Who are the New Orleans Breakers Top Players

  • Jonathan Adams

  • Johnnie Dixon

  • Jerod Fernandez

Having a relatively successful season in 2022 by making the division finals, the Breakers would be looking to go farther by winning the division finals and going through to the championship game.

Seeing that they have retained a good number of high-performance players such as Jonathan Adams and Johnnie Dixon makes this a good possibility. Having a new quarterback would prove to be a difficult transition into the season but with effective training and strategy, the Breakers might be able to inch closer to the championship than the last year.

What is the New Orlean Breakers Win-Loss Record?
