The Carolina Copperheads are a Division III team in Blitz the League II however, they are not playable during Carrer Mode because the Player-Created Team replaces the Copperheads in Division II. They are one of 15 recurring teams from the original Blitz the League game. Carolina is known for their quarterback and team captain Grant Tanner who's known for having the best long ball in the League.
The Copperheads were a founding member of the Scrub League that was created by Clive Hanson to seize the opportunity and fill the void left during the Strike years. They started play in 1992 and were merged into The League when Hanson sold his controlling interests in the Scrub League to The League and effectively merged the two creating a Division III. In 1997, Judd "The Stud" Crenshaw a player for Carolina is served two paternity suits against him by two of the Copperheads cheerleaders. Crenshaw T-Shirts and Jerseys become top sellers because of the incident.
By 2004 the Copperheads had made it into Division II. In 2005 with their #1 Draft Pick they took QB Grant Tanner. Tanner had a good rookie season, finishing 2nd in passing yards and taking the Copperheads to a .500 season. The next two seasons however did not pan out well for the Copperheads as they finished with a combine record of 6-14 over that span.
