Scottie Griffin and his South Georgia Guardians are now officially in the IAFL. The Guardians will take the schedule vacated by the North Georgia Steelers, who decided not to compete in the 2018 IAFL Spring season. Scottie brings a young but excited group of players led by head coach Mark Merrill, assistant coach Desmand Wilson, offensive coordinator Blue Young and defensive coordinator Joseph Hanna. The Guardians will host the Riverdale Spartans on March 3, 2018 to open the season. The Riverdale Spartans and the South Georgia Guardians are both in the IAFL ‘Darkseid Division’.
