Flag Football

Strap on your spikes, throw on your athletics wear, and slap on your eye black…it’s time to play some football! Compete against your brothers, new members, other student organizations, and your alumni in a game on the gridiron. This activity can promote brotherhood or be transformed into a philanthropy event.

  • Cleats
  • Mini cones (unless an actual football field is available)
