Alumni rise early, work hard for NYO

Alexis Gottlieb could have gone home to sleep after her night shift as a nurse at St. Joseph’s Hospital.  Instead, she headed to the Dowis Building for a 7:30 a.m. meeting of the newly formed NYO Alumni Association.

‘NYO is my entire childhood,’ Alexis says. ‘I started going to watch my brothers play baseball and basketball when I was about three months old, played baseball, softball and basketball through age 16 and continue to watch my sister play softball (as a 24-year-old). I . . . even decided to go into nursing after volunteering with the Christopher League.’ (Read More, Click Headline or Photo)

Coach Tony's Corner - "Leading With Optimism"

On October 23, the NFL game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks ended in a 6-6 tie.  Not only did the game end in a tie, but it was also the lowest scoring game in NFL history. 

In this game, both kickers had a chance to win the game for their team during the overtime period. 

First up was Arizona’s Chandler Catanzaro from 24 yards with 3:26 remaining…The kick was up…No good.

On the next drive, it was Seattle kicker, Stephen Hauschka’s turn to be the hero.  However, his kick didn’t find the uprights.

Both kickers had the same result, but the head coaches from each team had two totally different reactions... CLICK PHOTO TO READ MORE

The 10-year old Championship game was competitive all night, as both teams played tough until the very end.   The Tide set the tone early with a defensive stop of the Tigers on the opening series.  This was followed by a near-50 yard TD run by Wade Penn on the Tide's first play of the game.  [click photo to read more]

War Eagles Capture 7 Year Old Championship

The 7U championship game featured a battle of equally matched 7-2 teams, each of whom beat the other during the regular season.  The rubber-match championship contest featured the speedy scat backs of the Purple Hurricanes vs. the clock-eating, power running game of the War Eagles.  Each team scored two touchdowns on long and steady drives, but the difference maker was the War Eagles’ conversion of both their extra points.  The Hurricanes scored a touchdown in the final minutes to cut the deficit to 14-12 and lined up at the 8 yard line, seeking a game-tying two point conversion.  The Hurricanes threw a screen pass to their powerful tight end, but the War Eagles’ defense teamed up to bring him down, just short of the goal line, to preserve the narrow 14-12 victory.  A great way to end NYO’s inaugural season of 8-man football.

Congratulations to the 2016 NYO Bigs Champion Vikings!

The Vikings defeated the Chargers 25-6 to capture the 2016 BIGS Championship and complete their season with an outstanding 9-2 season!  After a tough hard-nosed defensive battle by both teams in the first quarter, the Vikings struck first on a beautiful pass and catch from QB Christopher Fielden to Nate Lyons and completed the extra point for a 7-0 lead early in the 2nd qtr.  [click photo to read more]
