The Juggernauts have not always been the most stable of teams, but with their never-give-up attitude and their love for the sport they may be coming back stronger than ever this season. When the previous league started to collapse, the Juggernauts believed they would be facing the same demise especially since almost all active members started to move to other teams or formed completely new teams with other people. Fortunately, the veterans of the team persevered and thought quickly of how to deal with the situation at hand.

, The Juggernauts’ Fighting SpiritFor three seasons (2015-2018) they have been building their team from scratch under the strong guidance and management of  Coach Oliver Montano. The training of the new recruits started with the non-contact sport Flag Football which has the same concept and nearly the same rules as Tackle. They then transitioned from Flag Football to Touch Football in order for their players to have a feel of a more contact sport. Thanks to the generosity of Coach Angel Calugay Jr. who provided uniforms and football gear, the Juggernauts were able to move to Tackle Football and learn even more from then on.

However, it was not smooth sailing for the team despite the rigorous training and upgrade in gears. Their debut season ended bleakly with no wins and them in last place. Moving on though the Juggernauts decided to start their recruiting process early therefore having 90 members by January 2018. Sadly, from 90 it became less than 30 by March, and 15 before the start of the season. They were faced again with another possible collapse.

Instead of accepting defeat, the leaders of the Juggernauts came together and decided to merge with 4 other teams – Taguig Vipers, Navotas Vanguards, Quezon City Lionheads and the Flowers Powers Tigers – in order to still be able to participate in this season. How the team grows will be interesting to take note of since the players are coming from different kinds of playing styles, strategies and conditioning. The journey has not always been easy, but truly the tenacity, especially from the quick-witted leaders of the Juggernauts, have been proven to be admirable. Seeing how the players jive together and how they have improved from the last season is definitely a reason to follow and watch the team this season.
