2019 Fall Flag Football Winners

The LVP’s were crowned the winners over the Marshall University School of Medicine flag football team in the fall intramural flag football championship game Wednesday night.

“I think this season went overall pretty well; we had some really competitive teams,” Coordinator of Competitive Sports and Camps Jonathan Sanders said. “A lot of good matchups and even better ones in the playoffs, and we had an excellent championship game.”

The game started off going back and forth, with both teams shutting each other down on defense until graduate student Cameron Johnson found senior Deonte Joplin in the back of the endzone for a touchdown pass that led to the first score of the game. MUSOM scored as well on the next drive when they had a long touchdown pass of their own.

The LVP’s scored again when senior Chase Young caught a touchdown pass in the corner of the endzone from Johnson. The LVP’s got another score when senior Corbin Oliver had an interception and ran it all the way back for a touchdown.

Oliver was named MVP of the game, having three interceptions and one touchdown.

“It was a really fun season and I’m just glad we could end it with the championship,” Oliver said. “I can’t wait for the spring season, and I think the Rec is doing a great job with this league.”

The Rec will offer a spring flag football season next semester, while the basketball and soccer leagues will be starting next week.
