truxtun), 6-foot-4, 215 pounds
TE: Edison Burkett (Wilmington), 6-foot-1, 245 pounds
RB: Tom Bennett (Woodstock), 6-foot-3, 220 pounds
TE: Austin Vesey (Nicksia), 6-foot-4, 260 pounds
OT: Zeke Bradley (New Jeruselem), 6-foot-5, 340 pounds
OG: Yael Jeffries (Rypien) 6-foot-2, 317 pounds
OT/OG Spencer Henderson (Townshend Tornados), 6-foot-5, 330 pounds
C: Aaron Branson (Portland), 6-foot-4, 315 pounds
DT: Al Cohen (Truxtun), 6-foot-3, 350 pounds
DT/DE: Harvey Quace (New Jeruselem), 6-foot-3, 295 pounds
DE: Ryan Nichols (Portland), 6-foot-3, 290 pounds
DE/LB: Steve Fischer (Townshend), 6-foot-2, 280 pounds
LB: Troy Walton (Corcorran), 6-foot-1, 260 pounds

CB: Tyrriel Langston (Nicksia), 5-foot-9, 175 pounds
S: Chris Snell (Portland), 6-foot, 205 pounds

SPECIAL TEAMS
P: Evelyn Sutter (holds for extra points and field goal attempts. If there were a need for a fourth-string quarterback, she'd get the call.)
K: Matt Vargas
Former WLC President. Current member of the IBC and WBC Councils and the WCoH Federation. He/him/his.

Postby Sarzonia » Tue May 03, 2022 7:14 am

Gavin Davis wasn't expecting that to happen.

He'd interviewed James Arthur, the manager of the Woodstock University gridball team previously for a role as offensive coordinator. He walked away from the interviews impressed with Arthur as an offensive mind, as a leader, and as a person. Guiding a first-year NSCF team to a 10-win season and a first round playoff victory en route to becoming NSCF Coach of the Year spoke volumes about him as a gridball coach and as a person.

The negotiations broke down when the Incorporated Gridball Federation insisted that Arthur step down from his role as Climbers manager to take on the position as offensive coordinator of the Stars. It was the kind of requirement literally no one else in the Sarzonian national gridball team's managerial staff was expected to follow. Each one of the position coaches, the defensive and special teams coordinators, and Davis himself all retained their roles with their respective Incorporated Gridball League teams. Only Arthur was being asked to stick with just the national team. And Arthur wasn't having it.

Arthur turned down several offers, no matter how much money the IGF offered, no matter how much of a say in the offensive game plan he was being offered. Davis was willing to turn the keys of the offence over to Arthur. Then again, Davis was also willing to allow Arthur to remain as Climbers manager, but the IGF vetoed that idea. That was the point where negotiations broke down. For Arthur, it wasn't the money. It wasn't exposure or fame. He wanted to stay on campus and the IGF wanted him to walk away when he absolutely wasn't ready.

After Arthur guided the Climbers to an 11-win season, a Sequoia Conference title, and even more victories over the powerhouses of NSCF's past, Davis decided to try again. This time, he was given an assurance from his bosses that Arthur would be allowed to keep his job with the Climbers if he wanted it. Then again, Davis recalled he was told that earlier, but the Board of Governors balked at the idea. What Davis didn't know this time was that the Board watched the Climbers rattle off six consecutive victories after starting 5-3 and saw it crush defending NSCF runners up Northern Moravica at Dave WIlson Stadium. They saw how well prepared the Climbers were week in and week out. Even a 27-0 loss to Green City in the quarterfinals didn't deter the Board. They were finally ready to concede to Arthur and allow him to keep his job.

So when Davis called from his office phone and Arthur answered, he was sure Arthur would be receptive to the idea of keeping his job at Woodstock University and serving as offensive coordinator. In fact, Davis was willing to offer the title of assistant head coach and offensive coordinator, firmly establishing Arthur as Davis's No. 2 man on the managerial staff.

However, when Arthur heard the voice on the other end of the phone and realised it was Davis, he slammed the phone down. For Arthur, the negotiations and the fact the Board was unwilling to even consider allowing him to keep his job in Woodstock left a bad taste in his mouth. The Board itself was the same. The people who'd decided he had to leave Woodstock were the same. He had no way of knowing that they'd changed their minds. They would have no way of knowing he was now willing to entertain the prospect of leaving Woodstock University now that the Climbers were more established as a potential championship contender. Sure, they now had unfinished business after their loss to Green City, but Arthur had every confidence in Chris Hoskins to continue to steer the ship.

A few minutes after the attempt to call Arthur, Davis tried again, this time with his personal mobile phone calling Arthur's personal mobile. Arthur had his phone turned off whilst he was in the midst of negotiating a new contract with the Board of Regents. They were prepared to offer him a substantial raise, to go along with major salary increases for the entire Climbers staff. He'd had a taste of success at the collegiate level with the Climbers' domestic exploits and their 21 victories across two NSCF seasons.

Davis, for his part, was willing to again call offensive plays, although he was also willing to bring Arthur on as a "consultant" to essentially introduce him to the offensive players and allow him to learn the playbook so he could eventually design his own. But for now, Arthur and the Stars were not destined to join forces now that training camp was about to get underway for the Stars.

Head Coach: Nabru RE'YEM
Age: 47 | Years as Head Coach: 1

The former Head Coach of two-time Avatarian Collegiate Sports Confederation National Champions, the Adirolf Gators, Nabru Re'yem was selected from a pool of fifteen collegiate and professional Coaches to command Gyatso-kai's first-ever National Gridiron team. Considered one of the most accomplished practitioners of the spread offence, Re'yem's teams at Bowling Blue, Hatu State, Adirolf, as well as his first professional team in Rev’ned all have run the spread, chiefly utilising a run-first variation, often tweaked to fit his offensive personnel; for example, Re'yem's first two years ad Adirolf skewed toward a drop-back passing attack lead by Risch Keal, while Alex Smith and Mit Wobet lead an option run-based spread. It would be under this offence that Re'yem would win tw0 ACSC titles, as well as becoming the first coach to lead a non-CBS conference team (Hatu State) to a CBS bowl and coaching a Shaoyin Trophy winner (Wobet) and graduating a player who became a number one overall pick in the Republic Gaan'shuk League (RGL) draft.

General Manager: SUZUKI Haru
Age: 67 | Years At Job: 1


The General Manger of the National Team, Suzuki Haru has had quite the experiences managing teams. First selected as the General Manager of FC Mando back in 1988, he has since bounced between two different sports in three nations; heading FC Mando from 1996-2001, then making the leap to RC United from 2001-2010, and since 2011, heading the Imami Dolphins organisation in the RGL. Announced as the National GM, Suzuki has been incredibly busy travelling around the Republics as well as abroad, seeking players from multiple gridiron leagues who possess Avatarian citizenship to play on the team.

Special Teams Cooridnator: NGUYEN Thomas
Age: 46 | Years At Job: 1


Not much is known is about Nguyen, save that he has been the secondary coach at Adirolf for the past two seasons, and the team has made a strong turn-around to have the #3 ranked secondary in the league when compared to their last-place position in the 2021.1 Season


Offensive Coordinator: YAMAHUCHI Qing
Age: 49 | Years At Job: 1


While most offensive coaches are out on the field during practices, giving players invaluable lessons thanks to years of experience, Yamahuchi is not given such a chance. With Re’yem’s almost-obsessive need to control everything at practice, Yamahuchi is left to call the plays during games and deal with the offensive lessons at team meeting... Poor guy...

Quaterbacks Coach: CHEN Takumi
Age: 49 | Years At Job: 1


Chen spent nearly fifteen years in Avatarian gridiron and gaan'shuk games as a spread quaterback, with all of the intangibles which made him great. The simple fact that he has such a wealth of knowledge at his disposal makes him probably one of the best QB coaches around to develop the still-young talents of Wobet and Notwen; both of whom are constantly criticized in the RGL for their ‘unique’ styles.

Running Backs Coach: SATO Yuudai
Age: 56 | Years At Job: 1


An impressive running back in the prime of his career, Sato has managed to piece together many prime combos in his years as Head Coach of Penoc State. By adding him to the national team, Re'yem hopes to bring the 'luck' Sato seems to naturally seep onto any team he has been a part of.

Receivers Coach: SHAO Liju
Age: 62 | Years At Job: 1


An old receiver who played in the days of the Pass Offence's prime, Shao has continued to impress the Management of the National Team in the three years as Receiver's Coach at the University of Imaim; given weak and less-than-average talented players, he has continued to develop a team which ranks in the Top 10 on Receiving throughout the RGL. Though, Receivers are only a part of the equation, and Shao has much work to be completed before the National Team is even considered a threat on the International stage...

Offensive Line Coach: YAMAHUCHI Qing
Age: 49 | Years At Job: 1


Taking a page from his college days, Re’yem assigned Yamahuchi has both Offensive Line Coach AND Offensive Coordinator. However, were has in the OffCo role Re’yem is constantly mucking around, Yamahuchi is more free to do his job at OLC; utilising the years of experience he has as being the Offensive Line Coach of three Supreme Bowl teams to help form a decent national team.


Defensive Coordinator: NAKAMURA Yoshi
Age: 42 | Years At Job: 1


Left to his own devices by Re'yem, Nakamura is in charge of all defensive play-calling. Having led the best defence in the RGL for the past seven years, Nakamura is the architect for the Boarcupine's flexible defence; one which the team hopes to not only slow down the momentum of any successful plays, but to outright stop them in their tracks.

Defensive Line Coach: KOIZUMI Hideyoshi
Age: 47 | Years At Job: 1


Having served on the defensive line of the RGL's top team for nearly fifteen years, Koizumi has accumulated much knowledge and experience when it comes to the defence for the Enceri Jets, which Re’yem hopes to bring to the Boarcupines.

Linebackers Coach: ALMEC Julien
Age: 37 | Years At Job: 1


Almec just recently retired from his record-setting career as a linebacker with the Yinduchengshi Maju; while he knows his position better than anyone in Gyatso-kai, he has yet to hold any real coaching job save Senior Lineback at Maju camps. Only time will tell us how great or how poor he is at passing on his knowledge.

Secondary Coach: NGUYEN Thomas
Age: 46 | Years At Job: 1


With so few players to handle, it would make little sense for the Boarcupines to hire an individual coach as opposed to simply utilising the available staff. As such, Nguyen pulls double-duty as both Secondary Coordinator and Secondary Coach.

Alternate ---------------- Home ---------------- Away





As the fifth-most common sport in the Avatarian Republics – after Ice Hockey, Football, Pro-Bending, and Collegiate Hockey – the development of the Republic Gridiron League has not been quite up to snuff when compared to the other dominant leagues in Gyatso-kai. As such, most RGL teams share facilities with their RPFL counterparts, or in the rare instance, have a dedicated facility or will have one in the future.

Official Name: Stadia Capital
Local Name: The Stadia
Seating Capacitu: 78,050
Location: Beijing, Jing Prefecture, Earth Kingdom, Gyatso-kai
Games Hosted: To Be Announced

Located on the far western shores of Gyatso-kai, Beijing is one of the largest Earth Kingdom Cities in the nation. Taking its name from the bastion-like construction of Beijing, as well as its status as the capital of the fledgling Republics before the Unification, the Stadia Capital is primarily a football arena that will host multiple different sporting and entertainment events throughout the year. For the RGL, it serves as the home of the Beijing Ironclaws.

Given that Beijing is an Earth Kingdom City, fans in attendance will be given a crash course in Earth Kingdom traditions and life. Do not be surprised should you come across bending in your journey; unlike the egalitarian nature of Republic City and the territories of the United Republics, Earth Kingdom people take great pride to incorporate their natural bending talents into their everyday lives. From train-car systems that rely on gravity to come downhill and bending to move uphill, to the Pro-Bending League pre-season games that will be held at the Earthen Ring during the two matchdays, visitors from around the multi-verse will get a taste of the blending of the traditional and the modern that occurs throughout the Republics.

Official Name: Zhou Imaim Field at BisonExpress Stadium
Local Name: The Bowl
Seating Capacit:y 24,500
Location: Imaim City, Hajak’ai Province, Mandalore, Gyatso-kai
Games Hosted: To Be Announced

Of the eighteen RGL teams, only five possess their own dedicated stadiums. One of those five is the Imaim Dolphins, who are one of the Elder Six – the six founding teams of the RGL. Located just a stone’s throw across the Kaowlu Bay from Nandikiang City, the waterfront city of Imaim is a trade hub for the Central Region of Gyatso-kai. As such, the city is bustling with activity – from the shallow water port of Port Ne’tra’piruun to the never-sleeping downtown district, Imaim is an outlier when it comes to Mandalorian cities in regard to their ‘metropolitan’ status.

Expect to see little in the traditional Mandalorian ways, and more of a fusion of modern Avatarian fashion with Mandalorian sensibilities. Think adding the Four Nations to a blender and having a Mando make the dish.

BisonExpress Stadium – so named for their sponsor – is a dedicated gridiron stadium, seating just under twenty-five-thousand fans of the Teal & Orange in lavish surroundings. Certainly not a bastion of sporting legends like those found in Kelita or Itakawai, Imaim has enjoyed some success as of late, with the Dolphins finding themselves in the playoffs as solid contenders. Expect to see far more fans in the home team jersey than the national team’s kit… though, with recent giveaways at events announcing their selection as a host stadium, that balance may shift slightly.

