For the second consecutive year, the Jaguars selected Duval Dynasty, the Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Florida’s NFL FLAG all-star team, to represent Jacksonville at the NFL FLAG Championships in Orlando. The championship tournament was held in late January in conjunction with the NFL’s Pro Bowl Week at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

Coaches Rickie Simon Jr. and Troy Soloman led the group of 13- to 14-year-olds to compete on the national stage in one of the highest levels of flag football. In addition to Duval Dynasty, more than 70 youth teams from 24 states across four divisions competed in the annual culmination for the country’s premier youth flag football program.

CB Jalen Ramsey continued a Jaguars tradition when he and the Nike Jordan brand partnered to give each competitor a brand-new pair of Jordan football cleats to wear during the competition. Last season, RB Leonard Fournette surprised each member of the Duval Dynasty with a pair of Under Armour cleats prior to the championship. 

“Flag football gives young athletes an opportunity to develop physical skills, grow in confidence and play a sport they love,” said Boys & Girls Club CEO/President Paul Martinez. “NFL FLAG and USA Football provide the resources we need to deliver the fun and high-quality experience that our coaches, players and parents deserve.”

Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Florida noted that the partnership with the Jaguars and their implementation of NFL FLAG into their program has resulted in a tremendous jump in Clubs’ retention rate by keeping teens engaged through the power of sports.
