The Palouse Thunder open up the season Sat march 22nd with a non-league game vs the spokane B team in a match up that brings great competition. both teams have always had a great fight and come down to the wire in competition. The 2013 Thunder were coached by Previous Spokane owner and great friend Eugene Burgess. With him there were a string of athletes from the spokane area that followed that helped give the thunder a great season in which we were put out of playoffs by a point system.
The 2014 Thunder are starting off with on of the greatest and biggest rosters of all time. The team has worked really hard to recruit and build as much depth as possible. The Thunder does have some returning starters but has rebuilt both sides of the ball and is looking to put a serious dent in the league this year.
The Thunder would like to extend a open thanks to Colfax high school for giving us a home very close to home which has been a problem in the past. We would also like to extend a thanks to our sponsors for helping us get thru the seasons year after year. Fans you know we have to give you a great thanks for your support game after game and sticking by the team that you have grown to love and support. This Year the Thunder did a discount card fundraiser in which they are still working to finish selling those cards to help finish paying off the teams finances for the season, but also work as a season pass to get you in every Thunder home game. So Pick Yours Up Today(Discount card!)
The Palouse Thunder Football team is excited to get a start on the 2014 season. We are a small local organization committed to providing local athletes with a great opportunity to play full contact, minor league football. This also gives our community a chance to watch exciting football in the spring and allows local business’ to advertise at home games, within Palouse Country and the greater Whitman Co. area.
Our organization is a part of the Washington Football League (WFL); We are one of seven teams from across the state. The WFL was founded 12 years ago and continues to be the longest running, and most consistent league in the region.
We acquire players from all over Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho including towns such as Colfax, Pullman, Moscow, Lewiston, Clarkston, Spokane, Cheney, and much more--Chances are you know someone who plays!
All Thunder Coaches and staff are volunteer, and players must provide their own playing gear and team fees. All support we receive from local community businesses goes toward the purchase of much needed safety equipment, field rentals, referees, uniforms, and transportation costs off the team; also allowing us to take some of the burden of fees and travel costs of the players and their families so they can focus on playing good Palouse Thunder Football.
We are a minor league football team based in the Palouse area, recruiting passionate local athletes who want a chance to play in a fast paced, exciting, and very competitive league. Athletes have the opportunity to advance their careers to the collegiate and professional level. We are a member of the Washington Football League (WFL), consisting of six teams from around Washington and Northern Oregon.
We play because we love this game. With every drop of sweat, every bruise, every tackle, and with every electrifying hit we give honor to this sport. We play for no more reward than internal satisfaction and the admiration of our fans and teammates.