Offence

Style: +2.5 out of +5.0
Primary Front: Spread Option
Overview: A team which showcases the speed and agility needed to effectively run a Spread Option style of play. Expect Wobet to pass the ball just as often as he runs it in. When under Notwen, you can expect just a bit more passing, but still, the offence will try and spread the defence wide and create perfect centre lanes for passing or rushing...

#15 - Mit WOBETTEAM CAPTAIN
Height: 191cm | Weight: 111kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions


The starting quaterback and the Captain of the Boarcupines, Mit Wobet is one of the most prolific Avatarian players in the 21st Century. Holding multiple records in the ASCA's Southeastern Conference, Wobet eventually went on to lead the Adirolf Gators to back-to-back ACSC National Championships; 2017 and 2018. Wobet is known as a dual threat quaterback; one who as adept at rushing as he is at passing the football. With his unorthodox RGL skills, frequent demonstrations of his religious devotion, combined with his team's recent success, Wobet has attracted unprecedented praise, criticism, and attention from the sporting media and beyond.

#13 - Mac NOTWEN
Height: 196cm | Weight: 118kg | Age: 22 | College: University of Kibago | Professional: Linacaro Panthers


Much like his starting counterpart, Mac Notwen comes from a very prolific collegiate career; originally starting on the same team as Wobet in 2017, Notwen would end up transferring to Kibago so as to gain a starting position as opposed to back-up. He would lead Kibago to the 2020 Avatarian Collegiate Sports Confederation National Champions and then be drafted in the first round in the 2020 RGL Draft. Another double-threat, Notwen is more adept at passing, and is often brought in when the rush is not working out or Wobet is simply being shutdown in the air or on the ground.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: A


#23 - TACHIBANA Huang
Height: 182cm | Weight: 106kg | Age: 30 | College: University of Imaim | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions


In his very first professional run, Tachibana broke two defensive line tackles, six more running down the field for a 93-yard touchdown. Since then, he has continued to set multiple records season after season. Just last season, he set a team record for 180 yards in a game with ten carries and three touchdowns.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: B - Morale: A - Form: A


#35 - SHUI Jiamah
Height: 175cm | Weight: 97kg | Age: 26 | College: University of Omashu | Professional: Hitomori Hawks


Shui is a fragile speedster amongst full-sized trucks. Shui is only good in between the tackles so long as he has good blocks from the offensive lines. Running to the outside, or playing as more of a halfback, though, is a different tale. Shui is one of the fastest players on the offence, and if Shui gets free of the defence, few can catch him.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: B - Morale: B - Form: A


#37 - SATO Jirou
Height: 175cm | Weight: 90kg| Age: 25 | College: University of Kibago| Professional: Kamino Cloners


Another smaller running back, Sato lacks Tachibana's power through the middle of the field, however, he does possess enough speed to make it between the tackles. In addition, his strength is very respectable; which consider he spends his time at Kamino facing defensive men twice his size, yet he is still able to get the ball out is a feat on its own.
Rating: B- - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: C


#42 - LIN Shun
Height: 180cm | Weight: 102kg | Age: 25 | College: Penoc State University | Professional:Bralin Accipiters


Originally drafted to the Kyrimorut Troopers fresh out of Penoc State, Lin saw little success there. However, with the expansion of the RGL in 2019.3 , he soon found himself on the newest team in the league, the Bralin Accipiters. While his skills and morale leave much to be desired, his speed and form are incredibly strong; many suspect this is why he was brought onto the team. Given his size over Sato, expect to see Lin make more substitutions on the second line, while Larsen brings up front-line support.
Rating: B- - Team Relationship: B - Morale: C - Form: A


#46 - Re'spen LARSEN
Height: 188cm | Weight: 111kg | Age: 28| College: University of Omashu | Professional: Bralin Accipiters
**NOTE: Plays as Fullback**


Much like Lin, Larsen is much more the physical running back; with size, strength, and speed on his side, one can only imagine why Larsen was not on a higher line. It all comes down to morale and his relationship with the team; given his mentality, Larsen is a defeatist, one who is far more prone to lay down and give up then to get back up and fight... though with such a strong form, we can still expect to see him on the field at least twice a game. Also, given that he actually plays at the fullback position, anytime we see the Boarcupines shift from the Spread, expect to see Larsen right in the middle of it all.
Rating: C+ - Team Relationship: C - Morale: C - Form: B


#27 - HASHIMOTOIsamu
Height: 180cm| Weight: 91kg | Age: 24 | College: Roku Univesity | Professional: Kamino Cloners


Having only played two years of professional ball is not something uncommon on the Boarcupines. However, Hashimoto snuck onto the playing roster without anyone really noticing. While Hashimoto possesses some speed, some size, and decent hands, he is still a developing player out of college, though the signs point to a bright future.

#33 - YU Wei
Height: 180cm | Weight: 103kg| Age: 27 | College: Saigon City College | Professional: Yinuutki Jotuns


Having saved his chances with the national team thanks to a fantastic performance in the Supreme Bowl with the second-place Yinuutki Jotuns, Yu earns his place as a #4 running back held in reserve. Yu will rotate around with other running backs, or even may play inside-receiver on plays when his amazing speed can come into use. Many feel Yu should be placed into the Receiver Corps, yet Re'yem still keeps him in the Running Corps...

#40 - BAI Rikuto
Height: 184cm | Weight: 112kg | Age: 24 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Bralin Accipiters
**NOTE: Plays as Fullback**


After taking a year in-between college and his professional career to serve a tour of duty in Gaoling, Bai Rikuto makes the national team after just a single season of professional ball. Brought in mostly due to his experience running the spread at REU, Bai is not exactly a stand-out receiver, since his position at REU was first-line fullback. However, Re'yem hopes to see him develop as a strong running back in the national team in Michael VII.

#19 - Atin UTHAN
Height: 180cm | Weight: 83kg | Age: 24 | College: Hatsu State University | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions
***Note - First Choice Punt Returner, Second Choice Kick Returner ***


Drafted to the Stallions the season before the arrival of Webot, Atin Uthan was given just a year before the Stallions reverted back to his old college style. Since then, he has moved up the depth chart, finding himself in the first squad for the first time since his third season at Hatsu State. Coming in as a tremendously physical player, Uthan comes off of a close call in the Supreme Bowl for the RGL. Critical to the games he plays in due to his knack at making big plays and covering his zones, Uthan has made a habit in Rev'ned of making highlight-reel-worthy interceptions, or just ruining a perfect pass by knocking it into the ground.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: A


#88 - A'den KATO
Height: 190cm | Weight: 107kg | Age: 24 | College: Hatsu State University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


A big-play receiver, Kato was a college teammate of Uthan, which is likely why he was picked for the national team opposite of him. While he has terrific hands, incredible speed and a kangaroo-like leaping prowess, Kato also is large enough and strong enough to be a true physical player, which you can see him from time-to-time excelling in pushing heavier defencemen back and back and back some more...
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: A


#87 - GANG Ru
Height: 190cm | Weight: 99kg | Age: 24 | College: Roku University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
***Note - Second Choice Punt Returner, Third Choice Kick Returner***


A player very similar to Kato in almost all areas, Gang Ru faces the challenges of size against the much larger defensive ends; the same height as Kato, Gang is about eight kilos lighter. He is somewhat quicker on the draw than Kato, which means he could end up with more time on the field. He stills needs to work on his form, which still leaves much to be desired, which surprises many as to his selection.

#18 - Arthit SOMCHAI
Height: 180cm | Weight: 85kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Omashu | Professional: Kamino Cloners


Another young receiver, Somchai was added to the team so as to provide depth to the veteran-filled reserves. With some big-play potential, Somchai made many pushes for the Cloners in the last half of the 202.1 Season, however, some argue his form leaves much to be desired....

#12 - GI Klahan Moon
Height: 182cm | Weight: 86kg | Age: 27 | College: University of Omashu | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


A career wide receiver for the Beroyas, Gi is also the primary kick returner for the Boarcupines. Given his immense speed, few can stop him, let alone keep up with him. However, to gain such speed, he is not the biggest of men on the team. This lack of size has hampered his development through his career; as a result of a heavy hit in the RFC Playoffs, Gi missed the first half of the 2021.2 season.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: B - Morale: B - Form: A


#83 - QING Kikwan[/color]
Height: 187cm | Weight: 88kg | Age: 22 | College: University of the Southern Tribes | Professional: Kamino Cloners


The youngest player on the team, drafted in the first second round of the 2021.3 draft, Qing Kikwan comes in off of a stellar college career. However, this college career did not translate to a great professional career. Instead, it brought him from the first string of the UST Walruses to the third string of the Cloners. While his speed is impressive, his hands are just sub-par and his vision is not terrific. With time, Qing will develop into a great receiver... but that time is still to come.
Rating: C - Team Relationship: C - Morale: C - Form: B


#82 - PAM Shao
Height: 179cm | Weight: 84kg | Age: 27 | College: Penoc State University | Professional: Bralin Accipiters (2012.1-)


As a player who has moved around a bit, Pam has made the constant move from Mando teams to Mando teams to Mando teams. This continues to solidify his role as a quick runner with massive hands which make catching a silverbass look like picking up an ajai fruit. However, why he made it to the reserves of the Boarcupine no one can quite understand. Perhaps it is just a coincidence... perhaps it is to help develop the 24-years-old front two lines...

Height: 190cm | Weight: 90kg | Age: 25 | College:

Height: 192cm | Weight: 114kg | Age: 28 | College: University of Kibago | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


The number one draft pick of 2020.3, Fells is still playing for the same team that drafted him. A classic tightend, who simply knows his job and gets it done without any questions.

#81 - OIR'ASOR Dante
Height: 193cm| Weight: 113kg | Age: 27 | College:
University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions


Very similar to his first-line counterpart, Oir’asor is another classic tightend. He gets the job done each and every time, though, you can expect a few slips in his reading ability from time to time. Luckily, he has experience --- both professional and collegiate --- with Wobet, so the two are able to interact very well.

#78 - Hakoda KUNAYAK
Height: 198cm | Weight: 142kg | Age: 25 | College: Roku University | Professional: Kyrimorut Troopers
**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


Kunayak is a strong left tackle, who while at RU developed wonderfully in their run-first system. Drafted in the first round of the 2020.2 draft, he soon found himself in more of pass-protection role at Kyrimorut. Even with the Boarcupines, he is finding his niche; however, he is not finding it fast-enough. So, as always, rotation will see him swapped around with Clark when we see Notwen take the helm.
Rating: A- - Team Relationship: B - Morale: B - Form: A


#75 - Sir'ch CLARK
Height: 196cm | Weight: 139kg | Age: 26 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


Another solid left tackle on the Boarcupines offensive line. Clark is equally as great as Kunayak, though, he is slightly more adapted to the Spread Offence utilised by the team. Expect to see him rotated around with Kunayak whenever Wobet is at the head.

#67 – Ma’jau QIPA’LO
Height: 194cm | Weight: 140 kg | Age: 22 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


A young gun fresh from a championship season with the Gators, Qipa’los is as adept at running with the Spread as any of the left tackles on the team. However, while his knowledge is incomparable, his experience is lacking, which is why Re'yem has him in the third slot. With time, he will be magnificent, but for now, he is just good.

#68 - Beane ZALES
Height: 193cm | Weight: 138kg| Age: 25 | College: Penoc State University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas
**Note: Plays as Left Guard**


Zales is a ferocious blocker, which is great, considering how important guards are in stalling the defence to allow the time needed for the Spread to work.

# 73- Kalin KUPER
Height: 193cm | Weight: 137kg | Age: 29 | College: Northern University | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Left Guard**


A fierce competitor, honed by several high-value contest at Northern University and at Rev'ned, Kuper is not to be underestimated. The most experience left guard on the team, Kuper imparts his time-earned wisdom to the younger men on the line. He is not the best at the position, though, his experience does outrank his lack of form.

#65 - Kiya MIR’IM
Height: 190cm | Weight: 143kg | Age: 29| College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Centre**


After serving four years with the Grand Army of the Republic, Mir’im has become an impressive presence on the field. A massive man, who has maintained his form and shape since graduating from Adirolf, he was drafted by the Cloners and has since developed into one hell of a steady hand for the offence there. He plays with the same mentality as many guards; this equates to one fine blocker who tends to enjoy taking tackles head-on.

Height: 193cm | Weight: 138kg | Age: 36 | College: Saigon City College | Professional:, Hitomori Hawks
**Note: Plays as Right Guard**


The veteran of the Boarcupines, Hochstein has still managed to keep a foot on his younger competition. Still a very capable and aggressive guard, Hochstein still resembles his prime when he helped lead three teams to championship seasons; Itakawai in 2018.4, Rev’ned in 2019.2, and Hitomori in 2020.1 Though he is getting a little long in the tooth, he is still a terrifying man to face on the field.

Height: 200cm | Weight: 150kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Imaim | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas
**Note: Plays as Right Tackle**


Noongwook is a right tackle who is as good at pass protection as he is at run blocking. He garnishes the favour of Re'yem due to his love of playing and the love of doing his job well. Extremely devoted to the team, he was ejected from a college game when the opposition gave an illegal hit to his quaterback... and Noongwook felt it best to take off his helmet and bash it upside the hitter when he got up. One of the ASCA's best remembered games.

