The Orlando Apollos have gained more yards through the air than any other team in The Alliance of American Football this season, but one might not guess that by looking at the stats from their 36-6 win over the Atlanta Legends Saturday.
The Orlando Apollos’ Week 6 matchup with the Arizona Hotshots came down to one thing: hunger. Arizona came into the game hungry for its first win in exactly a month after losing three games in a row.
The Orlando Apollos scored 20 unanswered points with 17 in the fourth quarter to overcome a 29-17 deficit and defeat the San Antonio Commanders, 37-29, at the Alamodome in San Antonio Sunday.
The first night. As Orlando Apollos head coach Steve Spurrier has been so fond of saying in the week leading up to his team’s inaugural game against the Atlanta Legends, he didn’t know what he was going to get from his team until they played a game.
After all the preparation and hard work of training camp and practices, the start of the inaugural season of The Alliance of American Football — is little more than just hours away.
It’s getting closer. A new professional football league and a thrilling, innovative and interactive sports fan experience is a little over a month from kicking off the season.
