This past season season we were crowned USA Bowl Summer Division National Champions, won our Division for the fourth year in a row and qualified for the GDFL National Playoffs for the seventh year in a row. In January of 2023 we headed to Daytona Beach, FL to face the Minneapolis Warriors in the USA Bowl Summer Division National Championship Game. (17-20 loss) The above mentioned team accolades, Cam had a direct hand in making possible. For his efforts last season Sanders was named GDFL All-Pro for the third time. In addition to All-Pro accolades Sanders was named the GDFL Defensive Player of the year. Cameron is nominated for many team awards as well which will be announced at our kickoff celebration in a few weeks.

"Cam has done an amazing job for us every year. He is a leader on and off the field. He is no a rah rah type player he simply makes plays and that is all we ask. He never hesitates to help those around him, has a cool demeanor at all times and never plays selfish. We love what Cam brings to the team and are blessed to have him back on board with us. He proved himself to be the premier defensive player in the nation last year and we expect the same again in 2023"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.

Cam is a graduate of Central Tech, HS in Erie, PA. While at Central he was a standout on the football field and track for the Falcons. Sanders was selected to play in the Save an Eye All-Star Game and played his college ball at Fullerton College.