Height: 196cm | Weight: 139kg | Age: 27 | College: University of the Southern Tribes | Professional: Bralin Accipiters
**Note: Plays as Right Tackle**


Hills is a solid all-around player, but is not at the same level of talent as his compatriots. He fills in when needed, and is known from time to time to deliver a terrific performance, however, do not expect to see him outperform Noongwook, and Hills will remain in the second line of the right tackle position.

**Note: Plays as Right Tackle:**


A younger player who has seen much growth since his days at Omashu, Rishar is a very strong and big tackle, though he just lacks the talent of Noongwook or Hills. He fills in the thrid spot well, and expect to see him play every other game or so, or even when Noongwook needs rest mid-game.

Defence

Style: -3.0 out of -5.0
Primary Front: 4-3 defence
Overview: This defence is designed with a blitz-heavy approach in mind. While it is filled with many great talents, it is not the best aspect of the Boarcupines. While many saw the AO Bowl as a true test of the team – one which saw them place second overall, it is certainly not guaranteeded for regional success to translate to the multi-verse stage.

#96 - REIN’UN Ch’tim
Height: 193cm | Weight: 132kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Adiolf | Professional: Rev’ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Right Tackle**


Slightly smaller than Leybunk on the left, Rein’un is the best defensive lineman playing for the Boarcupines. With his professional years spent running the 4-3, not to mention his entire college career under the same front, Rein’un knows what he is doing, and he does it very well. While he is no speed-demon, he is quick enough on his feet so as to pose a threat to inside-rushers, and he has more than once laid out a quarterback who underestimated him.

Height: 188cm | Weight: 139kg | Age: 28 | College: Adirolf State University | Professional: Enceri Jets
**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


A terrific nose for passers and ball-carriers, Leybunk is a very capable tackle who fills the role of a run-stopper for the Boarcupines. With decent explosiveness off the line and having a knack for mucking the offensive line up just enough to stop any progress, Leybunk brings experience and charisma to any team he is on.

**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


Nay’r is very efficient as a tackle, able to read the offence from the other side and know exactly who it is he needs to block and stall. Not really that terrific of a player, though his form is impeccable; likely the result of his collegiate days under a head coach who would drill the basics for hours...

Height: 190cm | Weight: 124kg | Age: 26 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Rev’ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Right Defensive End**


A sharp contrast to the quiet and polite Vilmerud, Sreya Ro’er is a stereotypical Mando; boisterous, energetic and amazingly intelligent. Known for constantly shuffling about prior to the snap, Sreya serves as a huge distraction on the line, drawing attention to himself and away from the play. Usually works pretty well, considering the amount of mando’a profanities he shouts.

**Note: Plays as Left Defensive End**


Vilmerud is the star player of the defensive line. Incredibly fast and stong, with the ability to make idiots out of most of his offensive counterparts, Vilmerud is as flexible as player as they come. With an impressive work ethic and the manners of a reform school graduate, Vilmerud is a bag of contradictions compared to his first-line counterpart, Sreya Ro’er.

Siliga’s partner on the end, Terhun is a good player, even though he is still in need of work. Whereas Siliga has only played professionally for two years, it has been five years since Terhun was at UO, and they both are on par for development. It may be sometime until Terhan finds himself on the first line, but until then, he seems perfectly content playing second fiddle.

**Note: Plays as Left Defensive End**


Siliga is a solid, all-around defensive end who can play the run and pass solidly. At 25 years-of-age, he is still developing, so expecting a good deal of playing time is not likely. However, he is talented, so you can expect him to show when the time comes...

Following a three season hiatus in which he volunteered to aid the southern regions following the Concordian dissent, Amsilli returned to Enceri a renewed man. He can blitz harder than any man on the line, considering his size when compared to the other monsters who make up the defensive line.

Height: 182cm | Weight: 108kg | Age: 27 | College: Keldabe State University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas
**Note: Plays as Right Linebacker**


Another player whose development continues to this day, Iwuh would have found himself higher in the depth chart had he not had to compete against the likes of Amsilli and Obiozor. He does everything that the two players above him can do just as well, but his speed and knowledge of the game still need to improve before he can place higher.

#53 - MEDMOHA Keim
Height: 190cm | Weight: 111kg | Age: 23 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev’ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Left Linebacker**


Drafted right after the completion of his college season, Medmoha found a home in Rev’ned under his former coach, which is perhaps how he found his way into the National team. He is an average linebacker, nothing fancy or stand-outish about him.

Height: 180cm | Weight: 113kg | Age: 26 | College: University of Omashu | Professional: Taishen Tigers


Syam is a beast of a player; unimaginably strong, incredibly intelligent, and quick on the draw. Still developing as a player, Syam is solid in all of the physical categories of a player, yet it is simply his intelligence which sets him miles apart from his teammates.

Height: 184cm | Weight: 109kg | Age: 23 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


A very capable inside linebacker, Ingirv’s main strength is in covering the middle, however, he is still very capable of pass rushing as well as stopping the run.

#24 - LEYIAB Cyr’oDEFENSIVE CAPTAIN
Height: 182cm | Weight: 88kg | Age: 33 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Hitomori Hawks
**Note: Plays as Left Cornerback**


The most experienced play-making corner available in Gyatso-kai, Ley’iab has the distinction of playing for just a single team in his ten year professional career: Whereas most players end up spending five to six years with a team, Ley’iab beats the odds. Even though he is high in age, he is very fast and has an instinctive knack for placing himself between the airborne ball and the intended receiver. His talent and experience makes him the ranking NCO of the Defence Corps, which many see him as more of a general than as a NCO.

#21 - MADOOGN Rean
Height: 178cm | Weight: 87kg | Age: 33 | College: Keldabe State University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Right Cornerback**


Another seasoned cornerback, Madoogn comes out of Adirolf’s biggest rival at Keldabe State and, given his age, he played plenty of games opposite of Leyiab. As such, he knows his partner’s style very well and the two cornerbacks complement each other vividly.

#25 - RISHA Ris’ch
Height: 177cm | Weight: 86kg | Age: 22 | College: Penoc State University | Professional: Bralin Accipiters
**Note: Plays as Left Cornerback**


The youngest member of the cornerbacks, Risha graduated from Penoc State a semester early so as to qualify for the 2020.3 RGL Draft; finding his home in Bralin in the second round. Risha differs than the first-line cornerbacks in that he is more speed-geared, placing himself easily between the ball and the receiver. While he is not very consistent in getting the interception, he is consistent in keeping the opponent from gaining the first down.

#29 - REMOO Shuajo
Height: 178cm | Weight: 84kg | Age: 23 | College: Hatsu State University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Right Cornerback**


Much like Risha, Remoo is a young freshly-drafted player. Not having played in the professional scene long enough to make any big differences in the games he has played. Even faster than Risha, Remoo can keep pace with the fastest and most agile of receivers and this plays well into the hands of the Boarcupines. Expect to see Remoo come out whenever the defence needs a speed boost.

#32 - TERCAR Onty
Height: 175cm | Weight: 79kg | Age: 25 | College: Adirolf State University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Right Cornerback**


A second-line corner back on the Kamino Cloners behind first-string Remoo Shuajo, Tercar is just another solid corner in the line of the Boarcupines. He does a very good job in the secondary, even though he is fairly unremarkable.

#22 - SYD’QUAN
Height: 175cm | Weight: 86kg | Age: 25 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


A mostly speed-based corner, Syd’Quan is not as physical as his compatriots. Due to his flexibility, he is not listed as a left or a right corner back, and he will often fill the void left by fatigue regardless of what side of the field he is running.

#30 - Vid'da TONBRU
Height: 188cm | Weight: 98kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Strong Safety**


Coming from the Gators two championships teams, Tonbru is an exceptional player. As exceptional as he is, he is still one of the most under-rated safeties of the RGL. This is due to the fact that he is on one of the most prolific teams in the National Conference. Tonbru excels at coverage, but working on the fly has improved his contributions to the team, and he makes for a solid last-ditch tackle against a lose running back.

#28 - TERRAC Tonqui
Height: 184cm | Weight: 90kg | Age: 23 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas
**Note: Plays as Free Safety**


Drafted in the fifth round of the 2020.2 RGL Draft, Terrac comes out of one of the premier educational establishments in Gyatso-kai; earning a 3.88 GPA and a degree in Philosophy, Terrac chose to pursue his sports passion. A solid all-around safety who is at his best when playing a responsibility. Terrac is able to shut down receivers and/or entire sections of the field with the utmost in competence, leaving his backfield partner --- Tonbru --- free to make the big plays.

Another young safety who will likely develop into a major force for the team in a few years, to support the ever-developing Tonbru. A very capable back-up.

Signed to the Bralin Accipiters without even being drafted, Re’om is a remarkable player. However, he is still too young to be able to play consistently, though his form is well defined.

#20 - KINSDAW Nai’r
Height: 182cm | Weight: 95kg | Age: 38| College: Saigon City College |
Professional: Beijing Ironclaws

**Note: Plays as Strong Safety**


The ‘old wolf’ on the line, brought in as an elder to educate the younger members of the defence. He is still a great player, though to aid the youth in development, Kinsdaw has taken a place on the third line. Quite a difference when compared to his ‘Golden Years’ with the Enceri Jets; winning four championships in five years in the early 2000s

The most accurate kicker in the Republic Gaat'shuk League, Prater manages to make nearly 85% of his field goals from 45 yards or more. He has an impressive leg, which is in no doubt due to his time playing summer meshgeroya in a professional league. The coaches never mind, just so long as he doesn't let it interfere with his RGL duties.

An impressive punter who averages 46.2 yards a kick, Quittcol has been a player with some controversy around him since he first stepped onto a field; dealing with spousal issues when first drafted out of UO, and then his off-the-field antics which left many wondering if Quittcol would mature. It took a late-season trade from Imami to the more-structured Troopers of Kyrimorut for the ‘Untamed Beast of the Waterways’ to finally find his place.

DRAWKLAND NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM (GRID CORPS)

World Bowl XXX Champions
World Bowl XXXV Champions


Name: Grid Corps
Colors: Black with Crimson trim
Denonyms: Drawkian or Drawkish, personal preference
SEVENTEENTH World Bowl, Rank #8
Manager: Vincent Lovell
Head Coach: Glenn Romano
Coordinators:
[O] George Connell
[D] Mathis Southers
[ST] Mark Rollins

The former champions of the World Bowl (XXX and XXXV), and current pathetic lame runners-up (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XLI, XLIII): the Grid Corps! They're back at it again, aiming to lose a historic FIFTH World Bowl final!

The entire management and coaching staff, with the exception of Mathis Southers (D coordinator) and some lower-level coaches, has been cleaned out and replaced. Most of these guys are young, forward-thinking guys.

ROSTER / DEPTH CHART
Here's the roster containing the names, numbers, and notes for each player. Players are listed in depth chart order.

After World Bowl XLI, a vast majority of the roster elected to retire from World Bowl play, as they'd been around for like a billion years. Most of the players here are young, being standout rookies or even some players still in college. Growing pains have been happening, but they've made a World Bowl final now together. They're more a cohesive unit than they have been in years. The holdovers from the previous squads (Beck, Hoy, Cross) are the captains as well as the ones expected to lead the team in pretty much every way.

As far as player rotation goes, generally the starters will go for a majority of the match barring cases of injury or fatigue, obviously. A lot of the players on this roster are specialized, exceptionally good in certain situations. Those players are prioritized in those downs and scenarios as necessary, even if they're normally at the bottom of the depth chart.

Now-veteran QB Dustin Beck will play the whole game unless he's injured. At halfback, Jack Hoy will go for most of the game, but expect the next fellas on the depth chart to receive more snaps than they would've in previous WBs. Starting linemen will generally play the whole game. Defensively, the secondary will shuffle after the half on occasion. Some of the front 7 will shuffle as well, but generally Cross will always be in. Merit always kicks field goals and Clacher always does kickoffs. Flan always punts, unless big yardage is needed, then Clacher punts.

STRATEGY
The name of the game for the Grid Corps is aggression and power.

The offense of the Grid Corps is balanced, splitting up responsibilities for yardage between running and passing plays. None is really favored over the other, since everybody on the team is good, but in crucial situations, they're likely to pass more than run (although running is still used to keep the defense honest). The base formation is the shotgun, although the singleback, pistol, and sometimes I are still common. Most shotgun plays are run from a single RB set, although having a FB or another RB in the backfield isn't out of the ordinary. The most common personnel is RB-TE-WR-WR-WR, but the Corps is willing to mix any amount of personnel thanks to the depth and skill at their disposal.

Most running plays are either inside the tackles or just outside them. Stretch runs are rare unless the blocking is on point, or the opposing defense can't stop them. Zone running and power running are evenly split. Fullback-led runs are also very common, especially on third down and in the red zone. A very common play is a triple option out of the I formation: it could be a fullback handoff, a halfback pitch, or a quarterback keeper. The Wildcat formation always shows up a couple times a game, especially if the opposing defense can't stop it. Passing plays have a lot of elements, not necessarily a vertical offense but not necessarily a conservative one either. Deep routes are thrown relatively often to keep the defense honest thanks to the incredible QB and WR talent available. When the game is tight, the Corps is excellent at the hurry-up offense, having a deep playbook to constantly keep the defense off guard.

