The Corinth Chargers peewee football league is headed to the Super Bowl at Okolona High School on Saturday.
All three teams— 7-8, 9-10 and 11-12— have earned spots in the championship game after about 15 weeks of hard work, said Xavier Neal, who owns the Chargers with Red Clark.
The fact that all three teams are going to the Super Bowl shows the determination of the approximately 50 children who take part in the league, Neal said.
Moreover, Neal said that the league is blessed to have the support of many great coaches, parents, sponsors and other community members.
In addition to teaching the youth about football, the Chargers staff also puts a big emphasis on the children making good grades and demonstrating good behavior at school.
The children will get a ring for playing in the Super Bowl. There is a participation ring and a championship ring. They are striving for the championship, but mainly Neal hopes the league gives the children a positive experience that can help them in their future lives.
The 7-8 and 11-12-year-old teams will play the Columbus Cowboys in the Super Bowl, and the 9-10-year-old team will play the Aberdeen Knights.
