The Pizza Pizza team of the week hails from the rugged tundra of University Stadium and the Co-Rec Flag Football League: Team Katie. Currently tied for second place in the standings, Team Katie has demonstrated week in and week out a winning attitude. Playing ferocious defense, Team Katie has allowed the fewest points in the league this year, accompanied by a high-flying offence. This team has demonstrated tremendous spirit and passion for the game, showing up on Halloween night in costume, only to find out that unfortunately their game had been forfeited by the opposing team. Team Katie never wavered in the sight of their missing opponent, as they proceeded to play a high-intensity game… against themselves!
Captain Jordan Hyde has led a defence reminiscent of the ’85 Bears with 3 interceptions, tied for second in the entire 13 team league! Whereas Team Katie’s offence is led by the two-headed monster of Takara Jones and Logan Kamer, showing their versatility by catching passes and tearing off runs for huge gains, keeping opposing defenses guessing.
As we head into the final stretch of the season, Team Katie looks to continue their success by playing with an unmatched passion. The team is constantly supporting and cheering each other on through success and adversity, which has been a pleasure to watch throughout the year. Hopefully there will be many more “turf angel” celebrations in Team Katie’s future as the playoffs approach. We wish Team Katie the best of luck in the rest of the season!
Congratulations Team Katie, the enthusiasm and spirit you bring to the league is like no other, keep it going!