The defense is also aggressive. Blitzing is very, very common, as the defense is fearless. Even on non-blitz plays, the defensive linemen go all out. Man blitzes on first down are a regularity, especially if it's working. When an opposing offense is stuck inside the five, the Corps will likely come out with everyone except the defensive backs blitzing. Scoring safeties are the pride of the Grid Corps, and thus they'll go for it as much as possible. They'll also pack the line on the other goalline inside the five, but if a team is 3rd/4th and Goal outside of the 7 or 8, they're likely to just pack the end zone with as many defensive backs as possible. When not in goalline formation, they'll usually opt for a 4-man rush. 4-3 and Nickel defenses are Corps staples, unless the situation calls for a change in strategy (obviously). The Corps runs both man and zone evenly, but prefers Cover 2 man. Usually they'll start with man coverage until the team they're playing shows proficiency in beating man, then they'll switch to zone with man and the trademark blitzes thrown in. Zone blitzes on crucial third downs have been known to happen. In all, they aren't afraid to take chances in big spots and bring pressure.

Special teams for the Grid Corps is prone to fake plays. Whether it's a misleading kick return (moving all the blockers to the opposite side of the field from where the ball is going), lateral returns even when the game doesn't depend on it, passes or runs from special teams formations, the Corps practices it all. In addition, the defensive special teams is highly aggressive. Rushing on punt returns, super fast kick blocks, or even line hurdling to block kicks. This is made much easier by the physiology of the Corps of course. David Merit will always do placekicks, Tristan Clacher will always do kickoffs, and Jared Flan will always punt, unless injuries occur. Clacher can also do punts in situations where we need a big yardage kick.

The Corps often opts for two-points conversions for their first few touchdowns. In a blowout win, they'll likely shift to normal PATs after the half. Obviously, they'll go for PATs when the game situation overwhelmingly demands it. The playbook is deep and the number of dynamic playmakers means that two point conversion plays are plentiful and well-rehearsed, hence why they're pretty fearless going for it.

PHYSIOLOGY
I recommend you read this. It contains important information on how Drawkians are different from your average human. In a nutshell, they're over 7 feet tall on average, and have larger proportions to match. Now, they're also lankier and less stocky all-around, but that doesn't mean some like a D-tackle can't get thick and muscular, it's not just not the average build. Now, this may conflict with some of your RPing preferences or make it harder to RP about us, so you're totally free to just ignore that and pretend we're the same as humans. That's totally your call, and I don't mind it either way.

VENUE

The following are just some tidbits from the Ranorian Football League's 2029 and 2030 seasons, which are the most recent and occured between World Bowl 43 and 44. If you'd like a bit more of an overview of the seasons, you can view 2029's here and 2030's here. Enjoy!

RFL 2029 Season, Season Opener
Dietrich Dynamos @ Edmunton Eagles


For those who aren't aware, the Edmunton Eagles aren't exactly your stalwart franchise. Middle of the pack at best, generally aren't challenging for a title. Getting slotted in the season opener against none other than the reigning champions in the Dietrich Dynamos was widely likened to a lamb to the slaughter. Led by NSCF legend Deondre "Diamond" Rhine, Dietrich had gone 29-3 combined in the last two regular seasons and won the championship each time. And while a first team all-pro in wideout Alessandra Mio had left the team in free agency, Rhine still had the best tight end in the league if not the world to throw to in Johnny Farmer.

Well, the Dynamos got the ball first. Deondre Rhine hung back while the rest of the offense took the field to confirm the playcall. And he didn't look like he'd miss a beat without Mio. The only reason the Krauts have ever considered moving on from John Garrett took the snap out of the shotgun, and his first pass of the year was a bomb to none other than Johnny Farmer. He caught it in stride and broke one tackle, and they'd finish off the drive in five plays. Rhine himself was 4/4 for 67 yards with a touchdown pass to cap it off. And not long after, the Eagles found themselves down 14-0 when Rhine hit Farmer for the duo's first scoring connection of the season.

This thing may as well have already been over. With Kraut linebacker Sean Morgan-Horne and Iron Legion starting corner Paul Mattieu itching for an interception, there was no way anyone was throwing their way back into this game. The Eagles went three and out, and Rhine covered his ears to listen to the play come in on his helmet.

He looked back at their coach and tilted his head with a raised eyebrow. When he got no response, he shrugged, and took his place in the huddle.

For those of you who don't know, most teams run their first few plays off a practiced script, so they don't really need a playcall as the whole team has run through those plays several times in practice. This is why so many teams tend to start fast - they're good with those scripted plays.

Well, the Dynamos were out of that stretch now, so Rhine was getting full playcalls.

Do what that information - and the following snippet - what you will.

"Right, so that all sounded like gibberish. Here’s what we’re gonna do guys.” He stood up on a tip-toe to find the ball, and then took a step over to reach it as the play clock continued to wind down.

The rest of the team was confused, but Rhine's antics weren't anything new - and he won games, so it was brushed off. Johnny Farmer, who was the only one who seemed concerned, grabbed his arm to stop him. "Dude, just tell us the play."

The quarterback flashed a grin and shrugged him off. “I am!" He grabbed the football and held it in the middle of the huddle, then began drawing the play out on the skin of the ball like a middle school, recess MVP would. "Now, pay attention. You’re gonna take three steps, then cut inside…”

Penalty flags flew and whistles cut through his attempt at starting a coaching career when the playclock hit zero. Their coach pinched the bridge of his nose on the sideline, and Rhine snickered.

"Oops, anyway, so you'll go he-"

"Holy crap, you don’t know the plays, do you?”

Everyone stopped and stared at Rhine, who shook his head to both sides with a hardly-disguised grin. He didn't last long, and laughed when he offered an explanation that, from his point of view, sounded perfectly reasonable. “Hell no bro! He was saying a bunch of letters and weird words. Like Y, X, stick, lookie, it was whack!”

Johnny Farmer scrunched his eyes closed. Slow breath in. Possibly the deepest, heaviest exhale you've ever seen. "God help me, I miss Alessandra."

He knew the wideout had always given Rhine pointers before each play - but if this was as bad as it looked, he was starting to think she - a wide receiver - had been giving the quarterback the playcalls for the last four seasons.



"Not my best look, eh Chewie?" Rhine's pet owlephant and most loyal companion offered a morose trumpet, and patted him on the head with his trunk. His pet Drawk, Grendel, wasn't as supportive, rubbing at his leg for attention, but of course Mary Puppins - a Great Ranorian Wolfhound that no one is sure how Rhine got his hand on, offered her chin on his lap.

"What happened out there?" Magnus, Deondre's husband, looked concerned. Given Deondre's history with drugs and other illicit activities, his initial thought was that the off-field shenanigans were bleeding onto the field.

"Oh, I just didn't realize how hard it would be to call plays without Alessandra's help," he shrugged it off, "I never really learned our offense. She was super helpful there."

Now, Magnus Rhine was never much of a football player, but he was a fan. And he was paralyzed for a moment as he tried to process what he had just heard.

"You're telling me you never knew the plays?" Each word was slow, separated from the next with the briefest of pauses.

"Dude, I a full game hopped up on enough LSD to kill a small horse in college, of course I never knew the playbook. Frankly I'm insulted and hurt that you didn't know better, we're married! How could you think so little of me?"

"Dude, I hate to break it to you, but that's like, step one of being a high school quarterback. You're gonna have to hit that thing like the heavy bag at the gym. Still don't know why you wanted to take an exhibition fight with Vontaze Ahn of all people.

"It'll be fun! And don't worry, playbooks can't be that hard. If they were, not everyone would do it!"

"Deondre." Magnus snapped, "There are thirty four starting quarterbacks in the Ranorian Football League. The everyone you're referring to consists of hundreds of millions of couch quarterbacks wishing they could be."

"Eh, couch quarterback regular quarterback. Same difference."

RFL 2029 Season, Week 6
Dietrich Dynamos @ Indianapolis Hogs


Deondre Rhine rolled out of the pocket, looking deep - as always - and like he had no idea who he was throwing to - as was often the case this season. Down 34-14 however, he had no choice but to be aggressive, and stiff armed a rusher before lofting the ball to Johnny Farmer.

Now, Johnny Farmer is one of the best players - at any position - in the world. And had he been running a streak like Rhine thought, it'd have likely been a huge gain. But this play was a corner route, and the Dynamos for some reason or another had suffered an obscene amount of miscommunications in the passing game. With Diamond Rhine coming off back-to-back MVP seasons, it was a shocker, and this time it resulted in his fourth interception of the afternoon.

Johnny Farmer did recover enough to make a vicious tackle, nearly knocking the ball loose in the process, but helped his unfortunate victim up before turning to Rhine. The tight end made a clear effort to take a deep breath or two, and glanced back at his college teammate almost longingly before heading to the sideline.

That teammate, John Garrett, stepped onto the field late now in the third quarter. This one was well in hand against Rhine's Dynamos - the Dynamos were coming off the best two year stretch in history, but at the rate Rhine was turning the ball over, they wouldn't go anywhere this season.

His crew was already up 34-14, no reason to try and run it up, but after a pair of handoffs got stuffed for two yards, they had to pass again. "X," Garrett called out to get his top receiver's attention, "Thunder! Thunder!" Jeremiah Fletcher shot him a thumb's up and settled in, covered by rookie corner Paul Mattieu. The kid had potential, but he was clearly outmatched here, and it had shown all game.

Garrett took the snap and gave no indication that he'd be targeting Fletcher, drawing the defense to the flat before turning and rifling the ball to Fletcher just as he came out of his break on a curl route, a low pass that Mattieu never had a chance to defend. Easy first down. And then he felt a very large mass hit him in the back.

Sean Morgan-Horne had come nearly unblocked on the blitz, and quick throw or not, he had decided he was going to get his hit in. Garrett crumbled under the weight of the national-team starter, his body already in an awkward position after the pass and landed in a seated position.

Tough as he is, he barely managed to get to his feet as his offensive line went at the linebacker.

This game was well in hand, and he'd head to the locker room to allow the trainers to take a look. Garrett assured the press that the hit was nothing to worry about at the post-game presser.

An x-ray the next day revealed that he had suffered a compression of his L1 vertebrae, and was likely out until the playoffs at least, if his Hogs could hang onto the 5-1 start he'd led them to.



2029 Ranorian Football League Championship
Indianapolis, Ranoria - Garrett Household


John Garrett couldn't help but be somber, cradling his sleeping daughter, Angelina, as he watched Byron Joseph run wild in the championship.

The Kohnheadian superstar was long overdue for his first ring, and hanging 44 on the best defense in the league to cement it was a hell of a sight. All the passion and moxie he'd shown at Kohnhead City University came pouring out, with cameras zooming in after he threw his third touchdown of the night. Joseph pointed to his ring finger as the score went to 44-30, and embraced a longtime teammate in Herman Whitworth shortly thereafter. There was some silver lining for Garrett - he'd had his fair share of duels with Byron by now, and the kid was a legend in the making. He'd fought like hell for that championship and it was by now long overdue - the fact that it came with his collegiate co-star in Whitworth certainly made it all the sweeter for him.

But Garrett had, of course wanted to be the one celebrating.

Garrett pursed his lips and dipped his head. Two straight World Bowls and three MVP awards, he had his share of hardware. But with only two RFL championships his domestic success just wasn't there. For a quarterback who'd put himself in the discussion for best in the world, much less the league, his lack of total dominance at home was nothing less than shocking.

"She couldn't quite make it through?" Sarah Garrett cut through his monotony, and herself had hardly stayed awake to watch the big game. It was a small affair without any family or friends in the house to join them, but John had no intention of making it to a watch party. Love the sport or not, watching someone else earn the most sought after gridiron title this side of the World Bowl itself stung, and in his physical condition, well, he wasn't fit to move around much anyway.

"No," he scratched at the top of the sleeping kid's head, "Surprised she made it to halftime though." He went to pick stand up with her, and Sarah was up in a flash, pressing down on his shoulder just enough to keep him down.

"And as stubborn as her old man," she chastised, lifting up the rag-doll esque form of their sleeping daughter, "You're not cleared to pick up that much weight for another week, I don't want you aggravating your back."



2030 Ranorian Football League Semifinals

Ranoria City Falcons @ Indianapolis Hogs


This was supposed to be the summit of what was achievable in this league. Every record in the book - granted, mostly his own already - had been shattered. An offense that had averaged nearly forty points per game on an absolute warpath. First seed in the playoffs, John Farmboy Garrett had come back from his latest injury with murder on his mind. He'd even been as vocal with reporters as we'd ever seen him, calling out those who doubted he'd be the same player when he came back when they interviewed him.

And here, it was all slipping away against a team in it's second year after a complete reboot. Head coach Dennis Zervos, quarterback Sarai Gwenderyn, wideout Alessandra Mio, all in their second year with the team.

Garrett ignored the scoreboard that showed he was down 30-15, he ignored the clock that was just ticking down to four minutes left to play, and he took a third down snap with his season on the line. Jeremiah Fletcher was double covered, but protection was good and he was the only deep route called. Garrett knew damn well he had to take the shot, and he stepped up to deliver a bomb of a throw.

Fletcher went up to attack the ball, but the safety overtop him punched the ball from his hands, and the corner underneath just happened to be perfectly positioned to snatch it away.

Ballgame.

He knew it the second it happened - the Falcons were down three running backs, but Zervos, rather than rely some chump off the street, had taken to running a five wide offense and employing Gwenderyn as a runner. It worked. She'd gotten at least eight designed runs in each of their last six games, and in this one she was the one to run the clock down to zero. John Garrett could only watch as the Falcons marched their way to the second massive upset they'd pulled in these playoffs.

