2020 Flag Football Season

Summer Flag Football was a fantastic season and no one could have asked for more. On the flip side, the Fall Tackle Football Season was postponed due to the one I dare not say its name, thus flag football became center stage once more. Despite the sadness of missing tackle football the coaches and the many new players were optimistic about the Fall Flag Football Season. South Davidson once again had the most children in the county rostered along with a few of our homegrown legendary coaches returning to defend championships or to avenge last second super bowl losses.

U6 Flag Football
Coach Justin Bishop looked to avenge last season’s overtime super bowl defeat. He returned many key players such: Westin Bishop, Zane Scarlett, Jordan Taylor, Lucas Gilliatt, Axton Wirt and new comer Logan Cowdrey. Unfortunately, for the Panthers time ran out on their great season.  
Justin Davis and his wild bunch of Chiefs found themselves in the super bowl. Many of the Chiefs suffered through a winless season just one season prior. Ny Moore, Gavin Davis, Corbin Swietzer, Camden Cox and Chase Hull seemed destine for glory in their second season along with new comer, Hunter Leonard. The Chiefs entered the playoffs with the top seed and were ready to vanquish any and all challengers. The Friendship Seahawks looked to avenge their early season loss against the Chiefs in the final. Coach Justin Davis masterfully managed the clock and dialed up the perfect play as time expired to score the game winning touchdown. Gavin Davis trotted across the end zone to the heartbreak of the defeated Seahawks.  

Ira Matney guided his Chiefs to a strong finish. The Chiefs started the season slow but became a serious contender that no team wanted to face down the stretch. The Chiefs finished the season upsetting two higher ranked teams and nearly defeating the top seeded Packers in the playoffs.  Parker Crouse, Nolan Stary, Brody Hunt, Wake Matney, Brick Hymer and Jayce Leonard went from early season underdogs to nearly top dogs before the clock unmercifully ended in the semifinals.
Rus Howell and Levi Carrick returned to defend their previous season’s championship. Jazara Sturdivant, Julius Sturdivant, Connor Allen Johns, Tristan Wirt, Mannie Longshore and Sean Dennison rounded out a talented roster. The Seahawks finished the season as the number two seed and seemed destined for a rematch of last season’s super bowl against the Packers. The semifinal game seemed over when the referee said the Seahawks had just enough time for one last play as they snuck by the Titans with a last-second game-winning reception by Levi Carrick. The Arcadia Packers remembered the previous season’s super bowl and they came thirsty for revenge. Sean Dennison and Rus Howell connected on a late pass to keep the Seahawks in the game but the Packers prevailed as the clock did not leave the Seahawks any precious seconds for another miracle.  
The Panthers season may have not seemed successful but the team made tremendous strides and improved each week. The Panthers finished their season with a playoff win. Coach Justin Bishop’s Panthers will have momentum heading into next season with the late season improvement. “Jayden Shore, Jaiden Taylor, Sidney Staley, Wyatt Bishop, Daniel Bales, Blake Leonard and Landon Lester are poised for a lot more wins next season,” said Coach Justin Bishop. The Panthers were likely one of the youngest teams in the league.
Just like the Panthers the Rams were a young team and possibly the youngest team in the league.  The Rams finished with the seven seed heading into the playoffs. The Rams improved each week and were able to shock the three seeded Midway Seahawks in the semifinals. The Rams avenged their previous week’s defeat to the advance to the super bowl.  The Rams faced the returning champions the Reeds Titans.  The Rams kept the game close most of the first half until succumbing to the older Titans.   CJ Asbury, Chloe Boice, Caden Wagoner, Caper Matney and Rus Howell finished strong and will have another shot for a gold ring next season.

Chiefs  & Browns
The Chiefs and Coach Ira Matney finished the season strong improving each week. Jude Matney, Hayden Flannery, Jayden Flannery, CJ Asbury, Hailey Asbury, Savannah Asbury and Anthony Rich were competitive in almost every game and played the eventual super bowl runner-up in their toughest game. The Browns had an up and down season. Myles Scercy, Duke Howell, Andrew Stary, Sammie Brewer, Colton Allen Johns and new comers Bronson Lewter and Alex Chavis had a successful season despite their record. The Browns had some shining moments and even made it to the semifinal round before losing to the eventual champion Seahawks. Both the Browns and Chiefs have a lot to look forward to next season.  

First Time Flag Football Coach Craig Kindley led a team of almost all new comers to a successful first season. The Chiefs improved each week and finished strong. The Chiefs roster included: Gage Underwood, Levi Sexton, Tyler Flannery, Chance Tuttle, Jerry Baker, Eli Hulin and Elijah Loflin.
