Huntsville, Ala. (WHNT) – History suggests the Alabama Hammers should win the PIFL Championship by a comfortable margin. They beat their opponent Richmond twice by an average of 29 points.
Some might say the Hammers already had their toughest test of the playoffs, taking on an Albany team that beat them earlier this season.
“When you lose a game early in the season it gives you an opportunity to learn from the mistakes that you made. In a little bit of a way, that’s an advantage for us. Playing them a second time, we got to see a lot of their tendencies and things like that. As far as more intensity from one game to another, I wouldn’t say so,” said Jake Trantin, Hammers linebacker.
“Albany is a tough team, so when we drew them first round, I wasn’t psyched about it. We knew they weren’t going to roll over and we knew it was going to be a hard fought battle. So, in that respect, we can breathe a little easier that we got through that big challenge. But at the same time, I think it’s more excitement that we get to play in the championship game,” said Russel Hill, Hammers quarterback.
