American Arena Football: East Carolina Torch – CANCELLED

Image may contain: text

Fasten your seatbelts grid iron junkies, arena football is coming to the Duplin County Events Center.

Duplin’s rooting interest will rest in the Torch, an indoor football team that played as the Triangle Torch in the Supreme Indoor Football League last season and were members of the American Indoor Football League the previous season.

Twelve teams from four professional leagues are united in the American Arena League.

East Carolina will host Upstate (Anderson, S.C.) on April 28 for its first home game at the Events Center.

North Carolina has two other franchises — the Cape Fear Heroes (Fayetteville), and the Carolina Energy (Charlotte). Other states boasting clubs include: Virginia, Georgia, New Jersey and Florida.

The league also has three affiliate teams, which play league teams in hopes of being granted a full membership in the future.
The Torch, which played in Dorton Arena last year, went 6-0 and lost in the league finals.

They were 3-8 the previous season. Former NCSU player Chris McKinney coached both clubs, and is in charge — and part owner of the team.

McKinney played for the Wolfpack from 1999 to 2001, for six indoor teams for a decade, and has coached an arena club since 2013.

— The indoor padded playing surface is 85-feet wide by 50-yards long. Goalposts are 9 feet wide and have a crossbar that is 15 feet high. The NFL uses 18.5 feet wide and a 14 feet high crossbars.
— Teams have eight players on the field and 20-player rosters.
— Players play offense and defense, with the exception of a kick returner, quarterback and two defensive specialists.
— Kickoffs are from the goal line.
— Passing rules in Arena Football are the same as outdoor NCAA Football in which receivers must have one foot inbounds. A unique exception involves the rebound nets. A forward pass that rebounds off of the end zone net is a live ball and is in play until it touches the playing surface.
— There are four 15-minute quarters, and points are awarded as they would be in college football. Six points for a TD, etc.
— Punting is illegal. On fourth down, a team may go for a first down, touchdown or field goal.
The receiving team may field any kickoff or missed field goal that rebounds off the net.
Any kickoff untouched which its out of bounds will be placed at the 20-yard line or the place where it went out of bounds, whichever is more advantageous to the receiving team.
— The clock stops for out-of-bounds plays or incomplete passes only in the last minute of each half or when the referee deems it necessary for penalties, injuries or timeouts.
— Each team is allowed three timeouts per half. Four offensive players must line up on the line of scrimmage.
Three defensive players must be down linemen (in a three- or four-point stance). One linebacker may blitz on either side of the center. Alignment is two (2) or more yards off the line of scrimmage. No stunting or twisting.
A receiver may go in forward motion before the snap.
