Stockdale youth league reflects on season
STOCKDALE -- The Stockdale Christian Federation of Police Officers (CFPO) tackle football league has completed another exciting season.
The year was highlighted by the Pee Wee team (ages 7-8) making it to the final four with a Patriot Bowl appearance. The team eventually fell to the San Marcos Cowboys by a narrow margin. In the Senior division (ages 11-13), the Brahmas advanced to the Alamo Bowl, where they earned a convincing win over the New Braunfels Toros.
The Mighty Might flag team (ages 5-6) made the playoffs and competed well, but did not advance to a bowl game. While rebuilding this year, the Junior team (ages 9-10) played well, and came within one touchdown of making the playoffs.
The league organizers would like to thank all the parents and players from Stockdale, Nixon, and surrounding areas for their time and efforts in making the season a success. A big thanks also goes out to the coaches: Adam Valadez, Michael Marquez, Stephen Lerma, Brandon Zella, Audie Trammell, Jason Grant, Eric Gann, B.J. Soto, and Monty McGuffin, as well as all the others for their hard work and patience in completing another great season.
Special thanks go to the team moms for organizing schedules, providing snacks, assisting with fund-raisers, and tending to all the bumps and bruises. The league would also like to thank team sponsors Audie and Teresa Trammell, Country Girl Creations, and Legend Concrete for their support!
The Stockdale CFPO league is here to help develop the youth by teaching the sport of football with Christian values like hard work, dedication, and teamwork. In addition, the organization is now a member of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), where the Super Bowl Champions in all four divisions travel to Florida to compete for a national championship. This gives the league a new goal and a wonderful opportunity for future seasons.
