Santa Fe Christian Schools kicked off the Friday Night Lights (FNL) flag football season with 48 lower school boys in grades first through fourth. The FNL season runs August through November with teams playing eight games culminating with league playoffs. The players learn football skills including throwing, catching, game strategies and importantly, how to be part of a team. SFC is fielding six teams – three 1st & 2nd grade boys and three 3rd & 4th grade boys.
“I was coaching a group of 1st/2nd graders at a clinic and as we were closing one of the kids said can I pray? Another boy piped in and said on our team (FNL team), we always open and close in prayer. That makes everything worthwhile,” says Coach Chad Bickley.
