Enid, OK – The defending CFL champions, the Enid Enforcers, took the field Saturday night at Selby Stadium here in Enid. Determined to defend their title, they started off the season very well in line with those intentions, destroying the Oklahoma Force 53-0.
The Enforcer defense was dominant in the first half, continually pushing the Force back and forcing punts. And in many cases, those punts were fruitless thanks to very high wind speeds.
Enforcers team owners and player, Mark Timberlake sounded excited about the prospects for this season when reached earlier
“I believe there will be a big target on our back, but I am a firm believer that adversity does not build character, it reveals it. I believe in our guys and think their maturity of this team and the way we carry ourselves will have a big impact in that,” he stated.
For those who keep track of things, Al hunt, quarterback from the Northwestern Oklahoma State University National Championship takes the rains this season. ” His love for the game has put him in a leadership roll on our team. Al has a humble heart for such a talented athlete…I just hope its contagious,” Timberlake said.
The addition of Hunt gives the Enforcers the luxury of moving Corsey Young back to his natural position of running back. He previously played QB leading the team to the title.
“This year we are very fortunate to have a lot of depth both offensively and defensively….as well as guys giving depth on both sides of the ball like Wayne Wedel, Danlion Belton, and Teddy Venerable….2013 should be exciting,” Timberlake stated.
