This year’s Grambling State University’s intramural flag football team championship games proved to be exciting.
In the women’s championship game, in a triple overtime, the Hot Girls defeated Crime Mob by a score of 24 to 18.
In overtime, the Houma Boyz defeated Team 99 26 to 20. The Houma Boyz captured the state title in 2010. In 2011 and 2012, the team went undefeated in Grambling.
Carlton Brown, one of the players wore two hats: he coached and played. Trevon Smith served as the team’s quarterback.
Javine Robinson said he plays flag football for the pure joy and for the fans, which he says his team has acquired.
Robinson says the secret to the team’s success is they have fun. “We have good chemistry and bond well. We have fun, and we do not have arguments. We just play,” said Robinson, who has been with the team for the last three years.
Like most of the male players who play flag football at GSU, Robinson played football in high school. He was a cornerback.
Another reason they have been victorious is that there have been very few changes in the team’s roster.
In the spring, the Houma Boyz, will play together in the intramural basketball league.
During November 15 – 18, both squads will travel to Northwestern University in Natchitoches to try to win the state championship.
Robinson said, “We are looking forward to state and nationals.”
David Pierre is the person who spearheaded the flag football games this year.
