Addison Perry and Trace Langin
Southwest Football League (SFL) players Addison Perry and Trace Langin (pictured, from left) get ready to take the field for the Orange Shamrocks team. Addison is the only girl on the team of seventh and eighth graders, and the only girl to play for any division in the history of the SFL. She is the team’s kicker, responsible for kicking extra points and field goals, and she made the extra point in the team’s first winning game. SFL’s coed team is composed of middle schoolers from River Oaks Baptist School, Presbyterian School, St. Francis Episcopal School and St. John’s School. The Orange Shamrocks are currently 1-1 in league play, led by head coach Mike Quinn and assistant coaches Bill Langin, Woodrow Scriven and Jason Berlin.
