A flag football team in the Fort Mill Parks & Recreation League has wrapped up their season with their 5th straight championship.

   How they did it is an amazing story.

   The Fort Mill Steelers mix faith and fundamentals in building a successful team, according to one of the coaches, Jeffrey Terrell. His son Jackson plays quarterback and safety on the team. Terrell says they are simply teaching young men how to win on and off the football field.

    The other coach is Danny Jugan, whose son Michael plays running back on the team. He also coaches youth basketball and coaches his daughter EV in a younger age group.    

   The Fort Mill Steelers are the first Flag Football team in the town’s league to go 11-0 in a season. They’ve won 48 out of their last 50 games. And there’s a reason for it.

     “Danny brings his faith and values into each practice and each game teaching the boys’ life lessons each week and teaching them character and integrity,” Terrell said.

     Jeffrey said he spends many hours each week preparing these young men for “the next level,” teaching them fundamentals of good, sound football. He also aims to teach the boys how to properly prepare and set goals with the hope that these boys will take these skills with them at season end.

   Flag football is played each Spring and Fall and they are always looking for more players and more coaches.  For more information, click here. https://fortmillsc.gov/214/Football
