Helmer’s Heroes

To take a break from all our studying the the Fisher College of Business, the Graduate Assistants in the Graduate Programs Office decided to put together an intramural flag football team to play on Sunday nights.  In honor of Rob Chabot’s dog, we decided on a team name of Helmer’s Heroes. We were unsure as to the level of skill we would have so we decided to join the Co-Rec B league. Our first game we all showed up eager to get the season started! We had 4 guys and 6 girls there the first week. We came out with a bang beating the other team 68-0!!! I think we were all a little surprised at how well we played each with each other. We were all able to get involved with the play and had a great first game. It was great to be able to get out there and practice some things we could maybe use in the upcoming games.

The following week we played a much more competitive team. We were down a player for the first half but still managed to keep them to only a 15 point lead. By the start of the 2nd half we were at full strength and able to start our comeback victory. Andrew Gropper was able to start the comeback with an interception to run back for a touchdown! From there we were able to take over the game and with the help of a few mistakes by the other team (regarding the rules in which we are all still learning them). Tyler was able to get the second touchdown for us as well as the one point conversion in which he made an acrobatic catch to secure the win for our team! We are undefeated going into our last regular season game this weekend.

Check back to see how our season progresses!
