The Devils are a second year team who have made good progress. Head coach André Amorim works side by side with the coach Anthony Skinner  in guiding the future for this young team.

One player to look for is João Almeida a young player who was one of the most exciting players in the league in 2014 scoring a touchdowns on special teams and off of turnovers. Also look for their 6′ 4″, 200 lb. quarterback, Bernardo Solipa, to be a force in 2015.

In preparation for the LPFA they have played and beaten (15-7) the Maximinos Warriors, last year’s finalists, in a win that shows that this team has something to say for the league’s sixth edition. All around the Devils have the largest roster in the league, with many young players but they lack experience on the field and that will be the issue for this team coming up the LPFA VI.
