Bob Brennan Football Challenge Set For This Saturday

June 22, 2017
by Dan Voigt , Emmetsburg News

The Second Annual Bob Brennan Memorial Football Challenge is set for this Saturday with a day filled full of activities for youth. The event will get underway at 8 a.m. Saturday, June 24, at the Emmetsburg Middle School/Flag Football Field.

Registration will start at 7:30 a.m. Saturday at the field, with the first competitive event slated to start at 8 a.m. with the 5 On 5 Football Challenge.

Five-player teams will square off against each other in scrimmages, with winners playing out for a team title.

The 5 On 5 competition is slated to conclude around 11:30 a.m.

At 10 a.m., the Lineman Challenge event will take place. The event is designed for the football lineman to test the players' skills and abilities with dummies and agility. Each contestant will race the clock, with the best finish earning the title of champion lineman.

Also taking place at 10 a.m. will be the Backs' Challenge. Similar in nature to the lineman's challenge, this event will test the skills of backs and their agility, once again in a timed event.

At 11:30 a.m., the Placekicker's Challenge will take place. Kickers will have an opportunity to compete, testing their skills in kicking for distance and accuracy.

Concluding the day's activities will be a 7 On 7 Challenge, which will get underway at 12:30 p.m. Like the 5 On 5 event, teams of seven players will scrimmage in the event under controlled conditions.

The event was created as a way to offer youth and high school football players to keep in shape during the off-season, as well as a way to support the Emmetsburg Flag Football Program.

The program was named in memory of Bob Brennan, a long-time resident and supporter of Emmetsburg High School Athletics. The Emmetsburg Middle School/Flag Football Field was officially named the Bob Brennan Field in June of 2016 in his memory.
