Rowan County Youth Football League wraps up season

The Rowan County Youth Football League wrapped up its season Nov. 15 with All-Star and Super Bowl games at North Rowan High School.
In the 4th Grade All-Star game, the Salisbury/North Rowan team beat the West Rowan/Carson/South Rowan team 20-12.
In the 6th Grade All-Star game, the Carson/South Rowan team beat the Salisbury/East Rowan/Granite-Faith team 12-6.
In the 3rd & 4th Grade Super Bowl, East Rowan, after losing to Granite-Faith 21-14 during the regular season, emerged victorious, defeating Granite/Faith 34-7.
In the 5th & 6th Grade Super Bowl, West Rowan finished its season with an unblemished record, defeating second-place regular-season finisher North Rowan 27-12.
Founded in 1987, the RCYFL is a non-profit organization created to give children the opportunity to participate in organized youth tackle football and cheerleading.
This year, about 450 boys played on 14 YFL teams and about 90 girls participated on 12 cheerleading squads, representing all areas of Rowan County.
Before the season starts, teams practice four days a week, for two hours at a time; after the season begins, practice is three days a week.
Games are played at local high schools and middle schools. The league uses gate receipts to cover its costs, including referees and security personnel, and the host schools get the food concessions.
RCYFL Board members include Mike Ciaramello, Annie McDaniel, Kent Ryan, Mike McCullough, Romeo White, Debbie File and Keith Burris.
