2011

The 2010 Fort Wayne Firehawks season was the first season for the Continental Indoor Football League franchise. In November 2009, the FireHawks were announced as the successor team to the Fort Wayne Freedom.[1] Owners J. Michael Loomis and John Christner purchased the assets left from the Freedom franchise, who had played the two seasons before the FireHawks were announced.[1] Christner's first action as General Manager was naming former Freedom head coach Willie Davis as the team's first head coach.[2] On December 9, 2009, it was confirmed that Loomis and Christner would take over the entities that used to run the Freedom.[3] Before the season started, the team announced they had signed Katie Hnida as the team's placekicker. Hnida is best known for becoming the first woman to score a point in an NCAA football game and speaking out during the recruiting scandal at her first school, the University of Colorado.[4]

According to the The Journal Gazette, former players say they are still owed from the 2010 season. Team owner Mike Loomis did not confirm or deny the reports in that article.[5] The team drew about 2,000 fans per game, according to CIFL stats.

Week 8: vs. Wisconsin WolfpackEdit

The FireHawks got a quick chance at revenge against the Wolfpack, but they failed losing 32-33 as they couldn't score from the 1-yard line with seconds left, as backup quarterback, Mike Whitaker's pass sailed over the hands of Jermaine Woolfolk. The FireHawks didn't dress a kicker during the game, citing "low ceilings" as the reason not to dress the team's new kicker, David McLane, an intern for the team.[12]

Week 12: vs. Marion MayhemEdit

The team was schedule to the Mayhem the next week, but before they played the FireHawks the franchise folded.[17] The folding of Marion credited the FireHawks with two forfeit wins, but hurt the team financially by costing them a home game.[18] Because the Mayhem didn't finish the season, several of Marion's players were signed by Fort Wayne in the subsequent weeks to join in the FireHawks' playoff run.[19]
