Are You Ready For Some Football?


T


he Denver Bar Association Lawyers’ Touch Football League starts its 43rd season Sunday, Sept. 11. For the last several years, the games have been played at Eisenhower Park in southeast Denver. Each team consists of seven players (lawyers and law students). The league suggests that each team roster have at least 13 players. If you are interested in fielding a team or wish to place your name on the list of free agents that later will be assigned to teams that need additional players, please contact John Stevens at jhs@giffordstevens.com. Generally, the league limits the number of teams to the first 10 that apply; preference is given to past participants. The entry fee for each team is yet to be determined (last year’s fee was $400).

Last year’s championship was won by Collateral Attack, besting The Lambs 12-6. The championship was the fourth-straight for the Attack and the sixth in the last eight years. The league was the brainchild of John Madden III in 1968. The Madden trophy is awarded to the league champion by Madden at the commencement of each new season. D
