We had a thrilling time with Coach Todd McArthur (former NFL pro) and AJ Martin (plays for Kansas and looking to get drafted this year) as they came out to show residents how to train and prepare for a pro football game. They taught our teens good skills and football techniques along with how important it is to have love for the game but also a good education.
Residents of all ages then played a very entertaining game of flag football. It was a joy to see the community come together, father/sons, neighbors, old/young, for the love of the sport. The game was close but the yellow team won with a score of 56-49! We look forward to making this a Pomona Thanksgiving tradition for years to come!!!
