The Dodge City Law joined the CPIFL in 2014 and had a successful first year. Joshua Floyd headed the team at the quarterback position, throwing for 1,374 yards, 22 touchdowns and eight picks. He also ran for 16 scores, along with Dominique Carson. Maurice Young led all receivers with 12 scores. Paul Robinson and Cashmin Thomas both picked four passes on defense. Despite going 1-3 against the other playoff teams in the regular season, Dodge City got into the fourth and final playoff spot. The team was seconds away from upsetting top seed Wichita, but a 51 yard field goal at the buzzer was good, giving the Wild a 33-31 victory. The team came back in 2015, quarterbacked again by Joshua Floyd. This season, he threw for 1,552 yards, 28 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Dello Davis led all receivers with 11 scores 497 yards on 31 catches. The Law got out to a 6-1 start on the year, and everyone assumed they'd be the top seed come the postseason. However, Dodge City dropped four of its last five games, including the final regular season game at home to Sioux City, which bounced the Law from the playoffs and put Amarillo in. The four losses at the end of the year came by a combined 12 points. On a fumble in the final seconds against Sioux City, it appeared Dodge City recovered, but officials ruled it Sioux City ball. Derrick Bernard led the Law into the 2016 campaign at quarterback, throwing for 39 touchdowns, 15 picks, and 1,946 yards. More importantly, however, he led all rushers with 1,060 yards and an astounding 26 scores. Dominique Carson also ran for 22 touchdowns, making Dodge City one of the top rushing attacks in the league's short history. Daniel McKiney led all receivers with 51 catches for 714 yards and 21 touchdowns of his own. Much like 2015, Dodge City got out to a hot start, going 6-2. The regular season would end at a respectable 8-4, but it would not be good enough for home field in the first round of the playoffs. Amarillo demolished the Law two weeks in a row and ousted the Law from championship contention, 98-56. The 2017 Dodge City team encountered some off-field troubles that resulted in two games being counted as forfeit losses. For two games, no video was provided to opponents and rumors of other financial woes ensued. As a result, a 9-3 season was marked as 7-5 and the team lost a home playoff berth and would go on the road. Statistically, the Law were led by Rudy Johnson, who passed for 2,583 yards, 42 scores and 13 picks, completing nearly 67% of his passes. He also led all rushers with 308 yards and nine touchdowns. Daniel McKinney caught 65 passes for 909 yards and 20 scores. Defensively, the Law racked up 24 sacks and 18 interceptions, but did drop a 91-51 decision to Wichita later in the season. It turned out that losing home field advantage was crucial for a team that was unbeaten in their own building. With six seconds left, the Texas Revolution scored on a 15 yard pass from Chris Dixon to Clint Solomon to advance, 63-59.
