In addition to the great play on the field, the league also celebrated a once in a lifetime experience for the players. The NDYFL A-team, comprised of players in fifth and sixth grade, had the opportunity to play at Lucas Oil Stadium before the match-up between the Indianapolis Colts and the St. Louis Rams. The team arrived early and played an exhibition match against a team selected from the Evansville Bosse youth football program. Following the exhibition game, the players, parents, and coaches attended the game. Additionally, the Colts organization offered the players and coaches the opportunity to attend the pre-game activities on the field and hold the flag during the national anthem. Players had the chance to greet and wish good luck to their favorite Colts players and Indianapolis Head Coach Chuck Pagano personally greeted each player. The whole team greatly enjoyed the experience and the NDYFL Board hopes to be able to offer similar experiences for future teams.
Overall, the North Decatur Youth Football League had a great deal to celebrate and preparations have already begun for the 2014 season. The NDYFL will be hosting its camp later this spring and will hold open enrollment at the end of the school year and prior to next year’s season.
