Special Olympics Flag Football


The winning team from Auburn.

On December 22, two Special Olympics teams, one from Tuscaloosa, one from Auburn, met on the gridiron at Duck Samford Park for a flag football game.

This game took place the week before the Auburn University vs. University of Alabama Iron Bowl game. The game has been a tradition ever since last year.

The team from Auburn won the game, but everyone was a winner.

Auburn Civitans were on hand to help with refreshments and enthusiastic cheering.
