BMC holds second Turkey Bowl football tournament
BMC Public Affairs:
For the second time in its short history, the Brigade Modernization Command held a Turkey Bowl flag football tournament in conjunction with its Holiday Feast to celebrate the winter holiday season. The football field adjacent to Stout Gym was the site of the games that were played between senior teams and junior teams.
The Black Team juniors, consisting of players under the age of 40, took on the Orange Team juniors first. Coached by Chief Warrant Officer 2 Travis McClendon from the Brigade Modernization Integration Division, the Black Team scored four touchdowns to the Orange Team’s single TD by halftime. Orange Team coach Lt. Col. Andy Morgado, the BMC G3 division chief, spurred his team on to a better performance in the second half. Although they increased their score by two TDs to the Black Team’s single TD, they still lost. The final score was Black Team 31 and Orange Team 19.
The second-round game included the senior teams with players who were age 40 and over. Captain of the Black Team seniors was Lt. Col. Keith McGuire from BMID, and captain of the Orange Team was Lt. Col. Chad Hackley, BMC G2. Turnovers in this game were critical and helped the Orange Team win by a score of 18 to 0. Col. Greg Baine, chief of BMID, was coach of the victorious team.
Referees were Lt. Col. Tim Lawrence from the Training and Doctrine Command Analysis Cell, Sgt. 1st Class Fabian Echevarria from the BMC Training and Evaluation Division and Cesar Portillo from the Mission Command Complex. They were charged with enforcing the Morale, Welfare and Recreation rules for flag football.
As soon as the games ended, all players and their family members were invited to attend the BMC Holiday Feast at Hinman Hall, which included the award ceremony for the Turkey Bowl.
Brig. Gen. Randal Dragon, BMC commanding general, and his top enlisted advisor, Command Sgt. Maj. William “Ron” Hambrick, handed out team and individual certificates, as well as trophies for the winning teams.
