The Scouting Report
The Haymakers kick off their inaugural season on March 17 as part of the Midwest-based Champions Pro Indoor Football League. Less than two weeks later, the team will play its first home game at the Pershing Center. Former Nebraska Cornhuskers standout running back Marlon Lucky headlines a roster of talented athletes. Seven other former Huskers have joined Lucky, including defensive backs Andre Jones and Cortney Grixby, who has spent time with several NFL teams. Much like a flash mob organized by Congress, the rest of the roster features representatives from across the country, including from major universities such as Kansas, Arkansas, and Iowa State.
At Lincoln’s historic Haymarket, visitors relax with time-honored forms of entertainment, such as taking in a play or browsing the farmer’s market. When the Haymakers brought indoor football back to the city after a seven-year drought, they decided to honor the importance of the Haymarket by naming their team after it. The biggest difference between the two: the Haymakers regale people with high-octane entertainment in the form of bone-crushing tackles and soaring touchdown catches.
Playing as part of the Midwest-based Champions Pro Indoor Football League, the Haymakers gather players from across the country to compete in the league’s fast-paced, eight-on-eight arena style of football. Off the field, the team makes a positive impact in the community by holding youth camps, organizing parties, and constructing human pyramids to cover up unwanted graffiti.
