North East Little Pickers would like to say thanks to their supporters and sponsors during the 2020 season.
C&C printing (raffle tickets), Bob Martin State Farm (neck gaiters), Phantom Graphics (Flag football shirts), North East Borough (use of Heard Park), Country Fair (raffle gift card), Sander’s Markets (Raffle gift card) and David Mazza (raffle gift card).
Also North East News Journal, DEEJ Experience and Jon Triana for the live streaming.
The goal for the football program was to create a flag football program as a feeder to the 4/5/6 grade Gridder program, and that is a feeder program for the school.
The COVID-19 pandemic threw a wrench in those plans as it did for everything else. After multiple hurdles and phases there was finally an opening and with the help of the individuals listed they were able to put together a season.
Currently the 5/6 Little Pickers are 2-0-1 with three games left in the season.
This week the first- through fourth-grade flag football kids started playing games and their season will run into the beginning of October.
