The Murkwood Riders are one of the more recent expansion teams in the MFL (Modern Football League). Yet they managed to burst onto the scene instantly relevant. In their eight seasons they have made the playoffs all but one year. Last season they were a game away from a title shot. Much of the credit can be attributed to their quarterback who’s rookie season was the inaugural season for the franchise. Tyson Baxter is only twenty six and already one of the hottest names in the game. Rumor is he is a home town boy born in Murkwood and living incognito in an apartment in downtown. The Riders have drawn scrutiny from the League as their lineman are a full thirty pounds larger on average than the rest of the league but as yet no evidence of tampering has been proven, and Baxter is the fastest man in the entire league with uncanny accuracy and balance. The youthful team is a threat each season and their popularity is growing rapidly.
