Atlanta Falcons Host College Showcase for High School Girls’ Flag Football Players

The sport of girls’ flag high school continues to soar in the state of Georgia, thanks to the Atlanta Falcons.

Earlier this month, the NFL team held its fourth annual High School Girls Flag Football Showcase at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Over 200 young women attended the event that was held in conjunction with the Women’s Flag Finals for NAIA and NJCAA schools. 

The student-athletes had the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in front of NAIA, NJCAA coaches and NCAA representatives, offering them a potential pathway to pursue their passion at the collegiate level.

High School Football America’s Jeff Fisher spoke with the Falcons Community Relations Manager Danielle Renner about the growth of the showcase. You can watch that interview below.

To go along with the showcase, the Falcons also announced that 42 high schools across Georgia will receive grants from the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation to launch girls' flag football programs. Currently, 265 high schools throughout Georgia have integrated girls' flag football into their athletic programs.

Nationwide, 11 states have sanctioned girls’ flag football as an official varsity sport.
