Every year at Springville Junior High there is a special event:  students vs. teachers flag football.  Each year, students think they will win but are always proven wrong.

“There are six teams, five student teams and one teacher team; the overall winner is the team that has the most wins," said Mr. Brian Rice.  Even though it seems like the student would have an advantage with more student, the teachers are usually  the victors because they are bigger, smarter and more handsome than the students, as Mr. Rice put it.

The flag football game consists of ten minute games and whoever accumulates the most wins is the winner. "It was fun and unexpected," said Dan Nava, student at Springville Junior High School.  Students have always been willing to challenge the teachers in everything, whether it is in sports, academic progress or just life. The students always want a new challenge.

“Hopefully the students will just have fun,’’ said Mr. Rice.  The game was held on Tuesday, November 10th and the teachers won again, undefeated.
