HEAD COACHES:

Anthony Wells, Everett Hawks
Coach Wells joins the Everett hawks via the N.I.F.L. Cincinnati Marshals. His head coaching expertise with the Marshals was added to individualize the Hawks coaching staff. After working with the defense in his first week with the Hawks, Wells was named the new head coach.

Coach Wells, nickname "T-Wells," began his football career at Rochester High School in Pennsylvania where he also competed in track and basketball.

After High School, Well's attended Kent State University where he received a degree in communications. His football career continued at Kent State under the direction of Glenn Mason who helped him to receive a 1st team all-conference honorable mention and later to become an All-American.

Wells is an eight year veteran of the Arena Football League where he had stints with the Florida Bobcats, Miami Hooters, and the Cleveland Thunderbolts. He played from 1991 to 1999 as a 6'2, 220 pound, wide receiver / defensive back.

His coaching career immediately succeeded his playing career and includes AF2 offensive coordinator positions with the Wilkes-Barre Pioneers (13-3), the Charleston Swamp-foxes (9-7), and the Pensacola Barracuda's. Wells continued his success upon receiving the head coaching job with the Cincinnati Marshals. Wells took over at mid-season and lead the mediocre Marshals at 4-4, into the Atlantic division champ game, ending the season at 10-6.

Bob Landsee, Head Coach
Bob Landsee returns to the Green Bay Blizzard as Head Coach after leading the team to its greatest season ever in 2005. Under Landsee, the Blizzard played to their first-ever winning record (9-7) and the franchise's first trip to the postseason. He originally took the helm of the Blizzard in 2005 after serving for one season as the line coach of the Indiana Firebirds of the Arena Football League. Previously, he was with the Toronto Phantoms (2002), after spending the two previous years with the Milwaukee Mustangs (2000-01). Landsee entered the coaching ranks following a very successful playing career as an offensive lineman.

LAST SERIES MEETING:
This is the first meeting between the Hawks and Blizzard

SERIES NOTABLES:
Both teams will be looking to take a 1-0 series lead.
