Coggin Intermediate School has annual 6th grade Super Bowl

Coggin Intermediate School in Brownwood held its annual 6th grade Super Bowl at Gordon Wood Stadium Thursday morning.

At the beginning of the school year, students interested in playing flag football were split off into six teams. After a seven game regular season and a single-elimination playoff, only two teams remained: the Deflatriots and the Dominators.

"We played this team first and they beat by a couple points," said Hudson Reagan of the Deflatriots. "We were telling them we were going to see them in the Super Bowl again."

"We're both competitive teams,"said Caden Carnes of the Dominators.

After making it through the playoff gauntlet, the Deflatriots and Dominators kicked off what could be the beginning of much longer football careers.

"This is their beginning to be a Brownwood Lion," said Brandon Brown, a 5th and 6th grade P.E. teacher who set up the event, which has lasted for more than 10 years.

"It was just a very good honor for us to finally make it here," said Colbin Burleson of the Dominators.

The game opened up with a kickoff returned for a touchdown by Issac Hall of the Dominators. In a back-and-forth game, the Deflatriots found themselves leading 16-12 at halftime.

"I never thought that this was going to happen," said Reagan.

After halftime performances by the Brownwood High School band and Coggin Intermediate School cheerleaders, only 22 minutes remained in the season.

Down 24-12, the Dominators scored on a rush by Cristyn Villarreal. A successful two-point conversion made it 24-20 with less than five minutes remaining. However, the Deflatriots knocked the air out of the Dominators with two quick scores, led by Quarterback Hudson Reagan, and the Deflatriots won 40-20.

Both teams were glad they participated in flag football through their school.

"I thought it was really fun," said Jake Jetton of the Deflatriots. "Got to get out of school early that's good."

"It was fun playing around, throwing the ball, catching," said Issac Hall of the Dominators.

Coach Brown said he was proud of the kids.

"I watch them grow," said Brown. "I watch them play in junior high, and I watch them play in high school and it's just amazing to see them grow."
