History of the Dragons
The Seattle Dragons are among the newest teams to join the XFL and have quickly become a fan favorite. The team was founded in 2019 by Vince McMahon as part of his relaunch of the league. Since then, they have been gaining popularity with sports fans all over Seattle and beyond.
The team has already impacted the XFL landscape in its first year alone. They finished their inaugural season with a 5-3 record, good for second place in their division behind only Houston Roughnecks, who went undefeated at 8-0 that season. This earned them a spot in playoffs, where they fell short against eventual champions DC Defenders 31-19 but still put up an impressive performance overall, considering it was only their first year together as a franchise!
Their success didn't end there, though; after making some fundamental personnel changes during the offseason of 2020/21, such as bringing on new head coach Jim Zorn from Washington State University and signing quarterback Brandon Silvers from Memphis Express, Seattle Dragons were ready to make another run at championship glory this past spring 2021 when COVID restrictions forced cancellation of the entire season before any games could be played or won unfortunately - leaving us all wondering what might've been if things had gone differently! But regardless, we can still look forward to future seasons, knowing that our beloved hometown heroes will always be fighting hard each game day, no matter what obstacles stand between them & victory!

Dragons – Seattle Dragons fans, rejoice! The XFL has officially announced the team name for Seattle’s new professional football franchise: Seattle Dragons. But what do we know about the origin of this powerful and symbolic moniker? Let’s take a look at how it all came to be.
The process began with a survey of residents in which they were asked to submit their ideas for potential names that would best represent the city and its people. After collecting thousands of submissions, including “Seahawks," "Rainmakers," “Emerald City Warriors," and more, five finalists emerged from this pool: Orcas, Rainiers, and Sockeyes (all paying homage to various aspects of Pacific Northwest culture), as well as Renegades and Dragons (both offering an exciting alternative).
Ultimately, it was clear that one option resonated with locals far more than any other – dragons! Representing strength & power, passion & loyalty - qualities deeply ingrained in both sports teams across America but especially those playing under Seattle's banner - these mythical creatures seemed like an obvious choice when considering who should lead us onto victory each Sunday come to fall 2020.
Beyond being incredibly fitting for our region, however, there is another reason why dragons have been chosen; they are often seen as symbols of transformation & change – something very relevant given our current state both on-field and off-. With such strong ties between dragon lore & modern-day symbolism then, plus its ability to unite us all behind one cause here in Washington State, only time will tell if this nickname proves worthy enough by season end...but until then, let's get ready to roar!
