In the opening weekend of the 2013 GNYFF youth football league, teams flocked to fields around the island to play the sport they all love. Dedication to the sport can not only be seen amongst players, but amongst their parents too. The chore of bringing the kids to practice, helping put on their gear, and taking them to games every weekend can be a tiring job for working parents. But it all pays off when the joy of playing football is evident even in the four year-olds playing flag.

Saturday’s games featured the Eagles and the Falcons who faced off at Eagle field and the Cowboys and the Jets at the Tiyan field.

The Jets were unable to field enough players in their Metgot division, as some did not make weight at weigh-in time. So instead of not playing at all, the two teams scrimmaged. Though the score of the scrimmage did not matter and would not count, both teams played their hearts out.

“We’re really pumped up about this year, although we don’t have a Matua division due to a lack of players, the rest of the organization, we have high spirits. You can tell as opposed to last year, our parents are more involved. We just have a lot more involvement; we have a stronger organization this year. And we’re hoping for the best,” said Gene Camacho, who is president of the Jets organization.

Winning a championship would be ideal for any team, Vincent Quitugua, president of the Cowboys organization hopes for a little bit more.

“We just hope that the kids enjoy, learn, and take something positive from the game.”
