Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs beginnings
Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs became the fifth professional hockey team in Roanoke when it was founded on 2015. The other teams that represented Roanoke were Roanoke Valley Rebels, the Virginia Lancers, the Roanoke Express, and the Roanoke Valley Vipers. These teams represent Roanoke in various leagues in different timelines. The Rail Yard Dawgs made it to the list when Bob McGinn headed an ownership group that purchased the Mississippi Surge franchise and transferred it to Roanoke. Name, colours, logo, and first head-coach, Sam Ftorek, was later announced. Since then, Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs became a member of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) and has drawn more than 80,000 people into the season to watch their favorite team clash in the ice rink against the other hockey teams like Knoxville Ice Bears, Pensacola Ice Flyers, and Evansville Thunderbolts. The fans will always have their favorite hockey teams to root for, but the Rail Yard Dawgs will never lose the audience that they captured since their home opener at the Berglund Center.

What the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs team stand for
Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs win not only in the rink but also in the hearts of their fans. The logo, the name, and the railroad connection with the Dawgs’ name and regional heritage is just the surface of what they actually represent. Their fondness of kids that is evident in their usual shots is just a part of what they actually stand for. They established a partnership with three local, charitable organizations: Guns and Hoses Hockey that benefits the Muscular Dystrophy Association; Angels of Assisi that benefits the largest animal shelter, clinic, and farm animal sanctuary in Roanoke; and the Virginia Museum of Transportation that preserves the transportation history and industry of Virginia. All these three beneficiaries represent the team’s brand, mascot, and where they are from. This sense of philanthropy gave them the cutting edge among other teams. They understand that at the end of the game, their team has to mean more than just a championship.
