From The Parks and Recreation Department
The West Park Hurricanes Football Regular Season came to a close in November and all seven teams made it to the playoffs of the Miami Extreme Youth Football League. The competition was fierce and 5 teams made it to the final round. We were able to have three of those teams reach the championships; all three teams represented the City and its residents with pride. Not only did they make it but they all won! The Pee-Wee’s were named the Miami Extreme Invitation Champions and the 75lb and 90lb teams won their respective Miami Extreme Championships. Each will represent the League as we play in the Orange Bowl Championship game.
At the culmination of the season, the best of the best can look forward to the OBYFA Championships presented by Sports Authority and the right to play for the famed Orange Bowl Trophy at FIU Stadium on the campus of Florida International University. The stadium seats 45,000 people and is the only on-campus Division I stadium south of Orlando in Florida. The two-day championship event, televised by FSFlorida/Sun Sports, pits champions from the different leagues against each other to crown winners in eight weight-class divisions. This year’s event is scheduled to be held on December 10 and 11.
Wish our teams luck as they play for the title!
