"St. Louis Spirit vs. RiverCity Eclipse @ Parkway Central H.S. Stadium"
Well it's that time again so let' s say hello to summer and hello again to the true boys of summer, the GMFL football players!!! The seasons stage has been set for what should be a very interesting one. The RiverCity Eclipse have been known for having a tradition of winning and fighting through adversity. With old faces gone and as new faces arise to some, the RiverCity Eclipse may seem unrecognizable but for Head Coach Drew Cleveland he doesn't see it as a problem. "We will challenge their names" Coach Cleveland tells his players as he addresses his team. Coach Cleveland also wants it to be known that football is a mans sport, a gladiator sport, and ultimately one that requires FAITH. Men driven can be hard to conquer and that's what this 2012 Eclipse team embodies, FAITH & DESIRE that cannot be measured. "We'll see if they can go toe to toe in the 4th quarter... we'll be prepared!', says Coach Cleveland.
The 1st game brings a St. Louis Spirit team, that is hoping to ride the wave and momentum of pre-season success into the regular season. The Spirit's on-field play has insisted that this year is going to be different. For Hall of Fame Coach Damon Cannon, who has been able to maintain a well-oiled organization since 2001, certainly deserves to see the fruits of his labor. Will 2012 be the year is what many are asking. For some around the GMFL they truly think that this is going to be a year that Coach Cannon can look back and reflect on. For the RiverCity Eclipse known for winning season after season, now find themselves as the underdogs as many around the league feel that with all the roster shifting, the NEW look Eclipse don't have the same fire power that they once had. The Eclipse have added rookies that they feel can compete and make an immediate impact, as well as complement returning veteran players like #7 J. Shell, #1 T. Bell, & #4 J. Buie to name a few. Can the Eclipse return to greatness and continue to be #1 or will the Spirit reverse that trend and shock the league?
All these questions and more will be answered June 2, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. to start the season. Week 1 should certainly leave something to talk about!!!
