Castle Pines Athletics NFL Flag Football program brought enthusiastic athletes to the field for the spring session. Mild temperatures kept the games alive all season allowing for one weekly practice and game. The spring season included seven games with the older division Browns (ages 9 to 11) and the younger division Broncos (ages 6 to 8), taking it all the way to the playoffs and then on to win the Super Bowl championship title in their respective divisions.
“We had a very special group of kids, and winning the Super Bowl was the perfect ending to our season,” said Coach Matt McDonald, head coach for both teams.
