 They are the #2 rated team in the SEFL and are ranked in the top 10 in the southern region ,they are well-coached, disciplined & motivated.After their loss in the 2019 Championship, we expect those guys to be war ready this season.So keeping my team focused and level headed will be key",said Head Coach Alexander.

The Road Warriors have a steep mountain to climb. Truthfully, they may have a bumpy season. The GDFL is a league unlike any other. The competition is fierce, the talent level is unrivaled. If some of the Road Warriors are unfamiliar to the GDFL style, the learning curve is extraordinarily steep.
