The PJC men’s flag football team ended an accomplished season with a trip to the national competition held at the University of West Florida, Dec. 29-31.

“This year’s team could have won and were talented enough to win,” said Doug Rogers, the team’s coach.

But they fell short, only making it to the quarterfinals.  “We had a chance with 3 seconds left and we were down by two,” said Rogers.  “If the weather and officiating had gone our way we might have won.  Our poor play early caused it too.”

In the regional tournament, PJC beat the University of Alabama in the finals, 25-13 giving them entry to the national tournament.  They were also runners-up in the state competition.
