ARKANSAS FOOTBALL LEAGUE GOES 3 FOR 3

Three AAU football teams from Arkansas traveled to Dallas to play in the Battle of the Border AAU tournament at AT&T Dallas Cowboys Stadium and all three teams came back with a trophy. Reggie Swinton, former Dallas Cowboy, is the football commissioner and coach of the Arkansas AAU Football League and he said it was a great opportunity for his teams.

His 8U, 10U, and 12U teams all took home first place trophies and also had a great time touring the Cowboys' facilities and field.

"It was fun and we got the chance to go to the lockers," said one young football star. "We had a chance to play in Cowboys Stadium and we actually beat Texas."

Congratulations to League Director and Arkansas Football District Sport Director, Reggie Swinton, and his teams for having a great 2013 season!
