The Flint Fury are a semi-pro football team located in Flint, Michiganmarker. The Fury currently play in the Mid Continental Football League.

Team History

The Fury began play in 2003 in the Ohio Valley Football League, sharing their home field of Atwood Stadium with the hometown rival Genesee County Patriots, who the Fury dominated in their only two meetings.

The Fury were very dominant in their first season, starting out 6-0 and being one of the highest ranked teams in the nation. Behind the arm of Jason Kinney, the running of Sid Hall, returning of Arnold Brown, and a tough defense anchored by owners Prince Goodson and Charles Lawler, the Fury were a force to be reckoned with. After a few minor setbacks, the Fury finished their first season 8-4 and were eliminated in the first round of the OVFL playoffs by the Ohio Rush.

In 2004, the Fury lost a lot of their players, including star running back Sid Hall, and it showed. The Fury started out 0-4 before getting their first win of the season against the Michigan Titans, which really turned around their season. The Fury were led by the running attack of Tony George and Michael Carter, and receivers Arnold Brown, Marsu Hussey, and Carlos Trawick. After an exciting 22-21 comeback win over the Ohio Rush at Atwood Stadium, the Fury seemed to be on the right track. The Fury finished the season with a 5-7 overall record, and were eliminated in the first round of the OVFL playoffs 14-8 in 2 OT by the Michigan Titans.

The 2005 season showed some ups and downs for the Flint Fury. The season started out on a great note in a new league, and they won their first non-league game against the Waterford Warthogs 32-20, but after that, the Fury offense would fall apart losing the next game 13-12 to the Detroit Downriver Diesel, beating the London Silverbacks 12-3, and tying 6-6 with the Chicago Wolverines. After that, the Fury struggled in their new home the MCFL, winning only one game, which was by forfeit. In fact, the Fury only scored 12 points in MCFL play, but they played as hard as they could, despite the lack of commitment by many players.

Despite trememdous ambition and effort, the Fury went winless in the 2006 season. The defense played great, but the offense struggled all year, forcing the Fury to an 0-11 record.

Greatest Game In Team History

  • July 31, 2004
  • Flint Fury 22, Ohio Rush 21
  • Atwood Stadium, Flint, MI


It was a warm summer night at Atwood Stadium, and the intensity of the Rush vs. Fury rivalry was in the air. Ever since the Fury were introduced to the OVFL they played intense games with the Ohio Rush. The Fury were in their home Navy blue, while the Rush wore a unique combination of orange jerseys with green helmets. The game was back and forth from start to finish, both teams fighting with everything they had, but it seemed that the Rush might sneak out of town with a victory. Unfortunately for Ohio, the Fury wouldn't go down that easily. As the sun set over the Atwood Stadium walls, the Fury trailed 21-14 in the 4th Quarter. On 4th and 30 with less than 5:00 remaining in regulation, Flint QB Jason Kinney fired a bomb to WR Carlos Trawick who snagged it out of mid-air and was knocked out of bounds just past the first down marker to keep Flint's drive alive. Trawick jumped to his feet and posed as he received a standing ovation from the Flint crowd. A couple of plays later, RB Tony George pounded the ball into the endzone to bring the Fury back to within one point as the Rush led 21-20. With Flint Kicker Scott Visser not at the game, the Fury had to go for the two point conversion. Jason Kinney took the snap and handed the ball to Tony George who swept to the left side and dove for the pylon in the corner of the endzone. The initial call was that he didn't get in, but after a little controversy, and some further review, the official signaled that the conversion was good, which sent the Atwood Stadium crown into a frenzy. The only problem for Flint was that they left too much time on the clock, so it was on the shoulders of the defense. The Fury have always had a strong defense, especially in clutch situations. Fighting for their playoff chances, the Fury defense stopped the Rush and forced a turnover on downs to get the ball back as the Flint offense ran out the clock to complete the greatest game in Flint Fury history with a 22-21 comeback victory over the rival Ohio Rush at Atwood Stadium.

Most Devastating Loss

  • June 26, 2004
  • Columbus Capitals 29, Flint Fury 27
  • Atwood Stadium, Flint, MI


In the home opener of the 2004 Flint Fury season, Flint was disappointed for the first time ever at Atwood Stadium, where they were previously 6-0, until tonight. Flint dominated through the whole game, leading Columbus 21-8 late in the third quarter. A Capitals Touchdown made it 21-14. After a Fury turnover, the Capitals struck again to make it 21-20. With the Fury on their heels, Columbus regained the ball once again, and once again ended up in the Atwood Stadium endzone. The two point conversion was good to give Columbus a 29-21 in the fourth quarter. The Fury had to get it in gear, and did they ever. A bomb to WR Marsu Hussey put the Fury in the redzone, and they put it in the endzone to make it 29-27. The two point conversion failed, as well did the onside kick, but there was still plenty of time left on the clock. The Flint defense got the ball back for the offense, and the Fury started to drive. After numerous passes to get them into field goal range, only a few seconds remained on the clock, as well as one more chance. Kicker Scott Visser stepped onto the field in hope to give the Fury their first win of the 2004 season. The snap was high, even though the holder got it down in time for Visser to kick it. Just as the ball was kicked, a Columbus defender tipped the ball, and it sailed to the sideline as the Capitals defeated the Fury 29-27, and handed Flint its first home loss in team history.

  • The Fury have an interesting statistic that you don't see too often. They have 2 games which were suspended early due to the violence on the field, both of which were at Flint's Atwood Stadium. The first was on July 19, 2003, when the Fury were playing the Michigan Titans. The Fury were winning 32-16, and Flint receiver Carlos Trawick was shoved into the Titans bench, which was the last straw for the officials, who suspended the game with four and a half minutes remaining. The second was on July 23, 2005 against the Chicago Wolverines. The officials didn't show up, which caused enough problems to begin with, but without the refs to keep the peace on the field, a team from Flint and a team from Chicago can get violent. With the game tied 6-6, and 10:59 left in regulation, both teams had enough and decided to call it off right there.
