2017 6th Grade Tier 1 Champions!

Since ACYFA joined the NSFL/TCNYFL in 2015, we have produced Tier 3 Champions, Tier 2 Champions, and Single Game Champions.  But this year marks our first entry as Tier 1 Champions, meaning we are the best team in all the league for that grade.  This honor goes to the 6th Grade Armstrong Cooper Hawks, lead by Anthony Thomas and his great assistant coaches.

Including the playoffs, the Hawks record was 11-1, ending with an 11-game win streak.  The Hawks scored 336 points, and gave up only 28 points.  What a year!
