Q) Give us a little info on your flag football experience, how long you’ve been playing, teams you play for, what positions you play, etc.
I’ve been playing for give or take 10 years, I play for my original team All TDs when we can if not I’ve been playing with Goose Crew and WND in 4 man and Apocalpyse in 7 man and team USA in 5 man IFAF in the FFWC. I play WR and Safety in 4 man and QB and safety in 7 man.
Which format do you enjoy the most and why?
I enjoy playing 4 man the best because it’s fast paced and you can’t hide a weak link everyone has to be able to play ball.
What is it about flag football that you enjoy the most and keeps you coming back to play year after year?
Being able to compete against the best at the highest level brings out the competitive nature to the fullest in me. That always keeps me coming back!
What are you most excited about in regards to Battle Orlando?
I’m most excited to see the sport trying to grow again at a national level. Its booming locally in south Florida but as of the past 5 years or so national events and places to play and travel have diminished.
Any tips or advice for new players out there, in regards to flag football techniques, running a team or travelling to tournaments?
My advice for teams and players for traveling and trying to get better is to PLAY in everything you can, it only benefits you in the long run. I’ve seen way to many teams coming up play in one top gun tourney and get beat by the best and that’s it never to be seen and heard from again. Truth be told it takes time and wisdom to really get to where you want to go it doesn’t happen overnight!
