It was the big game for little league football players last Saturday. Eight teams played beginning at 10 a.m. with the Minors in the Chesterfield Quarterback League Superbowl. The league is celebrating 60 years and is the oldest little league association in the state of Virginia.
It was Scott Scorpions against Spring Run Huskies. Scott Minors hit the field with eight wins and zero losses and they were not about to lose the Superbowl game. Down to the last few minutes with the score 13 to 12 in Scorpions favor, No. 4, Shamari Earls made his third touchdown in the last couple of minutes of the game. Even though the Huskies continued to play hard, their offense was not strong enough to give them the win. Final score, Scott 19 Spring Run 12.
Head coach Brian Foutz said this win was extra special for his 38 years of coaching little league. “I have been in it for a long time,” he said. “It is all special, but this one is very special coming to the end of my career as a coach. To go out like this, it is a wonder feeling. You don’t win a superbowl without special kids and these are very special kids.”
