The Wabash Wolfpack is a Galactic Football League (GFL) team who is a major rival to the competing Ionath Krakens. The Wolfpack plays an important role in the main storyline of sequel to The Rookie, entitled The Starter.
Wabash is one of the founding franchises of the GFL, and one of the few teams that has never fallen to the lower Tiers as of 2682. In addition, Wasbash has never had a losing season. 2682 also marks the 25th anniversary of the creation of the Wabash franchise which has a tradition of winning that covers two and a half decades. Gloria Ogawa, along with Kirani Kollok, was instrumental in the league's founding in 2658. This year Wabash changed its nickname from "The Wall" to "The Wolfpack" to honor a dedicated group of fans. Wabash has one championship trophy from Galaxy Bowl XI, in which the Wall defeated the Wilson 4 Warp. Wabash's other championship game appearance came against the Ionath Krakens in Galaxy Bowl VII, which the Krakens won 23-21 on a last second field goal.
The Wolfpack is a Tier 1 team within the Tower League, which is part of the Planet Division. The Planet Division also includes:

The team was formerly known as the Wabash Wall until the name was changed by team owner Gloria Ogawa. The announcement of the change was made all over the galaxy on January 3, 2683, as renowned sports announcer, Chick McGee, reported it on Sportscenter. The team owner indicated that the change was made in honor of the die hard fans.
The name change was an unusual move, as the Wabash Wall was one of the original twelve teams that founded the GFL in 2658, and had not moved from their home city of Wabash on planet Fortress. However the change was permitted by the league, despite the efforts of GFL Commissioner Rob Froese who originally vetoed the change. The team had the support of nearly all the active Tier 1 owners, with the exception of Gredok the Splithead, owner of the Ionath Krakens and bitter rivals of the Wabash Wall.
