The Wenatchee Valley Venom moved from the defunct AIFA to the IFL for the 2011 season. Charles Dowdell and Devin Hollins quarterbacked the Venom to four wins in the team's new league. The two combined for 2,560 yards, 32 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. Dowdell also led the team in rushing with 263 yards and five scores. Timothy Simmons led the team at wide receiver, with 110 catches for 949 yards and 13 touchdowns. On defense, Vincent Joseph, Raymond Little, and Joshua Anderson all accounted for three interceptions a piece. The Venom began the year with two high-profile wins over Tri-Cities and Fairbanks, both of which would end up in the playoffs. However, an 80-19 loss to powerhouse Sioux Falls seemed to set the tone for the rest of the season. With the exception of a 50-43 loss to Fairbanks, the Venom were outscored by 196 points in five of their next six games. The Venom finally took their third win against another playoff team in Wyoming. After a 70 point loss to Tri-Cities, the Venom rounded out their year with three competitive games with Seattle and Tri-Cities, all losses.
