Flag football kicks off season with day of games

After a year of waiting, months of pandemic planning and weeks of pre-season activity, National Flag Football League of Atlanta chose up sides and hit the field on Saturday.

“Masks on, cleats on, game on,” league President Justin Spears told Project Q last month as several LGBTQ sports leagues in Atlanta geared up for new seasons.

And so it was. The first of 10 weeks of gay gridiron action went down at Silverbacks Park in DeKalb County. Amid perfect weather, a roster of 12 teams in two divisions huddled up for their first matchups.

Standings after Week 1 finds Beckwith-Falcons, Las Margaritas and Henry’s placing first-through-third in the Falcons division, with Beckwith-United, State Farm and Irby’s topping the United Division.
