The first annual KTBB Scholastic All-Stars Flag Football Tournament was a huge success Saturday at the Green Acres Baptist Church South Recreational Fields better know as “The ROC” just south of Tyler.
The Goon Squad, a team made up mostly of former John Tyler players captured the first-ever title by defeating State Champs in the Championship Game. State Champs was comprised of members of this past season’s Chapel Hill Bulldogs Class 3A Div. I State Championship team.
