Bulldogs Aiming to Go Far in Flag Football
Last spring, the Sigma Kappa Delta Bulldogs made a mid-season splash in Pensacola Christian College's intramural flag football league by installing a spread offensive scheme that utilized rugby-style play highlighted by laterals and quarterback option runs. After starting the season poorly, the Bulldogs recovered and made the playoffs, due in large part to their explosive offense.
"The past two years, we have surprised other collegians and made it to the playoffs. But we've lost both times by one score to teams that have gone on to play in the companionship game. I believe with several young and athletic freshmen added to our roster, we could go all the way," said Bulldogs Athletic Director Jonathan Hartono, a sophomore Sport Management major.
"We have a solid core team that will get us far, but we need a few more good players that can contribute to get us over the hump," Bulldogs senior quarterback Michael Civale, a Mechanical Engineering major, told the Campus Post.
Last season, Civale led the Bulldogs with a team-high 30 touchdowns. Civale's stellar play was recognized by his peers, who voted him into the 2013 Flag Football All-Star Game as a starting quarterback.
Incoming freshmen will get to choose a collegian to join this fall following PCC's "Greek Rush" parade. Bulldogs Vice President J.J. Vongswady, who organized the 'Dogs' 2013 collegian outing which featured a pair of roasted pigs, says the Bulldogs are "like a family."
"There will be a lot of collegians to choose from—if you want one to call family, join the Bulldogs," said Vongswady, a senior Pre-Medicine major.
If you're an incoming freshmen, talk to your roommates and explore all of the collegian stands during "Greek Rush" before making a final decision. Be sure to also talk to some Bulldogs; we'd love to have you join us!0
