Storm Look To Stay Strong In The 2nd Half

Storm Look To Stay Strong In The 2nd Half
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls Storm have a target on their back. They entered the 2014 season following three consecutive wins in the league's "United Bowl" championship game, and have picked up right where they left off. The Storm blew through their first half schedule, and currently stand at 7-0. Defensive back Jonathon Setzer credit the team’s success to the discipline and veteran leadership.

“Oh the work ethic, the staff, the veteran leadership here. Right when we came in from the beginning, the work ethic from everyone was fantastic,” said Setzer.

Those principals have helped guide the Storm to averaging over 270 yards of total offense and nearly 60 points per game, both marks lead the Indoor Football League. Storm Head coach Kurtiss Riggs is proud of the teams solid start and spot they’ve put themselves in.

“Well I think the position were in is what where we want to be. Our goal is to play for a championship every year and we’ve done a nice job the first half of the season positioning ourselves for that,” said Riggs.

Riggs is entering his twelfth year as head coach of the Sioux Falls Storm, and will be the first to remind you that there’s always area for improvement. Although statistically the Storm are strong in all facets of the game, Riggs wants to see more development from his defense.

“I think we need to be more stable. I think at times defensively we look very good, and then at time we look very average. I think we need a more consistent level of play through all four quarters,” said Riggs.

One of the keys to consistency is giving 100 percent effort on every play, and not looking ahead. It’s a motto that Setzer believes could be the key to the Storms success in the second half of the season.

“One play at a time. One quarter at a time. One game at a time. If you play it like that, one play at a time, everything is going to work out,” said Setzer.
