The Everett Raptors were a professional indoor football (a variation of American football) team that played in the Indoor Football League. They played their home games at the Comcast Arena at Everett in Everett, Washington. The Raptors were one of two IFL teams in the state of Washington, joining the Tri-Cities Fever.

The Raptors franchise was the relocated team previously known as the Kent Predators and later the Seattle Timberwolves.[1]

As of 2012, the Everett Raptors are out of the IFL. The parent company filed for bankruptcy, and the team was not in the league in 2012-2013.

History[edit]

The franchise was originally going to play in Wasilla, Alaska as the Arctic Predators, but complications between the ownership and the would-be head coach led to difficulty in obtaining a lease, so the IFL and the Arctic Predators split ways. However, the A-Preds did not fold immediately; they played that season in the American Indoor Football Association.

After playing the entire 2010 and the first 6 games of the 2011 season as the Kent Predators, the team switched to the Timberwolves identity in April 2011 (throughout the franchise's first two years, they played at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington).[2]

On October 18, 2011, it was announced that the Timberwolves were moving to Everett, adopting the new Everett Raptors identity.[3]

The Raptors were the second indoor football team to play in Everett, following the Everett Hawks of the National Indoor Football League and later the af2 which played from 2005 until 2007. A team called the Everett Destroyers was proposed for the IFL's inaugural 2009 season, but folded before ever playing a single down.

On July 30, 2012, the parent company, Northwest Pro Sports LLC, filed For Bankruptcy. The Everett Raptors are now out of IFL and did not play 2012-2013.[4]
