Introducing the Tampa Bay Tornadoes Arena Football Team. Founder/Co-Owner and General Manager Alton Walker along with Co-Owner and Director of Player Personnel Ken Nelson have dedicated themselves to bringing you the most exciting football ever witnessed.
The team is loaded with talent from all over Florida as well as blue-chippers from around the nation. Our Coaching staff is made up of some of the greatest Football Athletes to ever perform in Arena Football and the NFL. Coach Stevie Thomas was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2011 after many wonderful and record-setting seasons as a Wide Receiver with the Tampa Bay Storm. Coach Thomas also played for the Orlando Predators and the Jersey Gladiators. Coach Tracy Sanders was another Tampa Bay Storm stand out who we expect to make the Hall of Fame when he is up for it as well as a player for the NFL Buffalo Bills. Coach Freddie Solomon was an amazing athlete for the Tampa Bay Storm and played with the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles and the Cleveland Browns.
The teams home field is at the Florida Fairgrounds Expo Hall, a maker of World Championship teams. It’s first claim is to the world Champion Tampa Bay Storm followed by the birthplace of the Tampa Bay Lighting.
