Willowbrook’s new Flag Football Team has winning start to season

On Aug. 27, Willowbrook’s new Flag Football Team (pictured above) competed in the Chicago Public Schools (CPS)/West Suburban Conference (WSC) Flag Football Jamboree.

The team participated in two scrimmages and won both, 18-0 and 19-0. The team also had the opportunity to participate in drills with NFL FLAG masters and meet Dr. Jen Welter, the first female to serve as an NFL coach.

Although the day was physically challenging, team members improved their skills and are hopeful for the upcoming season. The team’s first game will begin at 3 p.m. on Sept. 10 versus Proviso East (at Oak Park and River Forest High School).
