This weeks edition of Flashback Friday features the inaugural 2005 American Indoor Football League contest between the Erie Freeze and the Johnstown Riverhawks. The Freeze were led to their first win in franchise history by QB David Dinkins as they posted a 48 – 27 victory on the road in Johnstown, PA. Erie exploded for a seventeen point lead to start the game and never looked back- sealing the game with several key defensive stops in the second half for Freeze head coach Mike Esposito. This game features many players who would go on to become household names in the AIFL/AIFA over the past five seasons. Riverhawks starting quarterback Chris Thompson is currently the Head Coach of the Reading Express, and Johnstown receiver Quenteen Robinson was recently named the Head Coach of the first year Johnstown Generals of the UIFL.
