The Richmond Raiders were the SIFL's counter to the IFL's Richmond Revolution, which played outdoors for the 2011 season. The Raiders won four of their first five to take a commanding division lead over Carolina and Fayetteville, but would win just one game down the stretch and slid out of the playoffs, despite winning their division at 5-7. Indoor veteran Mike Potts quarterbacked the team along with Aaron Alexander. The two combined for 1,460 yards, 26 touchdown passes and 19 picks. Damon Thompson led the team in receiving with an outstanding 1,048 yards and 28 touchdowns. Brandon Isaiah tacked on 9 rushing touchdowns to lead the team's ground game. The defense amassed 40 sacks, while the offensive line gave up 35. The offense scored 81% of the time in the red zone. The Raiders fell in several close games, including a two point loss to Carolina and six point defeat at playoff bound Albany.
