Whalers fly the flag

Alumni, current players gather for annual tradition of flag football showdown

With the holidays in full swing, the Ballenas Whalers football program once again saw action on the field. This time, it was of the flag football variety.

The exhibition drew 24 players in total, both current and former, for some spirited action on the Whalers’ stomping grounds. A tradition for the Whalers football program, it gives former and current players a chance to meet, catch up and share their love for the game of football. “It was great to see everyone out,” Whalers coach Jeremy Conn said. “Some teams do alumni games once a year but we do it several times throughout the year. We get current players coming out to our events, so it’s a great way for our alumni and present players to get to meet and really develop that bond that the game of football can bring, especially for us as part of the Whalers family.”
