Arena Bowl XXIV is now history!
It’s the Arizona Rattler’s quest for a third Arena Bowl ring!
It was back and forth the first half with the score 42-38 Rattlers. The second half was a high scoring, hard hitting contest. Each team scored every time they got the ball. In the third quarter Rattler’s quarterback Nick Davila was officially named Arena League Football’s M.V.P. 2011! Unfortunately with two seconds left and the Rattler’s winning, 70-67, Sharks quarterback Aaron Garcia threw a touchdown pass to win the game 73-70! Aaron Garcia, after 17 years and the most successful quarterback in Arena Football League history finally won his first Arena Bowl! What might have been a Third Championship for the Rattlers ends in a lifetime dream for Garcia. I say hold your heads up high Arizona. U.S. Airways Center was packed and rocking! Oh yea, by the way Kurt Warner was the color commentator. Congratulations to the Jacksonville Sharks as well. Now its on to College football and the N.F.L…Go Devils..Go Cards!
