Valley Forge Sports was thrilled to once again host the world’s largest all-girls flag football tournament at The Proving Grounds! Conshohocken welcomed over 150 teams from 19 states and 3 countries this past weekend – check out this great clip from 6abc WPVI-TV Philadelphia!
“CONSHOHOCKEN, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — “I could not even throw a football before, like, five years ago,” said Bridget Keyser. “I’ve always seen it, like, dominated by guys around here and stuff like that.”
Keyser would soon be proven wrong when a group of friends asked her to play flag football. Reluctant at first, the Hatfield teenager has since become the quarterback for one of the Athena Athletics 17u girls team.
“We’ve grown so much and it’s become one big support family,” she said. “And friends from all over the world, it’s insane.”
Keyser and her team have the chance to play against some of those faraway friends and adversaries at this weekend’s ‘We Run The World’ female-only flag football tournament. The action is taking place at the Proving Grounds in Conshohocken.
The event was created through the Flag Football Life organization, founded by Mike Reimel of Lansdale. This year’s is its third iteration.”
