Drew Brees Launching Co-ed Youth Flag Football League 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jun 28, 2017 1:15 pm

Drew Brees is launching a co-ed youth flag football league that he hopes will grow into a safer alternative to tackle football across the country.

"I think that this has the opportunity to really save the game of football, honestly," Brees said.

The Football 'N' America league will kick off this fall in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Covington, Louisiana before expanding into other states next year and possibly nationwide someday.

"I think we're filling a void that is much-needed," Brees said. "We felt like, you know what, we have the opportunity here to really create what will be the premier youth co-ed flag football league in America."
