The Scouting Report
After a rocky start to the 2014 campaign, the Haymakers found their stride, winning two of their last three games. The squad should be able to sustain that momentum in their next two home games, as the Bloomington Edge and the Kansas Koyotes are a combined 0–8 on the season. Head coach Cory Ross roams the sideline after serving as interim coach for the last three games in 2013, and he brings a wealth of gridiron knowledge from his career as a standout running back for the Nebraska Cornhuskers and tailback and punt-return specialist for the Baltimore Ravens. Much like a flash mob organized by Congress, the roster features representatives from across the country, including from major universities such as Nebraska, TCU, 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.
