The Storm begin this season as the underdog as they look to reclaim the top spot in the IFL. In 2017, the Storm posted a league best 15-2 record but fell short of hoisting the elusive United Bowl trophy after a 50-41 defeat by the Rattlers.
The Storm return some familiar faces with veterans like wide receivers Mike Tatum, Judd Harrold and Melvin German, quarterback Lorenzo Brown, defensive lineman Claude Davis and defensive backs Jermaine Robinson and J'Vontez Blackmon.
The Indoor Football League (IFL) has announced a partnership with Vidswap to create an IFL Instant Replay Challenge s
system for the upcoming 2018 season.
For the first time in IFL history, IFL coaches will now be able to challenge the call on the field via a new real-time instant replay system.
Like the NFL, a team's head coach may request a review of a particular play by throwing a challenge flag. Per a challenge of a play on the field, the Referee acts as the replay official and initiates a video review of the previous play.
