Bryant Boys And Girls Club crowns its flag football champions (revised)

By Kirk Stewart

The Saline County Boys and Girls Clubs Flag Football season came to a close Saturday at Bryant Hornet Stadium. Flag football is played 7-on-7 style and focuses on fundamentals and building skills. “It really teaches the kids the game of football” a coach was overheard saying.[more]

Bryant Stadium was the foundation for an experience that was very similar to the high school games. Not only did they play on that field, the teams were able to run through the Hornet tunnel and onto the playing surface as their names were announced over the loud speaker. The only thing missing was the touchdown cannon, but with the amount of scoring, the cannon would have sounded like a machine gun.

In the first through third grade division, the Cardinals defeated the Cowboys 18-6 to claim third place while the Bucs took care of the Vikings 31-25 to claim the first place crown.  In the fourth through sixth grade division, The Eagles defeated the Giants 30-13 and the colts beat the Packers 25-18 in overtime for third place. And, the Jaguars topped the Steelers 33-13 in the championship game.

There are close to 70 kids involved in the program this year as well as a host of adult volunteer leadership – coaches, officiating, keeping score, clock, concessions, etc. Chad Knight leads the program for the Boys and Girls clubs.
