The Scouting Report
In 2012, Gladiators wide receiver Dominick Goodman torched opposing defenses to the tune of 1,782 yards and 34 touchdowns. In 2013, he hasn't stopped. Ranked amongst the league's top three wide outs in receptions per game—he averages nearly 10—Goodman has cemented himself as one of the Gladiators' most sensational offensive threats and their best candidate to catch a cat falling out of a tree. Last month, Goodman added another accolade after being recognized as the J. Lewis Small Playmaker of the Week award for his performance on June 7. In that game, he recorded a franchise-record 18 catches and scored a touchdown for the sixth-straight game.
The July 20 showdown doubles as Bernie Kosar Night, where the first 5,000 fans to enter the stadium will be rewarded with a t-shirt celebrating the former Cleveland Browns Pro Bowler. To show their appreciation for their supporters after the game, Gladiator players will also hand out game-worn jerseys to lucky fans, a perfect garment to wear when trying to crash a private homecoming party.
From 1992–1994, the Cleveland Thunderbolts gave the city its first taste of Arena Football League action. And while the taste was but a tease at the time—the team disbanded at the end of the 1994 season—AFL fans eventually would see a return to revelry in 2008 with the arrival of the Gladiators, a team that bounced around the country like a rock band on pogo sticks before diggin’ in their cleats at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena. In their first official season, the Gladiators introduced themselves in grand fashion by advancing to the franchise's first-ever conference championship game—a tough loss, to the eventual league champion Philadelphia Soul, that’s since stood as the squad’s humbling reminder of the unending effort required to achieve league dominance.
