Bullhead City Firebirds 11-and-under
Two teams from the Bullhead City Firebirds youth football program will be competing in the American Youth Football Nationals later this week in Orlando, Florida. The 14-and-under Firebirds and the 11-and-under Firebirds each earned national tournament berths. It will be a return trip for the 11-and-under team, which placed fourth last year. The teams have evolved in the game under the guidance and leadership of program president Amber Maish and head coach Matt Maish. Team Maish took on the Firebirds association in 2013 and, along with others, have devoted many hours to the players, their development and the success of the program. To help fund the teams’ trip to Florida, Firebird Football is conducting a raffle for two tickets — complete with parking passes and on-field pregame visit — to the 2019 PlayStation Fiesta Bowl, to be played Dec. 28 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Raffle tickets are $20 each. To purchase tickets or for more information, call 623-332-2026.
