In the Faculty/Staff vs. Students Flag Football game played Thursday evening under the lights at Southfield Lathrup High School, the students came out on top, 36-6.

Kevin Finn led the faculty/staff team at quarterback. Scott Schneider was a defensive specialist and contributed a critical sack. Steve Brown led the offensive line. Mary Pinkowski scored on the first drive of the game for the faculty/staff team, but the over-the-hill gang couldn’t find the scoreboard again.

Marcus Simon was a standout at wide receiver for the students’ team and Jad El-Zir completed over 80 per cent of his passes at quarterback. Their first play of the evening was an 80-yard touchdown pass.
