ATLANTA, Ga. (www.meridix.com) - The Week 10 Game of the Week has been released. The No.3 Indianapolis Tornados will put their undefeated record on the line against another undefeated team just south down I-65 in the No.10 Derby City Thunder. Derby City entered the Top 10 for the first time this season and will have a shot right out of the gate to showcase their worth.

The Thunder come in led by Impact Conference All Star quarterback Eric Miles. Miles has targets like Antonio Eddins and Jerome Walton to throw to all season on his way to tossing 21TDs and rushing for 7TDs. Reshun Carter is carrying the rock out of the backfield with a solid average per strike [carry]. Derby City isn't undefeated without the play of a stout defense. Mike Sowell, Cleavon Pickett and Robert Martin anchor a defense that has only allowed opponents 58 points through 7 games. For Thunder Owner Howard Gant the move to the GDFL this season "...was all about the level of competition and the relationship with GDFL President Charles Thompson who has a great concept for the GDFL", Gant stated. That test of competition will be on display this weekend.

North up I-65 the No.3 Tornados are all about striving for another championship. The program hasn't seen a league championship since 2008 and with a small number of the core group of guys remaining, the Tornados are looking for their leadership to carry the them along with mentoring the youth on what it takes to be a champion. Even this Tornado possesses a "thunder and lightning" aspect. In the backfield Jimi Agnew and Tony West cause defenses pop up storms on a routine basis. The Offensive Line is rounding into form just in time for the stretch run. Across the line the Tornados average 6'3 300 and have a veteran center leading them.

What a way to kick off the Week 10 slate! The GDFL Game Center in the media section will keep you informed of the latest. You can always get the latest by following on Twitter @THEGDFL or click here to visit meridix.com.
