KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Many of the Tri-Cities Fever players come to Eastern Washington hoping to win yes, but ultimately, they hope to get back to the higher levels of football, like the Canadian Football League or the NFL.
So, for the Fever, they have all the incentive in the world to play well, in the hopes that they can build up their highlight tape and get a team to take notice.
For the Fever, so far that type of motivation has translated into wins as the Fever have a 3-1 record as they hit their second bye week.
"We all have that itch and that urge to get back to the next level, whether it's to Canada or back to the NFL," said Fever Running Back Dennis Kennedy.
"Every one of us deserves to be in a higher league and this is just a stepping stone for every individual that is out here that is trying to play football, you got to start somewhere," said Fever Defensive Lineman Brian Rackley. "We all know that we're capable of playing in bigger and better leagues and we're all here right now so we're playing to the best of our ability."
