1 - The determination the team has and the ability to overcome any opponent.
2 - The whole organization is amazing, the players, Julie/Karl/Karen and everyone else at DSS
3 - The OT! haha, but the history of the fight you guys have been through to get where you are.
1) Homegrown team. The core group are local from Omaha. Teams from California can go around and grab players off of other teams and there is a boatload of talent around there, but Vicious has some solid paintball players on it and they came up in the system and are now reaping the benefits. I think one thing that makes Nebraska football important to Nebraskans is that the core group of the team during the powerhouse years were mostly Nebraska kids and they brought in outside talent to fill the holes when needed. I get the same feeling with Vicious and the core group they bring to the table.
2) The Bortol family. You could never ask for a better group of people to support a team than Carl and Karen. They would do anything they can for these kids and give a lot for the fans and ask for very little in return. They really do belong among the best people I have ever met. Enough nice things truly cannot be said about them.
3) The opportunities they have given me. I was just someone at the shop who left letting them know that if there was anything I could do to help the team they should just let me know. Greg had the silly idea to have someone take photos of the team and they gave me the opportunity to not only get started, but to get better. I kept plugging away and now I'm not only welcomed at most practices, some of the players are excited about me being there. They kept me active in the local paintball scene even though I'm not that good with a paintball gun. Without that silly idea, I probably would have put away the marker and not been involved in paintball at all. Now I'm already excited about next year and the possibilities in front of me for what I can do to help them out even more next year.
1. They have our future president, GP.
2. They have a Hooker.
3. On a more serious note, they are backed by the greatest family in the world, the Bortols. The Bortols and the Organization in general are just great to the fans!
1. They are the most exciting team to watch on and off the field.
2. They will give 200% at all times on the feild. Sometimes it may not be enough, but either way they are going to give it everything they've got.
3. They are not selfish and will do anything to promote the sport they love the most.
I can keep listing stuff all day long on why these guys deserve this level. All the hard work and dedication you have all given over the years is for sure how you have gotten to where you are today. Congrats to everyone!
