Storm Steamroll Towards Playoffs

June 19, 2012, 10:54 PM by Jim Madalinsky

Storm Steamroll Towards Playoffs
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It takes more than a flashy offense for a team to go 14-0, but this years Sioux Falls Storm attack has raised the bar.

"I call us the 'Greatest Show on Turf' like the St. Louis Rams were back with Torry Holt as a rookie. hey had a lot of weapons just like we do," Wide Receiver Clinton Solomon said.

Those weapons have been guided by defending league MVP Chris Dixon.
The Storm signal caller threw for an IFL record 3,321 yards this season. Add in 97 total touchdowns and it's easy to see why confidence isn't hard to find.

"I think the only thing that stops us is us. When we don't communicate and we don't do the things we've worked on that week is when teams get a chance to say they've stopped us once or twice, but as long as we stay together and communicate its always high confidence for us going into games," Dixon said.

A team full of talent doesn't always mean success though.
Along with communication, the Lightning Strike offense has also made it a point to check their egos at the door.

"Every receiver wants the ball every receiver wants to make plays. There was some frustration during the year, but all in all I want to win. I didn't care about my yardage stats, I wanted a ring," Solomon said.

And now with that title just 3 wins away, the Storm still have quite the appetite.

"We're almost there. It's a good time the way we are right now going into the palyoffs. We're not content, we have a hunger which is good. A team that goes undefeated and still goes in with a hunger is a good thing," Dixon said.
