In Arizona there’s a thriving semi pro football community knows as the Gridiron Football League. This is a league that starts in February and runs all the way till June. Even though this league is referred to as semi-pro it’s actually amateur. Players will retain their college eligibility and have the chance to refine their skills at the same time. After a 12 week season players teams will enter the playoffs with hopes of playing in the Gridiron Bowl. On top of that the GFL has stats and player awards proving it’s the best semi-pro football option available in the state. Before you step on the field though remember football can be dangerous. It’s important that you spend a couple of month training before you decide to put the pads back on. You should also know that semi-pro players usually buy their own equipment and have to pay a team fee. However football can be one of the most rewarding experiences there is and nothing beats being a part of a team. Here are all the Arizona Semi Pro Football teams listed below.

The Denver Broncos got out to a 24-7 lead by the 3rd quarter of last night’s Monday Night Football game but that’s when the Chargers came surging back. Los Angeles put together 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to cut into the Broncos lead 24-21. In fact the Chargers had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds of the contest. That’s when Broncos defender Shelby Harris blocked a Los Angeles field goal attempt which helped first year coach Vance Joseph get his first career coaching win. Trevor Siemian was pretty good in the Broncos first game of the season, the 2nd year starter finished the night with 219 passing yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Siemian was surprisingly efficient tossing the football and his growth will be a big factor in Denver’s playoff hopes. Wide Receiver Bennie Fowler also played excellent for the Broncos the 3rd year receiver caught both of Siemian’s touchdown passes and provided a spark for Denver’s passing game. The Chargers of course were led by standout Quarterback Philip Rivers. Rivers played at a high level like he always does throwing for 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. However the Chargers are the same pass heavy offense as they’ve always been and that makes them predictable. LA has to learn how to trust their running game and clearly that wasn’t the case last night because the Chargers handed the ball off 22 times total. When you compare that to Denver’s 36 total handoffs it becomes obvious the Broncos were much more balanced which is the formula for success in football. Travis Benjamin, Keenan Allen, and Melvin Gordon all caught a touchdown pass from Rivers. So it’s safe to say the Chargers are going to get it done through the air, now it’s about finding another running back besides Gordon and getting a couple lineman who can block upfront. Defensively the two stars for the Broncos were Brandon Marshall who recorded 8 tackles and Bradley Roby who had 5 tackles plus an interception. The Chargers on the other hand were led Jatavis Brown who had 14 tackles in the game. Meanwhile Joey Bosa put up 6 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Melvin Ingram did work as well he ended up with 4 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Give credit to the Broncos they held off a Chargers team who refused to roll over and die. Both teams put on a show for the crowd and that’s all you can really ask for if you’re a football fan.

This league is actually very competitive and players need to have a strong football background before joining a team.

We created a list of the franchises that are located in Alabama. Remember semi-pro football players usually buy their own equipment and have to pay a team fee. The season starts in May and ends with the President Cup in June. One of the best parts of the APDFL is the fact that they’re very organized.

The Minnesota Vikings are known for their defense but Sam Bradford and the Vikings offense made their own statement Monday night against the Saints. Bradford threw for 3 touchdowns passes, no interceptions, and completed 27 passes out of 32 attempts. That was a nearly perfect performance for the Vikings veteran quarterback and when Bradford plays like this Minnesota takes it up a notch. Dalvin Cook also showed why he is extremely valuable to the Vikings offense and the rookie running back rushed for 127 yards in his NFL debut. Clearly that output helped alleviate pressure off Bradford which resulted in both the passing game and running game being optimized. Last year the Vikings didn’t get good enough results running the ball but Cook seems to be the cure to all those problems, which makes Minnesota a very potent offense overall. Adam Thielen had a big day of contributions too, the Vikings receiver recorded 9 receptions for 157 yards to lead all Minnesota players. Stefon Diggs also had a big day for the purple people eaters he caught two touchdowns passes and showcased big time playmaking abilities. With all of these pieces the Vikings are clearly in a better position than they’ve been in a long time. On top of that they still are tough as nails on the defense side of the ball with players like Everson Griffin who had 6 tackles and 1 sacks in Minnesota’s win. Trae Waynes had 11 tackles for Mike Zimmer’s defense too, so collectively the Vikings are still one of the best in the league defensively which will serve this team well in their quest for a Super Bowl. On the other hand the Saints struggled in this game. Brees did finish with 291 yards and 1 touchdown but New Orleans defense couldn’t keep them in the game. Coby Fleener was a notable offensive performer for the Saints catching a touchdowns pass and adding 54 yards. A.J Klein played pretty well for Sean Payton’s team in the loss. Klein finished the night with 11 tackles and 1 forced fumble. Expect Minnesota to be make a serious push for a playoff spot this season, they are much better offensively than last year’s team.
