The Team

FORT SILL, Okla.-The 31st Air Defense Artillery Brigade flag football team is currently 6-0 and as the reigning installation champions, expectations are high as the end of the regular season approaches. Many players returned from last year's championship team but also welcomed many new players.

"From the first practice our goal has been to repeat as post champions but that's easier said than done," said 1LT Michael Savageau, coach of the 31st Air Defense Artillery Brigade flag football team.

The coach chose players for the team that could play any position on the field at anytime and wanted athletes with track-speed and football-ability. With two teams, the 'A' and 'B' teams, the "Ready and Vigilant" players have the ability to scrimmage every day in practice and challenge one another to get better.

"Every player on the team is not only important but aids us in our quest to repeat as post champions," said Savageau. "With 25 players and a roster of only 15, the additional 10 players know they may not play in the game, but their impact is just as great as those playing the game."

It all comes down to execution.

"If we play our game, and we execute our offense we are capable of out-scoring our opponents in every game we play," added Savageau.

Support from the Soldiers and Families that come out and support them each week is greatly appreciated. These Soldiers are proud to represent 31st ADA BDE and they truly embody the ideals and values of a championship team.
