The 2007 Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Pioneers season was the team's sixth season as a member of the af2. Under coach Rich Ingold and led by quarterback Ryan Vena, the Pioneers advanced to their fourth straight playoff appearance, winning three games at home to earn a spot in the ArenaCup. The Pioneers lost the championship to the Tulsa Talons 73-66 after the Pioneers' final pass play in the waning seconds of the game fell short.[1] Several members of the team were given season awards, including David Davis as 2007 Havoc Kicker of the year,[2] Ryan Vena as Schutt Offensive Player of the Year,[3] and Coach Ingold as Sportexe Coach of the Year.[4]
