Chasing an 11th consecutive playoff appearance—and currently in the running to repeat their reign as the Central Division champs—the Rush burst from the tunnel at Allstate Arena fueled by an appetite for soaring scores and punishing hits. Three-time AFL champion Bob McMillen peers from the sidelines as head coach, leading a lineup that stars wide receiver “Big Play” Reggie Gray, who has hauled in more than 60 catches and 20 touchdowns so far this season, and quarterback Russ Michna, an Elk Grove native and Western Illinois alum. Defensively, linebacker Kelvin Morris rattles bones with tough tackles, and 2011 AFL Defensive Player of the Year Vic Hall stops opponents cold by intercepting passes between his teeth.
Padded walls and netted goalposts surround Allstate Arena’s 50-yard indoor gridiron, on which mascot Grabowski and the Adrenaline Rush dance team entertain crowds during breaks in the action. On June 3, the team unveils its new mascot, handing out stuffed animals to the first 1,000 kids 14 and under to arrive, and after each bout, Rush fans can congregate at the front-row boards, where players sign autographs and T-shirt cannon nonproliferation treaties. The July 8 game marks fan appreciate night, where onlookers are randomly chosen to receive prizes throughout the event.

About Chicago Rush
A member of the Arena Football League since 2001, the Chicago Rush have embodied excellence from their first year of competition. The team reached the playoffs in each of its first 10 seasons, taking home the 2006 league title in ArenaBowl XX. The Rush vie for control of the National Conference’s Central Division with the support of droves of fans and the Adrenaline Rush cheerleaders. Additional encouragement comes from construction-worker mascot Grabowski, a name coined by Chicago icon Mike Ditka to describe the hard-working, tough nature of the players and the excellent construction of Allstate Arena.
