The National Conference's West Division is the winningest in the league, and amidst that fierce competition, the SaberCats have earned an 8–4 start after winning 5 of their first 6 at home. On July 20, they'll face their doppelgänger—a Philadelphia Soul team that has won 5 of their first 6 road games. The SaberCats offense takes its cue from wide receiver Jason Willis, who, through 12 games, has already cracked 1,000 yards receiving and has found the endzone 26 times without having to ask for directions once.
San Jose SaberCats
The San Jose SaberCats were a part of professional sports history even before they stepped on the field. On October 26, 1994, San Jose, along with four other cities, earned the approval of the Arena Football League to create an expansion franchise. The five-team expansion was one of the largest seen in American professional sports; not since the NHL added six teams in 1967 had a league experienced such growth. They chose the SaberCats moniker to pay homage to the large prehistoric predators known to stalk the hills of California in search of mankind's first dentists.
With a heated fan base behind them, the SaberCats refused to let that first headline be their sole achievement. Under head coach Todd Shell, the 1995 SaberCats went on to win eight games and their division as an expansion team, a feat no other AFL team has repeated. Since then, the boys in green have launched the careers of many notable players and won three ArenaBowl championships, the most recent in 2007.
