The Breakthru Athletic League’s boys and girls flag football program held its end-of-season Super Bowl Tournament on Saturday, May 4 at Samuel Friedland Park. This was the league’s fourth season.

All the teams in the league participated in the final Super Bowl Tournament, and each team played shortened games in order to see which ones would make it to the final game for their division.

In all, there were a total of 38 games played across all divisions on that championship Saturday. During the official pre-game ceremony, the flags were presented by the Seminole Ridge High School JROTC, while the national anthem was sung by Jazmyne Yarnold-Mattei.

All the players — more than 380 ranging in age from 4 to 17 — in this spring’s league received a medal and a shirt for participating in the league this spring. There were a total of 47 teams in the league.

Prior to each age-group game, each player on every participating team was allowed to run through the tunnel, and players were announced before each Super Bowl game. All champions won a Breakthru Athletic League Super Bowl championship ring.

Super Bowl champions by division were: Boys Peewee – Broncos, Boys Freshmen – Buccaneers, Boys Junior Varsity – Dolphins, Boys Varsity – Dolphins, Coed High School – Dolphins, Girls Peewee – Buccaneers, Girls Freshmen – Lions, Girls Junior Varsity – Patriots and Girls Varsity – Eagles.

“The Super Bowls were very exciting to play and to watch, and we had two of them go into overtime to determine the champions,” said Matt Green, the league’s director of communications. “It was a great day out at the fields, and while it is always bittersweet to end a season, we’re already looking forward to and planning our fall season of NFL flag football. We had a record number of early registrations during our Super Bowl weekend registration event, so we know we’re going to have another big season.”

In June and July, the Breakthru Athletic League flag football program will be hosting eight flag football skills camp events, which will be free for anyone who would like to participate. Registration is open now. Find more information at www.breakthruathleticleague.com.
