Fox Valley Force Prepare for 2018

The Fox Valley Force had a busy off season. Starting with new leadership immediately following the season of 2017.  Former owner Matt Reyes, passed the team on to two men he knew would keep the Force tradition going.

Those two men being Anthony Shimulunas and Matthew Crooks. Crooks and Shimulunas took on the team, upgrading their involvement from being Head Coach, and defensive line coach respectively , to co-owners of the Fox Valley Force who has been established since 2006; which is impressive compared to the average life span of an adult amateur football team. The new owners wanted to start the new journey off with a bang in year one, and with that they needed to add help. That help came with the brother of Matthew Crooks, Aaron Zepnick former Head Coach. Zepnick's new role will be General Manager, along with helping facilitate game day activities , and assistant coach as well.

The Force also retained wide receivers coach A.B. Cassell as all 4 men joined the Force at the same time and are still fighting their way to bring Force to new heights in the N.E.F.L. Those new heights involve a couple of other new entities within the organization. A new look is another way to jumpstart a new era. The final look is still being finalized, but the Force is putting in effort working with multiple apparel companies to make sure they get the look they want and their players deserve.

Finally, comes their new home, and hopefully final home for the Fox Valley Force. That is, located in Menasha. Calder has recently been updated to all levels you want in a facility to play. New turf, New locker rooms, and best of all, a great community to build around. Even before the Calder deal was finalized, that didn't stop the Force starting to get a feel for their new home. Local businesses loved the idea and have been anxious for the Force get Calder, as many feel it can have a good impact on the community and the local businesses

Fox Valley Force would like to thank the Menasha School district for the wonderful opportunity to play at such a fantastic facility and is looking forward to getting involved with the community. Fox Valley Force is always looking for ways to volunteer their time to help their community and surrounding communities. From reffing Special Olympics flag football tournaments in Neenah, to help spot for weight lifting events in Omro, and to the next project asking for help. The Fox Valley Force is also still looking for game day volunteers, cheer leaders, and dancers. Also, the Force never stop adding potential players, sponsors and coaches. Stay tuned for the uniforms of the Fox Valley Force to be revealed.