He of course shook the budding star's hand after the game, offered her what advice he could, but later he'd admit that he didn't have much to offer. "There's not much I can do that Gwenderyn can't," he offered when asked at the post game presser, "She's as talented as they come, experience is the only advantage I have there."

A strong endorsement from a player who'd just produced video-game like numbers during the regular season. He'd make that his last comment, however. This one had stung and he couldn't hide it forever.

Farmboy kept that stoic demeanor in the tunnel and in the locker room. He wasn't going to let the team see how defeated he felt after this one. Offered a few condolences in the form of "there's always next year."

He'd have to turn it around quickly with the World Bowl coming up soon now, but





Two days after 2030 Ranorian Football League championship
Garrett household
Indianapolis, Ranoria


"John?" Sarah called from the second floor balcony, "How would you feel about going on vacation for a few weeks?"

Now, John Garrett was not a happy camper. And he had a right to that - he'd just had the greatest regular season in RFL history only to be shut down in the semifinal and watch the championship game from his couch.

Regardless, he was currently playing the "try and wake me up" game with his two young children. After all - "Daddy's tired" and "Not right now" are often just met with a "No, come play" in that scenario. Angelina was trying to work her way to his eyes by pulling at his ears, and his son JJ was more interested in trying to pry his arms apart.

Regardless, he lifted his head, ruffling Angelina's hair when she squealed in delight, "Sure honey, where to?"

She didn't answer immedietely, making her way down to the living room and sitting on the couch beside the rest of her family. Just the slightest smirk caught on her lips, and she set Angelina onto her lap as she gave her first suggestion, "Marray is nice this time of year, beautiful beaches over there."

"Where's it at?" He asked, propped his chin on his hands and looking up at her, weary.

"Oh, you've been there before, some country called Tumbra?"

John's eyes went wide, fists clenching immedietely at the thought. "Oh hell no, no. No. Never again. We're not going over to freaking Tumb-" He realized what was going on when Sarah's attempt at restraining a laugh turned into a snort, and he glowered. "Yeah, real funny."

"Daddy! Don't say that! That's a bad word!" Angelina chastised, waggling a tiny finger at him.

"You're right Angie, I'm sorry.'"

"No no no Daddy." She crinkled her brow and pursed her lips in mock anger, and John could only roll his eyes.

"Alright, alright, where were you thinking really?"

"Well there's always Istria..?" She didn't even try hiding it at this point, and John rolled over, covering his eyes with his arm.

"I'd rather cut my..." he stopped, uncovering one eye to see if his children were still there, then changed course, "arm off than put any money into that filthy city's economy unless it's to watch Richardson put them in their place. Not that it's the city's fault, hard to have any sort of class with that university around."

"Oh, you mean Loooyooo-" she strung out the word until he cut her off.

"Don't say it," he snapped playfully, starting to smile himself now and peaking out from under his arm, "We'll have to move if you pollute the air of this house with that name. C'mon now, you've gotta have somewhere in mind."

"Since those don't suit your fancy," she clucked, "Esperance is nice this time of year. Nice little maritime town in Quebec and Shingoryeo. Couple of small resorts, not enough people that you'll be hounded by your adoring fans." She walked over and relieved them of their daughter at least, slinging the youngster over her shoulder to elicit a squeal of delight. "I've heard they've got acupuncture to die for, too, could help a bit with how beat up you are these days, old man."

Garrett winced when JJ suddenly jumped on his head, and offered a strained nod, "Sounds perfect, honey."

Mon Sold National Grid Iron Team
"The Strikers"


Home Colors: (White/Red)
Away Colors: (Red/White)
Home Stadium: Van Nifterik Dome
Style Modifier: +3.0

Staff
Head Coach: Nereo Dykstra (Male, 48)
Former offensive coordinator for the Hassaghast Warhawks, Mr. Dykstra played a pivotal role in that team's return-to-form after several underwhelming seasons, and while never earning them the top spot did put their offensive line as one of the top three in the Professional League. Dykstra's strategy of aggressive rushing, combined with seldom used but clinch passes, are likely to follow him from Hassaghast.

Offensive Coordinator: Kunibert Janzen (Male, 37)
A relatively unknown figure in the Professional League, Mr. Janzen is the former offensive coordinator for North-Central Aberghast Technical College 'Chatterers' and was hired at the direct instruction of Coach Dykstra. The two have a long-standing relationship and both seem to be keen on a rushing focused offense. Janzen is considered Dykstra's second-in-command for all intents and purposes.

Defensive Coordinator: Severin Jonckers (Male, 53)
Considered one of the old guard of the Professional League, Mr. Jonckers was previously a head coach back in the late 90's after the sports ban was lifted. Acquiring the job because of his success in coaching high school ball he shined in the early years when everyone was amateurs, but once professional talent and money began to return to the sport he was overshadowed quickly. Losing his job as head coach of the Cilaghast Krakens left him bitter for years before his return as defensive coordinator for the same team. In this roll he shined by being a tough, no non-sense coordinator who focused on the basics and drilled them into each of his players. His defensive teams were renowned for being completely unyielding and being key to a number of championships by Krakens, and subsequently other teams. His retirement announcement last year was cut short when he was recruited by Dykstra.

Special Teams Coordinator: Jofre Abarca (Male, 44)
Mr. Abarca is one of the founding players of the Professional League, starting his career in the very first draft in the late 90s. During his entire career he was a on the special teams as both a kicker and a punter. He retired in the mid-2010s to much acclaim but never having actually won a title. Despite this lackluster finish, he transitioned to coaching and has made a name for himself sense.

General Manager: Eladio Piraino (Male, 64)
Mr. Piraino has managed teams since the early 2000s, and before that was a successful business man in Lokerstere. Originally he was the manager of the Talenmoor Crusaders from 2004-2010, then the Soraghast Screamers from 2011-2013, and finally Amalrose Hellhounds who he manages to this day. Given the seasonal nature of the Strikers he accepted the position to bring his wealth of knowledge to the field and since accepting the position has been the face of the organization in the run up to the World Bowl.

LS | #38 | Gerolamo Wouters - (6'1", 238lbs, 24) - Manawan Suneaters

Play Philosophy - Wrack and Ruin!
The Striker's philosophy has been dictated by Head Coach Dykstra and focuses around extreme aggression on offensive and slow methodical defense. On offense the team will focus on rushing and rushing hard, handing the ball off to either the agile halfbacks to slip around opposing players, or if the other team is more agile, handing it off the brutish fullbacks who will then simply hammer the ball forward until a first down is achieved. Indeed the mindset is not to make big plays or flashy maneuvers but instead to focus on keeping the pressure on the enemy team during offense but constantly switching things up, and while always looking for a breakthrough, focusing on getting those first downs to keep the ball in the possession, run down the clock, and ware down the other team.

Postby Sarzonia » Fri May 06, 2022 6:54 am

The group draw announcement for World Bowl XLIV drew a few shrugs and collective yawns as the two unranked teams came into focus for Sarzonia. They were going to be in Group F with Kyhun and Venmere.

Defensive end Arlen Cunningham stifled a yawn. He said he thought he'd heard of Venmere somewhere off in the distance somewhere but couldn't quite place it. Strong side linebacker Calvin Jacks was openly dismissive of the two teams, not even trying to hide his lack of concern for either match.

"We should be 6-0 against those teams," he said. "We're probably going to get Evie [punter Evelyn Sutter] some time under centre," he said before bursting out into uncontrollable laughter. Uncontrollable, that is, until the Pot 1 team was revealed. All of a sudden, the eyes that struggled to stay open bolted wide. The yawns ceased as if someone hooked up extra caffeinated Pacitalian coffee via IV. The wide, easy smile on Jacks's face turned grim and glum.

Delaclava would be the Pot 1 team in Group F. The Stars and the Phoenixes would face each other three times, opening World Bowl qualifying play with a match IN Delaclava. They would get a second shot at the Phoenixes at Joe Gibbs Stadium, although stadium organisers were hoping to get the match moved to Dave Wilson Stadium in spite of World Cup qualifying beginning soon.

"Delaclava's going to be a major challenge," a suddenly sombre Jacks said. "We know how good they are. Taurus Wright is one of the best quarterbacks I've faced over the past few World Bowl qualifying campaigns."

Offensively, manager Gavin Davis said he was going to work even more closely with quarterback Cameron Stallworth in the days leading up to the team boarding the train to Delaclava.

"We can't afford to make mistakes," Davis said. "We're going to make sure Cam doesn't get overloaded."

As for Davis, he revealed that Woodstock University manager James Arthur hung up on him, but admitted he called from the office phone.

"I'm still interested in finding a way for him to contribute in a significant way," Davis said of Arthur. He added that he's continued to talk with the Incorporated Gridball Federation about its insistence on Arthur giving up his managerial role with the Climbers, adding that he was hopeful of a breakthrough on that front. However, he admitted that even if he finally won the concession he expected to have during World Bowl XLIII qualifying that Arthur might not be receptive.

"He told me the Board's decision to insist he leave the Climbers left a bad taste in his mouth," Davis said. "Even if they did a 180, he might not want to join us here."

For his part, Arthur did not answer phone calls, emails or texts seeking comment. Sources within the Woodstock University athletic department stated that Arthur was on holiday, coincidentally in Delaclava.

"He needed a break from preparation," said Joella Campbell, a secretary with the Climbers programme. "He left his mobile phone behind and he's probably laying on some beach somewhere right now."

To some, it was a glorious time that saw TJUN-ia pull off an 8-0 Group Stage that will be remembered for a long old time...but on the other hand, some would argue that all that good work was thrown away against Drawkland in the Quarterfinals. We had our best WB yet, climbing to #3 in the rankings, but can we go further..., especially with how old this team was getting now? Gus McKerrin knew that pretty soon, the alumni may have to start to take hold of this team while the old guard eventually decides to retire and while he knows that day will be painful, he also knows that Jake Griffin and the rest of the gang will certainly fight for any sort of immortality they can get. We will play 9 games this time around - 3 at home, 3 away and the final 3 games in a neutral venue in Ranoria in order to determine group control. Playing in three different environments will certainly be interesting and we hope that this team can come through in the end and put up another great season for the gang. GCU nearly did it...can the Jags make it that far themselves?

STADIUM
Name: Field of Dreams in The Gardens
Location: New Washington, NAU Zone
Capacity: 87,000
Image

Part of "The Gardens", New Washington's sporting complex, the Field of Dreams marked the debut of the NAU Zone in hosting U3 international competition. The main purpose of the Field of Dreams was to create an atmosphere where chaos lived and upsets can be made, a fact that was backed up in Game 1 with the "Block 6" over Cassadiagua and the "Kick 6" in the rematch a year later. Those plays were further ingrained into the minds of TJUN-ians due to fact that seats had direct access to the field, allowing the fans to storm it and celebrate with their heroes.

Rank: #9

Play-Style Information
Weakness: Run Defense
Strength: Pass Offense

Team Culture: The Banijans are also well known to be physical, and yet clean, players. While they usually are fairly clean(definitely commit penalties but nothing outwardly dirty, like intentionally injuring players or something), Banijan gridiron culture is extremely proud, and therefore, Banijans are elite smack talkers. They'll talk smack, they'll taunt both opponents and opposing fans, and they'll run up the score, if they are capable. They have a play without fear mentality, and a play to the end mentality- lots of these dudes, stars in their own right, biggest challenge is integrating into a team where they are not at the center. Another challenge, of course, is that both collegiate and professional gridiron rivalries run deep- which can make coming together at the national team level much more difficult in this sport, than it is for Banijan athletes in other sports.

Those challenges can make success difficult at the national team level, as many believe Thomas Hall has 'the toughest job in all of gridiron', to ensure that everybody buys into the common goal, and forgets about themselves as individuals to ensure that they can indeed make this sum greater than the whole of its parts.

Fan Culture Culture: Banijan fan culture around gridiron embodies some of that of the players. People love to talk smack, and therefore, fans are like that as well. Banijan fans are known as arrogant and proud, and they will show up in droves, in any city, wherever it is, to talk over local bars and support their team, even without tickets. Casinos tend to love Banijan gridiron fans, as they willing to put their money where their mouth is, and bet large sums of money on Banijan gridiron success that has always seemed to elude them.

Official Depth Chart for World Bowl XLIV


The rosters is drawn both from the Gridiron Football League of Banija(GFLB), our NSCF teams, foreign NSCF teams, and other Banijan college teams.

Starters are underlined. Players who are receiving their first national team call-up are italicized. Listed in the order of the depth chart.

Offense

Quarterbacks
Ifeatu Chineze. #12. 32 years old. NSCF 18-21 starter for Richardson University(Ranoria) in the NSCF. Starter for the Aissa Crocodiles in the GFLB.
Amazu Chibuzo. #9. 31 years old. Starter for the Busukuma Suns in the GFLB. NSCF 20-22 starter for Loyola-Istria.
Ebou Hairte. #4. 24 years old. Starter for the Lwanga Rhinos in the GFLB. Loyola-Istria alumnus.

When Isaka Jawara retired, it hsd launched one of the most entertaining QB competitions in living memory- Chineze v. Chibuzo. They both were on the roster at World Bowl XLI, but neither of them took a single snap- therefore continuing the anticipation. Chineze was the winner of the most intense position battle in recent memory for Banijan sports fans, and he staked his claim to the QB1 spot. He has held firmly onto his role as the QB1 for the national team since then, with his third World Bowl as the team's starter.

