Bucks County made Special Olympics Pennsylvania history on Saturday, October 24, 2015 by holding the first Flag Football scrimmage in the county, and certainly one of the first in the state. Head Coach Harry Schmidtt of Quakertown hosted Coach Rob Caywood and the Brave Bucks of Fairless Hills in the morning match-up.
Flag Football Sports Director, Kathy Adkins, is thrilled that Bucks County has launched this new and emerging sport. All of the athletes agreed that it was amazing to have this opportunity after weeks of training.
Many other Special Olympics counties have started training this fall, and will receive the opportunity to compete during the first Regional Invitational on November14th at the Newtown Athletic Club.
