FalconHawk(e) was formed in the halcyon days of the 2004/05 season when the summers were long and the champagne flowed freely. A team of amateurs who played with amateur ideals; the socialist structure led to a drive for mid-table mediocrity. A strict rule (still followed today) of a new captain each year has worked maintain its place in the middle. In recent times, however, “professional” mindsets have infiltrated and placed us in serious contention for pennants. This attitude - well below FalconHawk(e)’s status - is a work on for the team.
