Huntsville Al - The biggest semi-pro football game in the country this week could quite possibly be happening in North Alabama. The 4th ranked Rocket City Titans are hosting the second ranked Indianapolis Tornados.

In order to put these rankings in perspective, consider it is out of 55 teams in the league. The talent level ranges from players who come from division one college teams to players who only made it as far as high school varsity. No matter their experience, these players joined the team for one reason.

"I love football," quarterback Garry Guilford said during practice this week. "It's very intense and we love to win."

Head coach Scott Peavey echoed his players' excitement for the game. "These guys play with great passion and it's fun to watch because it's great football. I think that when people see that they're like, 'wow it's a little better than i thought it was.'  "