Ebou Hairte, of course, was a two year NSCF starter for Loyola-Istria, and slots in comfortably behind the much more experienced QBs behind them as the team's third string QB. He is trying to impress the coaching staff now, as he knows that Felswyr State QB, Kadesh Odika, although just 18 years old, is waiting in the wings to take his job.

Halfbacks
Kuenda Sello. #21. 29 years old. Graudate of Richardson University(Ranoria) in the NSCF. Team's feature back. Plays for the Rukunbi Wizards.
Christopher Isto. #25. 32 years old. Plays for the Jinja City Springboks.
Elasah Okumu. #20. 24 years old. Plays for the Istria Black Mambas.
Philip Apondo. #23. 26 years old. Plays for the Herzegovina City Cobras.

Running backs are always the first position that are able to play at the professional level. And Sello is poised to take a step forward as the team's feature back, with his fourth World Bowl as the team's starting ball carrier. The offense is set to undergo significant transformation, as they look to spread it out more, but Sello will still be there to establish the ground game, and be an important safety valve for Banija's quarterback.

Wide Receivers.
Chinweuba Jelan. #84, 32 years old. Graduate of Raynor University(Valanora) in the NSCF. Olympian in Track. Plays for the Istria Black Mambas in the GFLB.
Lamin Kah. #81, 31 years old. Graduate of the University of the Commonwealth of Baker Park in the NSCF. Will play for the Kosactus Red Vultures in the GFLB.
Kalu Alazar. #11, 22 years old. 6'4, 221 pounds. Slot receiver. Former four year starter and senior year captain for Kohnhead City University in the NSCF. Will play for the Mukeruzi Hyenas in the GFLB.
Lafi Senghore. #17, 25 years old. 6'2, 190 pounds. Three year starter at Wide Receiver at Loyola-Istria.
Berechiah Ramogi. #87, 27 years old. 6'0, 188 pounds. Plays for Busukuma Suns.

Banija has tried to build their team around stud WRs, and they've got all the talent in the world here. Jelan and Kah are starting to age, however, with this being the first tournament where they may be at somewhere less than the peak of their powers. No matter, though- they've got some young guns coming in behind them. With Kalu Alazar graduating KCU after four years as a WR1 at KCU, and Lafi Senghore now in his second year on the roster, there is a deep and talented WR corps for Chineze to dish the ball to.

Tight Ends.
Zedekiah Akoth. #81, 24 years old. Blocking Tight End. Plays for the Busukuma Suns.
Rada Menasse. #85, 30 years old. Balanced Tight End. Graduate of Northern Moravica University in the NSCF. Plays for the Hoima Zebras in the GFLB.
Corban Aoko. #80, 26 years old. Pass catching Tight End. Plays for the Busukuma Suns.

The tight ends in the Serpent Eagle's offense, historically, simply do not get much attention in the passing game. The Banijans love to use 11 personnel- which is 1 running back, 1 tight end, 3 wide receivers. Like many teams in the modern game, we do not carry a fullback. These tight ends are generally expected to block. And they do their job well. Akoth is an aggressive blocker, both in the run game and pass game, and he helps establish the team's physicality on the line of scrimmage that their head coach, Thomas Hall, so embraces.

With the WR room continuing to get deeper than ever, don't expect many headlines from this TE group. Despite that, they play both extremely hard and extremely physically, and they are willing to basically hit anybody in the mouth.

Left Tackle.
Moses Busara. #65, 25 years old. 6'6, 295 pounds. Four year starter at Cold Hill from NSCFs 22-25. Plays for the Sisonke Leopards.
Chioma Obyke. #69, 30 years old. NSCF XXII & XXIII starter for Northern Moravica. Plays for the Dukuma Dragons.

Left Guard.
Olefile Dithapelo. #64, 33 years old. Plays for Askatasuna Wildcats. NSCF XXII starter for Northern Moravica. Third World Bowl, second as a starter.
Addo Kargbo. #60, 30 years old. Plays for the Lwanga Rhinos. Three year starter at U of Moravica, NSCF XXIII starter at Northern Moravica.

Center.
Jamaal Afiri. #57. 30 years old. Plays for the Busembe Timberwolves. First year as a starter.
Mindika Oduo #50. 22 years old. Two year starter for Loyola-Istria in the NSCF. PLays for the Herzegovina City Cobras in the GFLB.

Right Guard.
Bayou Awash. #68. 30 years old. NSCF 22 & 23 Starter for Loyola-Istria. Plays for the Istria Black Mambas.
Jordan Karamba. #61. 31 years old. NSCF 22 & 23 for Northern Moravica. Will play for the St. Jakob Honey Badgers in the GFLB.

Right Tackle.
Jelani Emeka.#65, 22 years old. Four year starter for Mar Sara Tech in the NSCF at Left Tackle, from NSCFs XXIII-XVI. Plays for the Istria Black Mambas in the GFLB.
Idi Coulibaly. #71, 25 years old. Two year starter for Loyola-Istria in the NSCF(NSCFs 24 and 25). Will play for the Kosactus Red Vultures in the GFLB.

Everything changes, everything stays the same, eh? Plenty of continuity at the skill positions, but not so much on the line of scrimmage. Both starting tackles are brand new, but certainly blue chip prospects. Moses Busara was a dominant force at left tackle for Cold Hill University, dominating at every facet of the game. Jelani Emeka was a similar force at left tackle for Mar Sara Tech. With Emeka having more experience at RT, Busara was placed on the left, with Emeka on the right, to be the anchors for this national team at the tackle positions for at least a few cycles.

With the center also being a first time starter, the experience on this line comes only from the guard positions. There's certainly the talent to take over the line of scrimmage, and the game, whenever they take the field. But will this line have the chemistry or consistency to do just that?


Defense 3-4.

Left Defensive End.
Calamus Otieno. #93, 27 years old. Graduate of the University of Ankole. Starter for the Istria Black Mambas.
Zedekiah Julu. #91, 26 years old. Graduate of Hangaza Tech. Starter for the Hoima Zebras.

Right Defensive End.
Birom Ogunsola #96, 24 years old. Three year starter(NSCFs 23-25) at Northern Moravica. Former Five star recruit in high school. Plays for the Jinja City Springboks
Wassa Ouattara. #90, 29 years old. NSCF XXIV Starter for Northern Moravica. Plays for the Aissa Crocodiles in the GFLB.

Nose Tackle.
Essa Marong. #95, 25 years old. 6'3, 299 pounds. Two year starter at Northern Moravica(NSCFs BLANK-25). Plays for the Rukunbi Wizards.
Sajo Biri. #99, 24 years old. 6'4, 300 pounds. Two year starter at Loyola-Istria(NSCFs BLANK-25). Starter for the Lwanga Rhinos.
Enan Akumu. #98, 31 years old. Plays for Busukuma Athletic Club.

Left Outside Linebacker. (Typically a pash rusher in passing situations- both players at this position are EDGE guys)
Onindo Agot #40, 28 years old. Starter for the Busembe Timberwolves.
Titus Ayange. #55, 22 years old. Starter for the Herzegovina City Cobras.

This team has traditionally been built around their front 7, however, the talent disposition of the team is all out of wack. With the explosion of the offensive game in Banija in recent years, Banija's best talent is on the offensive side of the football- leaving defensive maestro Thomas Hall with the task of getting these guys up to shape. Ogunsola is the only member of this front 4 who is probably of the 'star' caliber. With a scheme built around getting pressure on the quarterback, Thomas Hall is going to have his when he tries to coach and scheme defenders into the backfield to wreak havoc.

This team will substitute often on their defensive line, valuing keeping guys fresh. Like we said above, only Ogunsola is approaching star level talent- the rest of these guys are in the 'good' category when it comes to pure talent levels. However, they know the criticism is coming. Expect them to be both pissed and angry when the games start rolling around.

Middle Linebacker.
Demba Diouf. #47, 29 years old. Starter for Busukuma Athletic Club. Former three-year starter for Loyola-Istria and defensive captain. Second year starter.
Demas Akech. #57, 23 years old. Starter for the Jinja City Springboks.
Isaiah Bryce. #56, 37 years old. NSCF 18, 19, and 20 starter for Richardson University(Ranoria). Captain.
Baturou Jagne. #59, 32 years old. Starter for the Herzegovina City Cobras.

Strong Side Outside Linebacker. (Usually drops into coverage in passing situations)
Moses Luwum. #41, 26 years old. Starter for the Lwanga Rhinos.
Zelotes Ouko. #52, 29 years old. Starter for Umbazi Metropolitan Sporting Club.

It's a miracle that Isaiah Bryce is still playing, on the national team, at middle linebacker, at age 37. Of course, he is not starting anymore- even he is human. But it is a testament to his own tenacity, his freakish athleticism, his extremely careful care of his body, and his flat-out, undeniable talent, that he can be a top 4 middle linebacker in all of Banija at this age. But, like we said, he isn't starting. His body is wearing down some, and he has to be on a limited snap count. So the youth movement comes! Demas Akech will play, and Demba Diouf will play as well, as anchors in the middle. Nobody knows what Bryce's snap count is- maybe 15 or so snaps a game? But expect all of them to make an impact, even if Diouf and Akech aren't quite at Bryce's level.

This makes, of course, the run defense easily the biggest defense for both this defense, and this entirely team in general. Can they stop the run? Can they control the line of scrimmage? Can they knock the other team around?

Cornerbacks.
Makang Secka. #25, 25 years old. Four year starter at Richardson University(Ranoria) in the NSCF. Nicknamed 'the Banijan Ballhawk'. Plays for the Rukunbi Wizards in the GFLB.
Koman Tabor. #39, 22 years old. Four year starter at Cold Hill in the NSCF. Plays for the Jinja City Springboks in the GFLB.
Ayax Kowtame. #25, 23 years old. Starter for the Sisonke Leopards. Primary nickel back.
Ephraim Okomo. #24, 30 years old. Starter for the Askatasuna Wildcats.
Madue Uzoma. #31, 30 years old. NSCF 22 & 23 starter and graduate for Loyola-Istria. Starter for the Askatasuna Wildcats.

Strong Safety.
Hebron Okungu.. #26, 28 years old. Starter for the Mynda Gorillas.
Ganya Ikhanda. #27, 23 years old. Starter for the Istria Black Mambas

Free Safety.
Ozioma Mazzi. #19, 22 years old. Four-year starter at Felswyr State in the NSCF. Will play for the Port Stovine Sea Turtles.
Dabu Cakaza.. #20, 22 years old. Starter for Bunyoro Regional Sporting Club.

And now, for the secondary. The defense's remake is much different than has ever been seen before. Traditionally a team that has been anchored by the talent of its front 4 and front 7, it is now a team that is defined by their depth on the pass defense- much to the delight of former RFL Defensive back, and current Banijan head coach, Thomas Hall. Makang Secka and Koman Tabor are as good as a 1-2 punch at CB as you'll find, with both of them being lockdown corners in Ranoria for four years at the NSCF level before going pro. Thomas Hall is excited at their pairing, as he says the two CBs are 'elite'. "At every phase of the game, Tabor and Secka have an elite level understanding. They have the physicality, the quickness, the will, the desire, to succeed against everybody and anybody."

Expect the secondary to be both physical and aggressive, as well as Thomas Hall to trust his corners in man to man defense, so he can help out his front 4 by blitzing his linebackers.


Special Teams.

My punter is the holder for field goals, just to be clear. My punter does normal kickoffs while my kicker does onside kicks. Lastly, my kicker is my backup punter and my punter is my backup kicker, just in case you RP an injury to one.

Long Snapper
Bishaar Kaynaan. #61. 28 years old. Plays for the Herzegovina City Cobras in the GFLB.

Kick/Punt Returner.
Chinweuba Jelan. #84, 32 years old. Graduate of Raynor University(Valanora) in the NSCF.
Ganya Ikhanda. #27, 23 years old. Starter for the Istria Black Mambas. Backup strong safety.

Kicker.
Komani Achaje. #3, 34 years old. Maximum range is somewhere between 50 and 63 yards. Starter for the Istria Black Mambas.

Punter.
Travis Galubasi #2. 33 years old. Starter for the Sisonke Leopards.

Let's start with the exciting stuff. Jelan is a superstar athlete. He had four touchdowns in a NSCF playoff game, a 35-17 win for Raynor University of Valanora. He can beat you any number of ways, and is a terror in the open field. He's exactly the kind of guy that Banijans want returning the ball, and opponents would be at their best to kick the ball away from him.

Now, as for kicker and punter. As a fan, you never want to think about these positions. But we have veteran and returning starters at both kicker and punter. Hopefully, this will not be a position that the Serpent Eagles are thinking too much about.

The long snapper, of course, is new this time around. That is definitely a name you never want to know as a fan. But his chemistry with the punter is going to be crucial, on kickoffs and field goals.


Head Coach: Thomas Hall(Ranoria). 58 years old. The Olympic Committee of Banija, frustrated with failure after failure of Alastair Jobs, the legendary Loyola coach, after his World Bowl 37 semifinal run, has finally forced Jobs out. The Banijans believe that they have the talent to get into the knockout stages of major tournaments, prepping to make deep WB runs within a tournament or two- whether they should or not, is another question entirely. They also felt they needed a culture change- a coach with a record at the professional level, rather than a college coach.

