October 12, 2013 – While traveling to play the Minot Oilers, Shane & Matt finalize the decision to build semi-pro football in Fargo.  The intent was to build a team as a non-profit organization and to grow with the city of Fargo.  The new team wanted to keep Red as one of the colors, so then the discussion turned to what the ‘primary’ color should be.  After going back and forth, they settled on a ‘creamsicle’ orange, modeling after the old-school Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The team has been aligned with a Managing Board; Shane Stephenson (President, Founder), Matt Petznick (General Manager, Founder), Humberto Rodriguez (Head Coach), Casey Gibson (Vice President), Mike Bryant (Treasurer), Dwayne Frelot (Assistant General Manager), Rochenel Jeanbaptiste (Player Liason).
