Youth Football in June

The Lions on offense.

One would not expect to stumble upon a youth tackle football game on June 4, but that is what happened on Saturday when I came upon an end of the season game in the National Youth Sports League.  The Black Hawks from the East Valley faced off against the Lions from the Pusch Ridge Christian School in Tucson at Chaparral High School in Scottsdale.  Both teams consisted of boys in grades 4 through 6.  Here are some photos of the Blacks Hawks’ 26-20 win in a highly competitive game.
