Th Paredes Lumberjacks is now starting to come together after undergoing a rebuilding period. After reaching two championship games (2010 and 2011) some of the veteran players left the team while new blood was added.  Three years have passed and with Michael Davis entering his second year coaching this team, look for the Lumberjacks to be “back in business”.

The Lumberjacks defense is packed with some of the best players in Portugal, including defensive lineman Rafael Nunes, linebacker Paulo Barros and defensive halfback Jonathan Mendes. They just need to get the same production from their offense and add some playmaker ability to specific positions. Never count the Lumberjacks out of contention for the championship game.
