Youth football mass scrimmage set for Saturday

WARRENSBURG - The Northern Adirondack Youth Football League will be holding its annual "Combine" event Sunday, Sept. 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Warrensburg Town Recreation Field on Sanford Street.

The public is welcome to watch the action at this free event, a mass rotating scrimmage amongst seven teams.

The Combine kicks off the league's season and is a chance for all the teams to play together and put their athletic skills to the test.

Players from Corinth, Fort Edward, Glens Falls, Lake George, Ticonderoga, Warrensburg and Whitehall will be participating. There are two divisions of tackle football, one squad fielding players from 3rd and 4th grades and another with 5th and 6th grade players. The teams will be competing weekly this fall beginning Sept. 11.

Each year the Combine event is hosted by one of the league's teams. This gives that team's program a chance to raise money by selling food and merchandise at the event.

Immediately after the scrimmages, there will be a punt, pass and kick competition for league members. Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each event for both of the divisions.
