Intramural flag football pitted Aggie against Aggie during the first game at 7 p.m. on campus Sunday, Sept. 15th.  Fans lined the bleachers as registered players grabbed team colors, belts and flags.

Megan Canfield, Student Activities Specialist, said each team will play each other three or four times before the big tournament to decide the winner. As with all other intramural sports at Cameron, Aggies are competing not only for the champion title, but also for“Bad Axe” intramurals champion shirts. They are also fighting for their picture in the display case at the Aggie Rec Center.

“I’m working on doing a smaller board for people who have won in the past,” Canfield said. “So, people can go back several years and see their pictures.”

This display is intended to be more motivation for past, present and future sports fanatics. According to some of the players, it has already been a factor in their decisions to join.

Victor Jacobs, decked out in his red intramural uniform, kept his head in the game, helping the Pig Skin Pros win their first game. Although the league just started, the heat is intense.

So far, the Pig Skin Pros are tied with The Gamers at one win and zero losses. This makes them one win and one loss ahead of the following team.

The Monstars fell with a current score of zero wins and one loss. This team with a “Space Jam”-inspired title still has an opportunity to be seeded in the top spot.

Pig Skin Pros, led by Ryan Means, beat Oklahoma Storm, led by Carson Troutman. In this first game of the season,  the Pros displayed that their title was accurate.

The Gamers, led by Kerry White, beat the Monstars, led by Brandon Bartlett.

Pig Skin Pros then beat the Monstars, 36-14 in their final game. Gamers beat Oklahoma Storm 36-6.

Men’s flag football games will take place at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m on Sundays. Games are lined up for the next few weeks.

The Gamers play the Monstars 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, giving the latter a chance for redemption.

The Gamers play the Pig Skins Pros at 6:30 p.m. in the game that will break the tie. The Monstars play Oklahoma Storm at 6:30 p.m. Pig Skin Pros play Oklahoma Storm at 5:30 p.m.

So far, the Pig Skin Pros are tied with The Gamers at one win and zero losses. The Monstars fell with a current score of zero wins and one loss. With at least six more games to go, each team still has a shot at bragging rights and the title of ultimate “Bad Axe.”

Canfield said that she thinks it will be a good season and is excited to see what happens.

Students who are interested have from the first day of class in the fall and spring semesters until noon on the day of intramural tournaments to sign up and create teams for each sport.
