Gautier Recognizes Champions of First Youth Super Bowl
The football association has been in existence for several years, but this year, a Super Bowl upped the competition. Gautier brought home the trophy in the 7-8 year old bracket and 11-12 year old bracket. Coaches say it’s about more than bragging rights. They check players’ grades and school behavior to ensure the boys are on the right track.
Chris Nelson, a football coach, says, “We just have a group of tremendous kids. I mean, it took a lot of hard work. These guys were up for the challenge and we put them through stuff that a lot of junior high and high school kids are doing.”
Nelson coached the 7-8 year old Jackson County Broncos through an undefeated season. The Jackson County Saints in the 11-12 year old division also won their league.
