Football Camp: Lagos

IFAF and Amobe Okoye Foundation welcomed over 200+ local American Football players to Lagos State Stadium for a day long flag football clinic.  The camp was an excellent opportunity for its newly trained African coaches to get their feet wet, and use the knowledge they've learned this week at the IFAF Coaching Clinic.  They represented well, mixing it up with NFL Players and IFAF Coaches.  Here's a few pictures from immediately following the event - much more to come from Africa!

Learning to throw is difficult - but we saw much progress!  In fact, the scoring for the Flag Football game opened with a 40 yard scoring strike -- the first in continental history?
