History

On June 19, the AIFA announced that Danville would get a team to play at the Palmer Arena. Commissioner Andrew Haines owned the team (like most others) until a suitable owner could be found. Local radio station WDAN held a name-the-team contest, with 95% of the entries beginning with the letter "D". June 19 is the 170th day of the year (171st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


On August 16 the team announced their name, the Danville Demolition, as well as their new owner, South Bend, Indiana businessman John Christner, as well as a head coach, Willie Davis. The winning name was submitted by Michael Burmeister of Racine, Wisconsin. August 16 is the 228th day of the year (229th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Tony "Big Papa" Reetz is the former center for the Demolition. Reetz played college football at Illinois State University. He now teaches social sciences at Unity High School where he is also an assistant football coach. "I really love my job, especially because of the great kids I get to work with. The highlight of my day is always my 1st hour class. They are by far the nicest, smartest, and most responsible kids I have ever met. I'm just so lucky to know them," said Reetz. While his 5th hour class came up with the idea of a Papa Reetz fanclub website and t-shirts, Reetz has said that no other class comes close to his 1st hour, and he admits that those kids have made the success he enjoys now possible.
