The Orlando Predators Arena Football Team has been acquired by Nathan Starling and the Tridico Family as the they enter their second season with the National Arena League.
Nathan Starling explains: “I have always been an Arena Football fan and a devoted Orlando Predators fan. The games were entertaining, exciting and the fans always had a great time. My goal, and that of the Tridico Family, is to restore the Orlando Predators and Arena Football to their former glory. We are bringing back the fun and excitement fans used to experience when they came to a Predators game.”
After winning only two games in the 2019 season under the direction of Doug Miller, the new Orlando Predator owners decided to hire former Duke Blue Devil and Predators QB, Ben Bennett, as their new Head Coach for the 2020 Season. The 57-year-old Bennett is ready for the challenge. “I am looking forward to bringing back the Orlando Predators of old,” said Bennett. Because if there's anything Bennett can assure, it's that his team is committed to bringing back the glory to the ‘Original’ Jungle to the Amway Center.
The Tridico Family knows Bennett is the perfect fit to lead the Orlando Predators this season and beyond. “The addition of Ben Bennett as the Head Coach of the Orlando Predators is a huge win for the team and the fans.” said a member of the Tridico Family. “Ben has a legendary football career spanning NFL teams like the Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals and the Chicago Bears. He had an incredible record in the Arena Football League as well. He had played and coached on several teams, including serving as the offensive coordinator for the Orlando Predators. Ben has won Arena Football Championships and is ready to do it again in Orlando.”
The Orlando Predators are excited to get the season started as a new schedule will be released soon.
