2014 FLAG Flag Football Scholarship Recipient

The FLAG Flag Football League is very proud to present our second-annual scholarship to Elizabeth Foley. A senior at Quincy High School, Elizabeth has accumulated a long list of academic honors, achievements, and extra-curricular activities. A member of the National Honor Society, Science National Honor Society, Massachusetts State History Bowl team, Relay for Life high school team co-captain, Boston Youth Environmental Network Youth Environmental Leadership Team Member, and Rotary Youth Leadership Award recipient, Elizabeth has a distinguished high school career and a strong commitment to her community. Her commitment to service is evident by her many volunteer hours for the American Cancer Society, Quincy Youth Soccer TOPS program and the Summer Camp Program at the YMCA.

Elizabeth is the epitome of what this scholarship recipient should be. As an openly LGBT student athlete, voted by her peers to captain both her high school soccer and softball teams, Elizabeth is a role model and leader who has made sports safer for and more inclusive of LGBTQ student athletes. She has been there for friends and teammates who have struggles with their own identities, and she has helped homophobic friends and classmates realize that the stereotypes they’ve held and ignorant comments they’ve made about the LBGTQ community are anything but true. As Elizabeth wrote, “We must stand for acceptance and appreciation of the differences of others. We must take pride in being ourselves. In doing so, we’ll move towards a bright and fearless future where everyone can compete with pride in their hearts. That future is one that I will do anything in my power to strive towards for as long as I am a coach, as long as I am an athlete, and for as long as I am a human being.” In college, Elizabeth plans to major in Secondary Education and English so that she can become a high school English teacher. How fortunate her future students will be! The FLAG Flag Football League is honored to present this scholarship to such a deserving young woman.


The “Old Timers” continue their reign as Snow Bowl champions  

Thank you to all the players and spectators who came out on Saturday, February 2 for the battle between our league’s old- timers (35 and older) and whippersnappers. For the first time in Snow Bowl history, the younger players were represented in the final match. While the game was close, the older team prevailed and continue their reign for a third year.
