IFL: Storm Look To Complete A 4-Peat

June 27, 2014, 10:50 PM by Cat Clark

IFL: Storm Look To Complete A 4-Peat
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

From 2005 through 2008 the Storm won four consecutive Indoor Championships. Tomorrow night they will meet the Danger for the second consecutive year in the United Bowl with the hopes of capping off yet another four-peat.

Last year the Storm hung on to a 43-40 win over the Danger to win their third straight IFL title and their seventh in franchise history. Their QB, Chris Dixon, helped Sioux Falls win two of those titles and returned this season after being away for a year in hopes of leading his team to another.

"I mean, Chris is Chris, and he's always going to make plays and his receivers are always going to make plays for him. If he has his offensive line to stand in front of back there deliver the football like he normally does, then that is what makes them better last year offensively," Danger Head Coach Mike Davis said.

"I think most of you put the pressure to come back and do that anyway. I think that was the first thing said when I came back. When you come here it's always expected and Coach, Kurtiss Riggs, sets that tone for us each day," Dixon said.

On game days the tone is set by the fans that fill up The Storm Shelter. Not only will the United Bowl be the final game of the season, but the final game played in the Arena. Nebraska QB and reigning M.V.P., Jameel Sewell, has played in several hostile environments in his career, but says there aren’t many tougher than Sioux Falls.

"It's right around the top. Visitors here have to deal with a lot. No disrespect to the fans, but the constant 'Sewell, Sewell, Sewell,' and the constant nagging. It's an interesting place to play, but of course I'd rather be playing at home. No doubt about it," Sewell said.

In 14 seasons at the Arena the Storm has racked up a record of 111-14 while winning six titles at home. With a win Saturday night they will close the building having won 42 consecutive home games. Dixon has never lost a game in Sioux Falls and admits emotions will be high with a championship on the line.

"I think it will be emotional for all of us. For me I've been on both sides. I've been on the good side when I came in the Arena and beat Sioux Falls. I've also been on the side where we've been on a run, not losing a game at home. I'm just happy to be a part of winning while we're still here," Dixon said.

Kickoff is set for 7:05 at the Arena.
