Local police officers, veterans play in youth flag football game

Who doesn’t love a little football in the fall?

In an effort to build positive and healthy community relationships, MercyElite Sports Performance held its fifth annual Justice Bowl Nov. 7. The game brings local law enforcement and veterans together with sixth to tenth grade students for a flag football tournament. 

The free event, held around Veterans Day every year, is meant to promote the values of justice, mercy, courage, stewardship, reverence and integrity among local youth. Six teams play in the tournament, one named after each value. This year, teams also adopted some precautions, like masks and some distancing, because of the pandemic.
