Students show spirit in supporting camp

For the sixth year in a row, Horizon Prep used flag football to fundraise for a good cause with its Spirit Bowl tournament. Ten teams played in their biggest ever tournament, including local squads from Horizon, Nativity, St. James and Santa Fe Christian. The players were all 10 to 12 years old.

This year’s winner was The Children’s School, who bested Santa Fe Christian in the final game, 12-6.

In the last six years, the Spirit Bowl has raised over $11,000 for Camp Julian Oaks, a camp for abused and neglected children.

Tony Masa, Julian Oaks director told the players, told the athletes that the Spirit Bowl was about more than just winning a trophy. He said by raising money for the camp, they were helping bring hope to a lot of children.

“When you’re on the field getting tired or beat and you want to give up, remember you’re playing for a greater purpose,” Masa said.

Before the start of play, Mikhael Ricks, a former Charger and six-year player in the NFL, also took the time to speak to the young athletes about their opportunity to help make change in people’s lives.

Games were played on the Horizon and Nativity fields and the largest and loudest crowds were Horizon students, allowed to root for the home team on breaks and recesses. Children painted their hair the school color blue and wore crazy get-ups to show their spirit.
