Law Students Participate in Regent’s Annual Intramural Flag Football League

Hard working, dedicated, and competitive are all characteristics that describe a Regent Law student’s performance in the classroom. It should come as no surprise, then, that such attributes draw dozens of our students to participate in Regent’s Chili Bowl Intramural Flag Football League.

The league is open to all members of the Regent family and is thus comprised of players ranging from staff members to alumni, and freshmen undergrads to 3Ls. Traditionally, each law class assembles a team. Having gone undefeated for the last two years, the 3L team, called “The Gong Show,” is expected to bring home the 2010 Championship trophy, accompanied by a year’s worth of bragging rights. At five games into their schedule their record remains untainted.

Other law teams include the “2L TDs” (5-1), “Real Coed” (2-3), and 1L squads “The Bombers” (4-2) and “The Most Interesting ‘Men’” (1-4).

Law students who choose to participate in the league give many reasons for doing so. These include the opportunity to compete with and against fellow students in a venue outside of the classroom, as well as to take a much needed break from the rigors of their studies. “I participate because it's a darn fun sport to play,” says 2L Mike Curylo. “Plus, at school it's a great way to connect with friends and make new ones… once the tension of competition wears off.” Whatever the case, both the athletes and the classmates who come to root for them take great joy and pride in the competition.
