“We are proud to be partnering with First Baptist to bring Football ‘N’ America to Bossier City. FNA is all about friends, family and football, and will provide a great opportunity for the children and families in the community to enjoy the game of football,” Brees said in a video message.

“We could not be more excited to strengthen and expand our growing sports outreach vision with this partnership,” Pastor Brad Jurkovich, the church’s senior pastor said. “We believe many kids, students and families will not only have a great football experience but they will know there is hope for their lives.”

FB Sports has as its goal to promote competitive play in a positive environment, Jurkovich said.

“This environment helps kids and adults develop spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and socially. These values very much align with Brees’ organization, whose motto is, “Friends, Family, and Football,” Jurkovich added.

Brees, the winner of the 2019 ESPY Award for Best Record-Breaking Performance and Super Bowl XLIV MVP, founded Football ‘N’ America in 2017 as a non-contact co-ed youth flag football league for students of all skill levels in kindergarten through 8th grade. The league promotes safety, sportsmanship and athletic development among youth.

First Bossier’s Football ‘N’ America league is for youth in kindergarten through 8th grade and will begin Fall 2021. Registration opens May 15, 2021. Please visit www.playfna.com for more information.
