Football game supports Project Unify

The public is invited to the first annual Black and White Spring flag football games slated for Wednesday, June 12, at Reed Stadium. Girls will play a “powderpuff” game starting at 6 p.m. followed by a boys flag football game featuring members of the Outlaws tackle football team at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is $3 per person and additional donations will also be accepted. 

Girls’ teams from each grade level will square off to get things started. The first game will be freshmen versus juniors followed by the sophomores versus the seniors, with winners advancing to the championship final. The boys will then take the field for a flag football game of their own that will feature two 30-minute halves and a running clock to keep things moving. The Sisters High School Band will provide entertainment.

Proceeds from the games will benefit the Project Unify sports program that serves school-aged youth with disabilities.

Sisters School District has been involved with Project Unify for many years. 

Head football coach Gary Thorson said, “I really hope people from all over the community can come out and support Project Unify and have a fun evening watching some flag football.”