After searching long and wide, they looked to Ranoria, one of their football rivals, to find a coach. The opposite of Alastair Jobs. As a player, Hall was the career leader in the Ranorian Football League with 62 career interceptions. He had immediately success. The Banijan national team didn't make the knockout stages at either World Bowl 38 or 39, and it was the group stage elimination at the Istria Olympiad that got his predecessor fired. Thomas Hall, however, hit the ground running. Changing the team's focus from a spread 'em out speed team to more of a power team, he went 10-0 in the group stages of World Bowl XL, and took the Serpent Eagles to their first ever World Bowl final.

After a quarterfinal appearance at World Bowl XLI, he said it's time to revamp the team's offense. "We've got stars on the outside with Lamin Kah and Chinweuba Jelan on the outside- we can't let that go to waste." Whereas Banija has been ground and pound for the last two tournaments, expect them to lean more towards spreading around the football and lighting up the scoreboard, to take advantage of the star players they have at the skill positions on offense. However, the revamp hasn't worked thus far, with a quarterfinal elimination to Ranoria at World Bowl XLII, and a stunning first round playoff exit to South Newlandia at World Bowl XLIII.

Because of the team's regression, the honeymoon is now over for Thomas Hall. It's his fifth cycle, and while nobody ever issues ultimatums out here, it simply doesn't need to be spoken- get back, at minimum, to the quarterfinals, or World Bowl 46, he'll really be on the hot seat. Some believe that Banija has fallen from the ranks of the elite, and some believe that last cycle was simply an abberation. Who will be right? With the pressure rising, of course, Hall is taking more responsibility into his own hands, to be the master of his own destiny.

Offensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Kopo Bogadi. 44 years old. The fifth cycle for Thomas Hall, and after a disappointing tournament last time, changes needed to be made. And so he decided to change his tune. His old offensive coordinator was fired, and Kopo Bogadi, at 44 years old, was hired to run the national team offense. He is a proponent of a high tempo, run'n'gun, and he has been given full control of the offense. "I am thankful to Hall for this opportunity, and I am sure that, with all this talent on offense, we will be able to succeed at quite a level here at this tournament."

OF course, Thomas Hall is still the head coach, so it's not like he's going to start having a 75/25 pass/run split. But expect them to focus on getting the ball through the air, and ensuring that Ifeatu Chineze has the tools to succeed here at this level.

Other notable Offensive Staff: Former NSCF 14 and NSCF 17 champion, Loyola alum running back Justice Greenspan is the running backs coach. He is 50years old. 53 year old Ugonna Chioma is the Quarterbacks Coach. 61 year old Uchey Akachi is the Wide Receivers Coach. 60 year old Beluchi Chika is the Offensive Line Coach. And 42 year old Mamadi Diene Jr.(the former offensive coordinator's youngest son) is the Tight Ends Coach.

Defensive Coordinator: David Franklin. 56 years old. David Franklin was a starting middle linebacker on Loyola-Istria's NSCF 14 title team, and he was a defensive captain on Banija's run to the World Bowl XXXVI semifinals. With the defensive coordinator from the last two tournaments taking his talents to South Newlandia to become head coach at Elephant Valley University, Franklin got the promotion. Having a stellar playing career domestically and being a longtime national team assistant, it is seen as his turn.

After two tournaments calling plays, however, Thomas Hall has decided to take the reigns on defense- the head coach will serve as the defensive play-caller. It will be an adjustment in dynamic, of course, but David Franklin does not see it as a problem. "There will still be plenty for me to do, even if Hall is calling the plays himself." Said Franklin in a press conference. "I am going to support him, and I am willing to do whatever it takes, even if it includes giving up calling plays, to put this defense, and this team, in a position to succeed."

Other notable defensive staff: Faraji Moyo is the linebackers coach. He is 47 years old. 50 year old Diji Jel is the Defensive Line Coach. 63 year old Chizoba Izuchukwu is the Safeties Coach. And 57 year old Fodazi Manqoba is the Cornerbacks Coach.

Special Teams Coordinator/Strength & Conditioning Coach: Iyoas Motuma. 60 years old.

Stadium of the Restoration
Image
Location: Busukuma, National Capitol Region, Banija. Capacity: 91,835

The Stadium of the Restoration is the country's national stadium, used primarily for both gridiron and association football. It is located in the northern part of Busukuma, Banija's capitol city. It is built between the "northern hills of Busukuma" where Banija's first independence was declared, an event known as the restoration of the Banijan monarchy. It is a revered and hallowed stadium for sports fans throughout the country.

A number of major events have been held here, including two World Bowl Finals, a Baptism of Fire Final, a Cup of Harmony Final, two AOCAF Finals, an IFCF Champions League Final, and the opening matches of two World Cups, as well as two World Cup semifinals. Furthermore, it has hosted multiple NSCF bowl games, as well as the NSCF Championship game. It is also the site of the annual BGFL National Championship Game. It is the regular home stadium for both national football teams, gridiron and association. The stadium, rebuilt shortly before World Cup 81, which Banija co-hosted alongside the Free Republics, has a turf gridiron field that lies underneath the grass soccer field.

Traditionally, Banija would rotate their home games around the country. However, for World Bowls XL-XLII, they played all their home games at the national stadium. With the team spreading games across the country across the last World Bowl, they will continue to do so at this tournament, despite only having three home games at this World Bowl. Busukuma, Istria, and Lwanga will be the three cities that host the Serpent Eagles, with Lwanga hosting in a dome.

Anthoran National Gridiron Team
" Celridge Voodoo "


The Celridge Voodoo, also called the Voodoo, V's or Vengeful V's, are the national gridiron football team that represents the Anthoran Gridiron League, the highest level of play domestically for the sport, and the Kingdom of Anthor on the international stage. They originally made their debut in the World Bowl in WB32 and have made a near consecutive run up to the 41st edition, ever since they have neglected to attend the tournament and focus instead on building more competitive team, part of which included building a multi-million pound complex centered around their stadium which includes states of the art training facilities. Head coach Joel Turnbull has been retained on a contact that will cover till the 47th edition, and many anticipate that big success is expected in return for the investments over the last three years, probably one target being improving their international ranking into the Top 20. Nicholas Harriot will remain the captain of the V's as they chase this success, coming off of his third championship ring with Monmouth over the last season and will be joined by a number of other quarterbacks, this V's roster will actually be the largest ever, probably in attempt to spread game experience as much as possible. Nearly all of the starters are AGL All-Star's, but there are a few exceptions.

World Bowl 44 - Ko-orenite National Team
Image


Coaching Staff
Stij Batterink (head coach)
Offence: Val Hardman (offensive coordinator), Simon Palmsterk (QB), Yv Garnier (RB), Teonnach yLawdmell (WR), Olivier Olander (OLine)
Defence: Luc Jauffret (defensive coordinator), Stewart Cropp (DLine), Tednawf yGastaff (LB), Listenau Jenurdherinden (DBacks)
Special Teams: Duncan Huckstep (ST coordinator)

Offence

A run-first offence under Arerira has been turned into a short passing game under Masman. The run is in great hands, the passes will mostly go to TEs and slot receivers (SR). Fullbacks, always a staple, are taking a step back, while the TEs flourish.

QB Pier Masman (23) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a adventurous lanky game planner
QB Aolif Arerira (35) - Aerellen Explosions, a inspired short game planner
QB Kageera Ingdon (24) - Mawryshire Centaurs, a resentful short pocket passer

Normally, we have three QBs with different ideas about how the game should be played and how results are earned. This time though, we have the first outing of a generational talent: Masman. Picked up by the lucky Sterrenwolde squad, Masman plays slightly risky, but tends to know quite well who his weapons are and how they should be used. If he gets overconfident, he does make mistakes due to age. We then have Arerira, who isn't as tall and runs the Explosions' run first offence (and happily participates in that as a triple threat - at least, back when he wasn't in his mid 30s). Ingdon is also quite young, but in true Centaurs fashion he's a fantastic accurate deep thrower, if the game calls for it.

FB Doninak Soserindhen (27) - Mayara Destroyers, a evasive agile speed back
FB Jonas Wilson (27) - Greencaster Godspeed, a wise nimble daredevil

We have better fullbacks, but they're in their 30s, and are on their last season or so. Hence Soserindhen and Wilson: Wilson has some experience at this level already. The offence should rely a little less on this position, which is often seen as a true all-round position: run, catch, block.

RB Alastair Thorebourne (28) - Greencaster Godspeed, a dim skinny trickster
RB Spencer Galway (32) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a brave stocky speed back
RB Garathen Jurethen (30) - Mayara Destroyers, a silly stringy showman
RB Sidney Paterson (28) - Noordrug Astronauts, a confrontational beefy speed back

More old players, but at the running back position this time. Thorebourne and Galway are the best RBs we've had in decades, with the former a little more all-round and the latter being too pacy to tackle. Jurethen and Paterson complete the committee, who are a little beefier and can power through the trenches.

TE Kas Voorhorst (29) - Aerellen Explosions, a childish stocky yac artist
TE Chamchawdd yMaellceoff (25) - Willowbourne Saints, a martyr stocky yac artist
TE Max Maret (28) - Mayara Wolves, a intelligent petite yac artist
TE Kechish Narlash (22) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a modern quick dynamo

In absence of great fullbacks, there are more TEs on roster. Three elusive receivers with decent blocking capabilities, it's Voorhorst, yMaellceoff, and Maret, who have no trouble getting the ball in traffic and getting a few more yards out of it. Then there's Narlash, who escapes towards the sideline more often than not, hoping to use his speed there. Based on this personnel group alone, the offence as a whole will be a lot more short pass-oriented (with a decent running game) rather than getting chunk plays.

WR Egge Gasbeek (25) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a predictable toned workhorse
WR Bryan Welsh (26) - Willowbourne Saints, a shy well built workhorse

The Great Receiver Shortage continues, and with more backs and tight ends, that means fewer roster spots for the X-receivers on the outside. We have Gasbeek, who can go all day, and Welsh, who can also go all day. Gasbeek's stamina and strength is especially remarkable. As far as showy and unlikely catches go: these are not the guys to get those.

SR Giles Costigan (23) - Aminey Caspians, a flaky portly workhorse
SR Lloyd Whitlock (32) - Mayara Destroyers, a intellectual buff deep threat

For slot receivers, we finally have someone other than Whitlock at this position. Sure, Whitlock will still get a lot of snaps (including at X-receiver), but Costigan is a rare talent, with ups and downs, but potentially the main focal point of this offence.

LT Aenieme Arenna (27) - Greencaster Godspeed, a foolish pacy teammate
LT Sibren Schooten (33) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a boring bony gladiator
LG Auhonen Haustedhaungen (26) - Eaglebury Emperors, a resentful muscular strongman
LG Aerili Allacea (23) - Aerellen Explosions, a reserved muscular all-rounder
LG Xenxo Fragoso (32) - Mayara Destroyers, a resourceful tall gladiator
CE Mert Molemans (29) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a conscientious agile strongman
CE Adé Gavreau (31) - Willowbourne Saints, a humorless muscular all-rounder
RG Otho Tilcott (26) - Eaglebury Emperors, a anxious short strongman
RT Olinosuke Vuluja (29) - Mayara Destroyers, a confrontational slender teammate
RT Elisha Witvos (31) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a clever bulky run blocker
RT Nathan Schildwacht (28) - Willowbourne Saints, a impractical petite teammate

Typically, the top man at each position starts. Arenna never really impressed until last season, and now he's named as the best tackle in the league. Fragoso and Allacea can take snaps as RG. Gavreau should have as many (if not more) snaps than/as Molemans, but Molemans is a little cleaner in his approach. The right tackle position is stacked and all three players can take over at other positions on the line. In 6 man O-line situations, that's where the 6th man will come from. There's a bit of everything: run and pass blocking is roughly equal. The coaches will always look to find same-team partnerships (Gavreau-Schildwacht, Fragoso-Vuluja), but they were few and far between. Then they just went with the best men for each position.

Defence

It's one of the multiverse's most feared units, and for good reason. Good at the basics, with a solid gameplan that every player knows and can carry out, and looking for turnovers: good luck getting through them. They are multifaceted, confusing, and pressure can come from anywhere. They will show one coverage pre-snap and do something completely different post-snap.

RE Tausurlun Hanalaunden (26) - Noordrug Astronauts, a boring fit workhorse
RE Jon Mulders (33) - Aerellen Explosions, a lucky hard-hitting pass rusher
RD Boaz Avink (31) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a sincere hard-hitting workhorse
RD Veja Stroo (32) - Mayara Destroyers, a noncommittal heavy pass rusher
RD Tore Akerstroom (29) - Noordrug Astronauts, a opportunistic slender pass rusher
LD Maukiliru Gomoltinden (31) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a good lanky workhorse
LD Mablw yTaddwadd (23) - Eaglebury Emperors, a clever stringy lane clogger
LD Hubbe Braakjans (32) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a irrational powerful workhorse
LE Simon Binnenpoorte (36) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a sensible ripped stunter
LE Leon Ahern (26) - Aerellen Explosions, a practical staunch showman

The line calls for a 3-4 defence. In that case, the RD and LD lists collapse into a single NT list, and man, there's a lot of good things there. Avink, Stroo, Akerstroom, and Gomoltinden are special athletes. The left end (LE) position is very shallow, and the same can be said (to a lesser extent) about the RE position. It wouldn't even be weird to put three RD/LD (right defensive tackle, left defensive tackle) on the line and have that form the basis for a 3-4 defence. yTaddwadd's ability to stop the run will be instrumental for that. Basically: the RDs and LDs will have a lot to do, while the RE and LE will be slightly less busy.

