The Scouting Report
In their march to an 11–1 record, the Gladiators have won games in just about every way imaginable. They’ve blown opposing defenses off the field—their 86–49 thumping of the Iowa Barnstormers comes to mind—and grinded out defensive battles, such as their 37–26 win over the New Orleans VooDoo. They have also triumphed thanks to late-game heroics, such as quarterback Chris Dieker’s last-second, hail-mary pass to Thyron Lewis that squeaked out a victory over the Spokane Shock (a clutch performance that earned the #2 spot on SportsCenter’s Top Plays). For their efforts, the Gladiators have earned the top spot in the American Conference. In two games against the Thunder and Sharks (the latter being the final home game of the season), the Gladiators will look to discover new paths to victory, such as manipulating the scoreboard with their minds.
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.
