Summer may have just started but Iowans will have several chances to watch a football game over the next couple of months. There are three teams in the state that are part of the North American Football League which has more than 100 teams in divisions across the country.
The Iowa Bruisers will play their home games at Manson-Northwest Webster High School, the Cedar Valley Vikings play in Cedar Falls and the Des Moines Threshers are a first year team that will play at Valley Stadium in West Des Moines.
Trevor Coxworth is the owner and quarterback for the Bruisers and says the NAFL is an amateur league, and he says they play for the love of the game. But Coxworth says this is not a bunch of middle aged men trying to relive their glory days. He says this is not a softball league, and he says Tanner Varner from U-N-I is the starting safety for the team. Coxworth says they also have kids right out of high school too.
The Bruisers will host Cedar Valley on Saturday afternoon and Coxworth says the games will provide quality entertainment for low cost. He says people 15 years and younger get in free and tickets for 16 years and up are only six dollars.