WB Edward Darknoll (28) - Eaglebury Emperors, a moralistic buff blanket
WB Louw Hagendoorn (23) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a independent plump spy
WB Seymour Cause (34) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a modern staunch blanket
MB Reuben Ramsbottom (29) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a solemn tiny blanket
MB Hamilton Ezekiel (35) - Eaglebury Emperors, a amicable heavy blanket
MB Toon Fokke (35) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a mature toned blanket
SB Gabe Henry (34) - Greencaster Godspeed, a sympathetic short tactician
SB Toshiyoshi Hirate (22) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a tough swift tackler

In a 3-4, it's usually two middle LBs. It could also be WB-WB-MB-SB. The WBs will be in charge of spying or pass coverage slightly more often. Whereas the strength of the Ko-orenite defence often started with these guys, it's looking like everything comes down to the secondary. That said, Henry and Darknoll are incredible athletes that can disrupt offences pretty much by themselves.

LC Herman Jennings (25) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a neutral athletic communicator
LC Elwood Guillan (29) - Mayara Wolves, a sensible bony tactician
LC Camille Dutertre (29) - Aminey Caspians, a moralistic athletic tactician
RC Jalu Vigouroux (29) - Mawryshire Centaurs, a deceitful lanky communicator
RC Aelithage Ecaliris (32) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a fearless athletic tactician

FS Aoradora Aurisea (23) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a amiable nimble opportunist
FS Magne Binnenmars (28) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a discreet hard-hitting tackler
SS Dhauthenu Turaundhinthen (30) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a devious stringy tackler
SS Chilra Minjarrah (34) - Eaglebury Emperors, a sincere pacy communicator

And there it is. The secondary. The reason why nobody should want to play us. Smart, communicative, yet also agile and fast, whatever group is on the field, they're ready for everything an offence can throw at them. All of these guys are stars.
Special Teams
LS Elothe Aecherin (31) - Mayara Destroyers, a shy slender specialist

PK Abner Bennett (34) - Greencaster Godspeed, a mature buff specialist
PK Niels Oordveld (29) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a paranoid trim all-rounder

PR Go Bronsvoord (26) - Greencaster Godspeed, a honest toned all-rounder
PR Clé Moreau (26) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a lazy fit all-rounder
PR Aoelea Arile (24) - Willowbourne Saints, a cruel burly specialist

PU Dhaungekun Tadhinthen (30) - Mawryshire Centaurs, a careful swift all-rounder
PU Ginaurstu Baurerningun (26) - Mayara Wolves, a uncompromising lanky specialist

Bennett and Tadhinthen will take every snap at their positions, with the backup listed just for emergencies. The returners can take snaps at RB or (in some cases) FB.

High Schools in Chromatik High School Gridiron - Origins Behind the Unique Mascots, Part 1

Rainbow District
Diamond Conference
Lanar Central High School Bikers - During the days of the Rainbow Revolution, the city of Lanar, then known as Deprí Lanar, was taken over by a gang of bikers known as The Discordant Few. Though not explicitly with the Rainbow Revolution, The Discordant Few didn't get in the way of the RR, and absolutely didn't tolerate the Chromatik Party from establishing a foothold in the city. The Discordant Few still are around, though in a bit of a less militaristic fashion, mostly focusing on community outreach and a safe place for the troubled youth in the city to grow up properly. When Lanar Central High School was founded, the school district board decided to pay homage to The Discordant Few, and chose the name, "Bikers".
Twin Cities High School Gemini - Located in Pelar, halfway between Lanar and Sanar, Twin Cities High School is named as such due to being near both of the major cities of the Rainbow District. There was talk about other mascots - Roosters, Railways, etc., but when it came down to it, Lanar and Sanar, the Twin Cities of the District, are worth naming a mascot after by itself. So, Gemini was chosen - and the actual mascot is two figures - one dressed in red and the other in blue.

Pearl Conference
Knetyohai City High School Peregrines - The peregrine falcon is the fastest bird, sometimes reaching over 320 kph when it dives. When Knetyohai City High School was looking for a mascot, the board decided on peregrines to pay homage to that speed. Unfortunately, none of the sports programs have done very well so far in the school's eight year history, but if they ever do, there's a lot of ready-made headlines to highlight their speed.
Penat High School Understudy - A very strange mascot name, isn't it? An understudy in theatre is someone who follows the lead and only steps in in case of emergencies; how does that fit a high school mascot? Penat High School was an afterthought during the days of the Chromatik Party, as the First Division High School in downtown Penat and the Regal High School in the northern outskirts got all the love. However, during the Rainbow Revolution, the Chromatik Party blew up both high schools instead of letting the Revolution take control of them, making it so that Penat High School became the primary high school of the city. The moniker "Understudy" harkens back to those days of humble origins.
Jerome A. Samuelson High School Mimes - Besides starting Jerome A. Samuelson high school, Mr. Samuelson also was one of the founding members of the Chromatik Football Federation, donating more than $500 million NSD to the endeavor after the Rainbow Revolution. Though he died due to a stroke a decade ago, Viktor Karras, Jr., the Chairman of the Chromatik Football Federation, calls Samuelson "A visionary ahead of his time" who wasn't shy to take risks, especially when it came to putting money where his mouth is. He is survived by his wife, Maria, and his two sons - Jackson Samuelson, majority owner of the Chromia Comets of the Frenei Chromatik Baseball League, and Nicholas Samuelson, Dean of Athletics for Felswyr State University. The Samuelson name lives on with pride. After his stroke, he lingered on for two months before finally passing, and during that time, he couldn't speak, leading to him signing and miming. Jerome A. Samuelson High School keeps the name "Mimes" to honor his memory.
World Bowl 44 - Group Preview

The Iron Legion, top seeds in their Group, fourth ranked in the world, drew Kohnhead, Mon Sold, and United Adaikes in their nine-game group stage. After the home-and-away, they'll head off to Ranoria for the final three games, and hopefully the playoffs.

Chromatika has a large advantage when facing Kohnhead. Across all matchups, Kohnhead has only defeated Chromatika twice in all matchups, as Kohnhead City University's record against Felswyr State University sits at 2-5. Chromatika also defeated Kohnhead in the playoffs of World Bowl 42 Quarterfinals by a score of 46-23. Notably, Byron Joseph has never defeated Sarai Gwenderyn. The Iron Legion will host the first leg, go to Kohnhead on the second, and then play the third in Ranoria. It will be entertaining to see the Iron Legion play the Brains three times - and the squad will hope to at least go 2-1.

Mon Sold is a newcomer to the World Bowl, making their debut. The Strikers pride themselves on extreme aggression and a methodical defense. They'll run the ball a lot, but that plays directly into The Iron Legion's hands. Go ahead, try to run the ball against Park Mi-Hyeon and Jere Rinaldi, or try to find the edge against the speed of Cara Setri and Randy Mett. The Iron Legion will expect to dominate all three matchups, but the Strikers will have nothing to lose - meaning they can't overlook the team at all.

Last but not least is the team from United Adaikes. Starring Silverleaf University players and others making their start, they're another up-and-coming team trying to break the limelight that the Iron Legion should handle without a problem.

Honestly, The Iron Legion should win at least seven of their games, if not all nine. They're ranked #4 in the world for a reason, and it's time to remind everyone of that.
Lightning Doesn't Strike Twice
Part 1: The Diagnosis


Six months before the World Bowl
Chormia General Hospital
Chromia, Capital District, Chromatika


The waiting room at Chromia General Hospital's neurology department was clean. A little too clean. There were spacious couches, water fountains, bathrooms around the corner, lights that were bright but not overbearing, and a series of monitors - both of TVs to help those who needed to pass the time as well as other screens that actually mattered in the day to day operations of the clinic.

Sara McAllister Drumov sat in one of the couches next to her husband, Michel Drumov. This was her scheduled biannual checkup to see how her Chronic Pain Syndrome was going, and depending on the result, there would be some ramifications.

After announcing her abrupt retirement. Sara McAllister had retired to the Drumovs' residence in Felswyr, where she used her media degree to become a film critic and he continued to be one of the foremost ornithologists in Chromatika, becoming an expert on Chromatik birds. His work caught the attention of many a newspaper in the country, and there were offers from the Chromia Central Courier and other such publications to interview Michel, but his eyes were only on Sara. The two got married in a private ceremony with just their loved ones a few months later, and both of them continued to live the quiet life.

Now almost four years after the event that eventually took her out of gridiron football, the doctors and experts all agreed that the condition that Sara McAllister had was unique. In fact they had begun to start calling it the "McAllister Syndrome" after her. It was true that the more stress she put on herself both mentally and physically, the more pain she would feel; there were a few times where she almost blacked out. They put her on some medication to help with the pain, but needed further research to try to find out what could possibly be going on and how to combat it.

Three days ago, they'd come up to Chromia for Sara to go through some extensive tests. Now, they were awaiting the results.

A nurse stepped out of Dr. Yang's office and ushered the two inside. Yang Jo Mi, Ph. D., was a cheerful, kind elderly lady with gray hair starting to show through her auburn black hair. In Dr. Yang, the young couple had found a kindred soul that really wanted what was best for Sara and the Drumovs as a couple. At first glance, Dr. Yang looked lost in thought as Sara and Michel took the seats in front of her.

"Ah, yes," started Dr. Yang, "Thank you for waiting. I have good news and I have interesting news. What do you want to know first?"

Michel and Sara exchanged a glance before he motioned her to go ahead.

"The good news first, please," said Sara, a bit nervous.

"Your condition isn't getting worse," explained Dr. Yang, "The synapses that trigger the pain in your brain remain the same, and the pain itself doesn't seem to have increased much since our last visit. That's good - it means that there may be a possibility of learning how to live with the condition. It also means that you'll have a choice to make when it comes to how you want to live with the condition, which is the interesting part."

"What do you mean, Doctor?" asked Michel as his left hand found Sara's right, and the two squeezed in celebration, "Is there a way for Sara to return to a normal lifestyle?"

"That depends on what you want to try," answered Dr. Yang, "We know of some drugs that can help in the situations where the flares do happen, and we can monitor her condition by checkups over the phone, but since we now know what to expect and how to take care of it, there is a chance that she can go back to facing the public and becoming a member of society in a way that she wants. Now, I don't recommend going back to such a high pressure situation as playing in a gridiron game, but something that's not as drastic as being on the field itself is a very possible alternative."

"I don't know about that," expressed Michel, before Sara cut him off.

"Thank you, Doctor. I'm sure we'll have a lot to talk about. Do you mind if we give you a call after we've decided on the best course of action?"

As the two abruptly left, Dr. Yang thought back at the conversation. Of course, Sara would like to return to gridiron in some capacity. But did Michel not want that for his wife?

Not that it ultimately mattered to her. She'd conveyed the news. It was up to them on what they'd do next.

What Yang Jo Mi did not know was that she'd just given one of the best kickers in the world a reason to try to fight to be part of the team again, and all that stood in the way was one worried husband.

Delaclava national football team


  • Two-time World Bowl champion (13 and 15); three-time third place (41, 42, 43)
  • Four-time previous host (11, 15, 39, 43)
  • Undefeated champions of WB15
  • Former World #1 ranking, current #2
  • #3 in all-time Golden Bowl standings
  • Champion of demonstration event at IV Olympiad in Aeropag
  • Champion of Atlantian Oceania Bowl 5

Overview

The second-ranked Phoenixes find themselves at somewhat of a crossroads, falling short in a semifinal for a third consecutive time, in destructive fashion on its own field. They're undoubtedly the best team in the world, apart from one notable exception, and blitzed through the group stage in preparation for the Delaclava World Bowl, but this team seems destined to either push forward or fall back. Dual-threat QB Taurus Wright returns, arguably the best in the world at his position, with Michael Willis as capable a backup as ever. The receiver core sees veteran Kevin Alés depart but retains breakout star Justin Vandaele as well as Andre Michel and Charlie Coffin, while Noah Simmons and David Conley provide a formidable ground presence alongside Wright.

The quick, blitz-heavy defense sees some established studs combined with fresh new talent. Prince Rose, Jesse Rhine, Brian Bullard, and Luke Kennedy head up the front seven with great speed and tenacity, while the imposing presences of Thomas Schuttler and Vagner Dias promise to take the defense to a new level. Tate Parker and Luke Mussett once again take charge of the secondary. Kieran Conley remains as a highly accurate place kicker from inside 45.

The coaching staff remains unchanged, yet the pressure is on to push past the status quo. Frank Newman of the Mannheim Rockets returns as head coach alongside the Corcorran Hammers' Nate Hines as defensive coordinator, and former All-Tournament offensive coordinator Kim McClain in the same role. Newman takes a more conservative approach, trusting his defense to make stops instead of going for unfavorable fourth-down conversions, but Newman will also let his playmakers loose when the offense nears paydirt.

The Phoenixes tend to start strong, but can have trouble both in coming back from deficits and from "game management" with a small lead. They have the mettle and the experience to hold on. Mentally, who knows what two semifinal losses to Ranoria will do to them when the tournaments gets later and the stakes mount...

Defensive Formation: 4-3-3 (with some 4-4-2 and 3-4-4)
Style Modifier: +3 - pass-oriented, with a lot of option plays and play action, high-risk high-reward mentality
