The Muskego Hitmen opened their 2012 IFL Season with a preseason battle against their NFC rivals, the Milwaukee Venom.  Despite being short-handed, the Hitmen prevailed 27-0 on strong performances on both sides of the ball.

The Hitmen Offense, lead by JoJo Moore, was efficient scoring touchdowns on their first 4 possessions.  The first to score a touchdown was Moore on a 3 yard run.  He would later add a 65 yard touchdown run.  Fullback Russ Hochstaetter rumbled from 1 yard out for a touchdown, and WR Mike Beckom capped off the scoring with an 11 yard touchdown catch from Moore.

The Hitmen Defense was equally impressive, forcing 4 turnovers in route to the shutout.  An interception by defensive back Anthony Wiggins, 2 interceptions by defensive back Justin Rogers, as well as a fumble recovery helped to keep the Venom out of the endzone and preserve the shutout.

The Hitmen now have 2 weeks to prepare for their first regular season game against the Fon du lac Crusaders on June 9th.  Game time is 6 pm at Muskego HIgh School's Inpro Stadium.  Be sure to come out and support your Hitmen as they begin their quest for another Ironbowl Championship in 2012.

    With the recent explosion and obsession with mobile devices, website creators are scrambling for way to get their content onto as many of their devices as possible. We are all busy and don't have time to sit at desk every time we want to catch up with the Muskego Hitmen and what is happening in the I.F.L.

    In our efforts to keep up with the Jones', we are proud to release our very own touch enabled mobile website! No more keyboard, forget about a mouse, and don't even think about printing our a roster. You don't need that stuff anymore - We've go you covered. Now you can take everything Hitmen where ever you go. 

    You shouldn't have to do anything special to get at the new mobile site, just visit m.muskegohitmen.com from your mobile device and you'll be taken there auto-magically.  

    We currently support these modern Touch enabled devices

    • iPhone 3GS+
    • iPod Touch
    • Android OS 2.1+
    • Blackberry OS 6+ ( limited )

    if you're of the more technically inclined, The site is very HTML5 and you could probably use the site with any decent webkit based browser. Most modern touch devices already have one installed by default, so you probably don't have to worry.

    With the first release you'll find:

    • Player Info
    • Team Info
    • Schedules
    • League Line ups
    • User Messages

    We have plans to add more modules and ridiculousness in the coming weeks as well. The mobile app is build on top of our new, powerful API Service, which is a fancy way of saying we have little robots powered by hamster wheels that 

    do nothing but spit up data when we ask for it. We are using the mobile app as a pilot program for our shiny new Data Service. In the near future we plan to open our Data service to a few 3rd parties for use. 

     

    Our Data API gives access to things like:

    • IFL Teams ( Current & Historical )
    • Automatically updating Schedules
    • Full historical IFL Game Archive 
    • Stadium Information and Locations
    • Team Records ( career and seasonal )
    • League Standings ( all-time and season )

     

    It's a ton of data and to top it off, it is all relational. Which means when ask for the data for last weeks games in the 

     

    IFL, not only do you know who played and what the score was, but you also know what conference each team is in, Where each team plays their home games, if the game was a regular season game, playoff game or whatever. 

     

    You even get a list of each teams known rivals!. With that kind of information you could build your own mobile application. You could even use our data service to power you regular website and never have to worry if it is up to date.We're pretty excited about theses shiny new toys and we hoe you enjoy them!
