Father and Son Bowl ’09

Posted on January 6, 2009 by



There is a great event coming up in a few weeks I want to let you all know about. A friend of mine that I work with, Darin Clark, has created an awesome father/son football game in Franklin called the Father and Son Bowl. What began as a pick-up game in their back yard in 2007, grew to a community event with 160 fathers and sons last year.

This will be the first year for Cooper and me to play and I’ve already got some of my neighbors coming. This is just another way to connect with your boys and show them they truly are beloved sons! I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning than playing a bowl game with fathers and sons.

One of the other great aspects of this game is ALL proceeds benefit orphans both locally and abroad, so are being a father to the fatherless through this event!

Here are the details:

Fathers with sons* from ages 5 to 75. You could be 95 with a 75 year old son or 25 with a 5 year old son. You don’t have to be athletic or in shape, it’s all about having a good time! Fathers and son-in-laws, Grandfathers and grandsons can play together too.

*If you are a son (or know of one) whose father is unable to play, you can still sign up and will be placed on a team if space is available. Just email us and let us know the situation.

Teams will be chosen at random. Father and son(s) will play on the same team. Requests for groups to play together will be considered, but cannot be guaranteed.

6 on 6, two hand touch, backyard football. Each team will play one game. Special rules are in place to ensure the safety and inclusion of our little guys too.
