It was an outstanding weekend for the Thornwood Special Olympics Flag Football Team.  They started off the season taking 1st place in the Springfield Invitational.  The team played amazing and did an outstanding job.  Each player on the team scored at least once for the t-birds.  Samuel Moore played quarterback and did an amazing job leading the team both on and off the field for the weekend, he showed to be a strong captain and leader for the team.  The team played amazing defense throughout the entire tournament not letting any team score and went home undefeated.  We are looking forward to our upcoming tournament at UIC this week!
