Football season is back!  From the NFL all the way down to "Pop Warner," the pigskin action is back, and thanks to the latest announcement from the Independence Bowl Foundation and Radiant Technologies is inviting you to join the party!

Are You Ready for Some (Flag) Football?

According to the report from the ArkLaTex Homepage, the Independence Bowl Foundation and the Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl are bringing the inaugural 1st & Give Charity Flag Football Tournament to the field of the Independence Bowl on Saturday, October 9th.  This tournament is for everyone!  In fact the rules state that teams must have at least seven players "including at least two female players," to compete.

What Are the Stakes?

What exactly will you and your team-mates be battling for?  Besides bragging rights (which are substantial), your victory will ensure that cash money will be donated to the charity of your choice!  In fact, the top 3 teams left standing at the top of the pyramid of winning that day will have money donated to their favorite cause!

Put Me In, Coach!

If you've got at least 6 friends who want the gridiron-glory, and have a heart for giving back to the Shreveport/Bossier City Area - get them together and start working on plays!  The entry fee is $350 per team, and all of your players must be at least 18-years-old or older.  Get the complete list of rules and the application on the official Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl website here.
