Once again Rhein Fire was able to win the World Bowl at Frankfurt Galaxy under head coach Galen Hall and this time the Titan`s Ex-coach Bart Andrus had helped to move the team from a running pack (Clark + Bynum) into a fine receiver force, which was so well coached by former Vikings receiver Mike Jones, that Jeff Ogden could land a job at the Miami Dolphins.
Nevertheless, RB Pepe Pearson had been the man, who had secured the World Bowl win with his amazing TD while defender Nick Ferguson was getting ready for a long career at multiple NFL teams.
