DAWGS At Football Tournament
The Special Olympics Flag Football Tournament was held in St. Louis on Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Rams training facility. The DAWGS (Disabled Athletes with Grundy Support) attended the games and brought home silver medals. While the DAWGS were arriving, the Rams players were getting ready to load their buses to head out for their game with the Dallas Cowboys. The athletes were treated like pros upon arrival even having lunch in the players lunch room. There were nine teams in attendance and it was exciting to play a tournament indoors without having to worry about the heat as the recent area tournament in Cameron had been cancelled due to excessive heat.
