Arizona Outlaws

The Outlaws team logo.

The Arizona Outlaws are a Division I team in Blitz the League II. They are one of 15 recurring teams from the original Blitz the League game. The Outlaws are known for their high-octane offense that can score on any play. Their team captain is veteran wide receiver Tito Maas.

HistoryEdit

The Arizona Outlaws were a founding member of the Western League in 1956, known then as the Los Angeles Lightning. In 1965 they would be part of the first ever Eastern-Western Exhibition game when they lost to the New York Shamrocks which was played in Brooklyn, New York. The game garnered the highest ratings ever for a football game. In 1970 the Lightning's owner Hal Davison wanted the city of Los Angeles to build the team a new stadium but in a citywide vote they overwhelmingly said no. This let Davison accept an offer by Tempe, Arizona to build a stadium and he rebranded the team the Arizona Outlaws. After the 1976 East-West merger the Outlaws started play in Division II.

The 2000 Season and the Battaglia IssueEdit

In 2000 the team had the #2 overall draft pick and used it to take LB Bruno Battaglia out of LSU to pair with their 1999 4th overall pick Amos Newell, however he failed to show up for the draft and was later found passed out in his hotel room incensed the team refused to sign him and he ended up with the Baltimore Bearcats. Also in 2000 the team plays the longest game in League history against the Chicago Marauders with the score tied at 14 after regulation they went six more quarters before a Chicago field goal ended it. Neither team recovered and both finished near the bottom of Division III, a Divison created by the 1994 merger with Clive Hanson's Scrub League.

Division IIIEdit

Arizona stayed in Division III for the next four years until they finally stockpiled enough talent for them to finally get a shot at the Division III championship. Unfortunately they were unable to defeat the Player-Created Team and stayed in Division III until defeating the Chicago Marauders the following year.

Division IIEdit

The Outlaws first year in Division II came to a surprise for the team as they finished with a dismal 2-4 season, finishing 5th in the standings. The Outlaws realized that their pass defense wasn't working out so management decided to change defensive coordinators. The change resulted in success for the Outlaws as they won the Division II championship the following year.

Division IEdit

Arizona's first year in Division I did not turn out so well. They finished with a 2-6 record, finishing 7th in the division. Most of blame goes towards the defense as the talent did not play as well as they did when the team won the Division II championship.
