Penn Law's Flag Football League

With the Philadelphia skyline framing their pass rush, two members of Penn Law's Flag Football League bring the heat on the quarterback. More than 100 students participated in Flag Football, which features seven players, rather than the customary eleven, on each side. To make a tackle, defenders have to pull out one of two flags (more like streamers) attached to a belt worn by the offensive player. There are no corporate sponsors or skyboxes — we're not sure about excessive celebrations in the end zone. This year's champion was Posse Comitatus, who outlasted Different Shades of Brown, 26-21, at Franklin Field on a blustery, rainy day in December.
