Through six weeks of the SFL regular season, many players are on pace to break all-time season records. Haflway through the season, London’s Jonny Pichler is on pace to set the all-time record for passing yards in a season (Rocco Marconi: 5,199). Will he get there and more importantly will the 2-4 Knights have enough firepower around him? The D.C. Dragons have been rumbling on the ground with Kevin Seay, helping D.C. to a 5-1 start. He’s going after the first 2,000-yard rushing season since Reggie Streeter did it in Season 15. Will he be able to pull it off? The San Diego Mavericks are much improved this season, thanks in large part to free agent acquisition Gunner Lewis, who is on pace to score more TDs in a season than any player since Deezer Powell racked up 18 in Season 12.
While he’s not a category leader, Mack’s 85-yard INT-TD set the tone for Baltimore’s season in Week 1, still unbeaten and sporting the league’s top scoring defense (18.5 PPG). That’s on pace to be the league’s best scoring defense since Charleston in Season 14 (16.8 PPG). Josh Rowe of Houston has already set the record for pick-6s by a safety and needs 1 more to break the record for any player in league history. He’s joined by a trio of DBs – Colston, Levye and Mike Ryan – who all have 8 INTs, looking to break the season record for INTs, done twice (15). Otis Boudreaux of Louisiana needs 16 field goals to set the record for most made in a season. Vegas’ Doug Britton? He needs 1 punt return TD for the record. Plenty to watch for as the SFL hits the second half of the regular season.
The only thing that can separate the West Division through six weeks is point differential: SXF -1 / ARI +4 / DEN +9 / LVF +44. All teams are 1-1 in division. Everyone’s looking up at Vancouver in the Pacific, but San Diego does have the head-to-head over Los Angeles. Can anyone catch the Legion in Season 18’s second half? It’s anyone’s game in the South – Mexico City has already beaten Lone Star in OT this season and leads the way, but the Glory, Houston and Fort Worth are not far behind.
The lead in the North is slim, this season D.C. is challenging defending champ Baltimore. London and Queen City are playoff teams from last season. Will they make it back? The East is on its head again, is that you out front Louisiana? Tulsa is unbeaten in division play and Atlanta and St. Louis were playoff teams last season. How many teams will crack the Top 12? Who will win the East? Yes, that’s Jacksonville in the lead of the Atlantic, which is far from over. Charleston got a statement win over Florida, but don’t expect Florida to lie down quietly. Carolina still has time to turn it around.
