The Mifflin County Tomahawks are an 8-on-8 semi-pro football team and are members of the Great Eastern Football Association (GEFA) league. Our team was founded in 2008, originally known as the Milheim Fighting Dutchmen. In 2009 we became the Mount Tuscarora Tomahawks, and in 2010, we officially moved to Mifflin County.
Competing under the Mountain Division of the GEFA league, here is the teams’ record over the years (10 game minimum regular season):
2013 – 5-5
2014 – 7-3
2015 – 9-1 (10-2 overall) Mountain Conference Runner Ups
2016 – 9-1 (11-2 overall) Mountain Conference Champions; First Keystone Bowl appearance
2017 – 10-0 (12-1 overall)Mountain Conference Champions; Second Keystone Bowl appearance
The Tomahawks were finally able to turn the organization around after a fresh coaching change and internal re-organization after the 2013 season. The moves proved successful, finishing the 2014 season with their first ever winning season in the GEFA. The following season, the Tomahawks set a team record and went 9-1, earning their first postseason playoff appearance in team history. Unfortunately, they lost in the Mountain Conference championship game by 6 points.
The 2016 season started off where the Tomahawks left it, going 9-1 and clinching another playoff berth in consecutive back to back seasons, but this time, winning the Mountain Conference championship to earn their first ever Keystone Bowl championship berth. Unfortunately the Tomahawks came up short and went back to the drawing board.
The 2017 season proved to be the most successful season in team history, as the Tomahawks blew by every team in the regular season. During that time span, they scored 737 offensive points and only gave up 277 points defensively to other teams, making them the #1 offense and #2 defense in the league in back to back seasons. They were able to breeze by the playoffs and made their second consecutive Keystone Bowl appearance in GEFA history. Unfortunately, the Tomahawks suffered the same fate as the previous season, this time losing to the defending champs by only 12 points.
Although Keystone Bowl XIII didn’t end like the Tomahawks had hoped, they look to turn it around going into their 10th season with the Greater Eastern Football Association. Thanks again to all the fans who have supported them through the years and that have helped the Tomahawks lead the GEFA in attendance for the third year in a row!
