North Decatur Youth Football celebrates another year

GREENSBURG – The North Decatur Youth Football League recently held its annual awards banquet to celebrate the closing of the 2013 football season.

This season held substantial changes to NDYFL, including a new league, a new championship for one division, and a once-in-a-lifetime experience for another. The players and parents all had an opportunity to relive the fun and look forward to the beginning of work for the year to come.

One of the most significant changes for the 2013 season involved a change of leagues. This season, the NDYFL joined the Central Indiana Banta Football League, one of the oldest and most established leagues in the state of Indiana. The CIBFL is composed of teams of players from Kindergarten through sixth grade from programs in Beech Grove, Bartholomew County, Edinburgh, Indian Creek, Brown County, Decatur County Nightmares, Triton Central, Indianapolis Lutheran, Trader’s Point Christian Academy. For the 2013 season, NDYFL fielded teams in the C league (K-2), B league (3-4), and two teams in the A league (fifth and sixth).

While all of the North Decatur teams fared well in their inaugural season with the CIBFL, two teams had the opportunity to play in championship games this year. The fifth grade JV team lost a close-fought battle to perennial favorite Indy Lutheran Jr. Saints in the JV championship game. Earlier in the season, the fifth grade team delivered the Junior Saints their only defeat in the past three years and the young Chargers held their own throughout the championship tournament. The NDYFL C team, comprised of players in Kindergarten through second grade, dominated their league and ultimately won the CIBFL championship for that division. The C-team went 10-0 through the regular season and playoffs and outscored their opponents 230 – 64. The 21 player squad scored on every possession except one and gave up only one turnover for the entire season. The championship trophy for the C-team now sits in the North Decatur Elementary School trophy case.
