Hillsborough County’s youth took the field on December 7th in the Under Armour Youth Football Game Day of Champions. Eight teams from local youth football league’s fulfilled their dreams to play in Raymond James Stadium in the 2008 Under Armour Game Day of Champions.
Teams from Tampa Bay Youth Football League, West Coast Youth Football Conference, Mid Florida Football Conference, and Pasco PAL’s Lutz Chiefs participated in the Game Day of Champions.
The Game Day of Champions was started by Hillsborough County Commissioner Jim Norman in 1994. It was Commissioner Norman's dream to give the young athletes from Hillsborough County memories that they could carry with them for the rest of their life.
Under Armour, a proud sponsor of the event and partner of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, kindly distributed t-shirts, socks, and wristbands to all the participating athletes.
The results from the 2008 game included:
|Town N Country Packers (Pee-Wee)||defeated||New Tampa Wildcats (Midgets)|
