Leesburg Youth Teams Compete in NFL Flag Football Tournament at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore

From the Town of Leesburg – Four Leesburg-based youth flag football teams competed in the NFL Flag Football’s Baltimore Regional Tournament on Sunday, October 17, 2010, at the Baltimore Ravens’ M&T Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland.

Leesburg was represented by two teams in the 9-11 year old age group and two teams in the 12-14 year old age group.  All of the Leesburg teams performed well at the tournament, but one of the 9-11 teams, the Leesburg Raiders, had a tournament record of 4 wins and 1 loss, losing only in the championship round. 

“It was a remarkable experience for all of us,” said Raiders coach Scott Kallivokas.  “We were playing against travel teams with much more experience in tournament play.  Our boys really held their own.  I can’t imagine how nervous I would have been as a boy playing in a NFL stadium in front of several thousand people.”
