For 13 weeks, the players practiced and honed their skills on the field, while their friends were off fishing, camping or swimming, Baker said. Several players gave up their summer vacations to be a part of every game, he continued.
“I am so very proud to have the privilege of coaching these kids since flag football six years ago,” he said. “For the kids to set a goal and achieve it like they did is truly amazing.”
Baker added that the season’s accomplishments reflected a total team effort.
“This is something we all will remember for a lifetime.”
