FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Essex Jct, VT) – There are just nine days until the Vermont Ice Storm take on the Detroit Black Ravens for a National Championship in Hollywood, Florida and the team could not be more excited.
"It's been an amazing season, and we look forward to representing the state of Vermont and our fans in Florida", said Ice Storm offensive lineman Russell Humphrey.
The Ice Storm, who polished off a perfect 15-0 season by defeating the Watertown Red and Black in the Empire Football League championship game, was selected to play in the USA Bowl after being ranked second in the American Football Top 25 poll released back on November 2.
"It's been a long season, but certainly worth it", said Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator, Scott Aguglia. "The program has made great strides this year."
2007 was only Vermont's second season competing at the AAA level and the impressive results have left little doubt they belong at the highest level. The Ice Storm's two year overall record in the Empire Football League is 21-3.
But, all the success is not being taken for granted. The organization realizes it has been given a golden opportunity plans to do everything they can to take advantage of it.
"We have been practicing right along," explained head coach Doc Perez. "The players know that only a well prepared football team will be able to compete with the likes of Detroit."
The Ice Storm's last two practices will take place Friday and Saturday January 11 and 12 and are open to the media. Friday night the team will be at the Williston Sports and Fitness Edge between 7-9pm. On Saturday, the team will practice at Shelburne Athletic Club's Fieldhouse.
