    This year the teams will have Monday night games under the lights with cheerleaders, high school bands, referees, run-throughs, touchdown celebration like you would not believe, concession stands, football uniforms, media coverage, an awards ceremony, and hundreds of fans! There are also five teams, the Union Grove Gladiators, Woodland Warriors, Jackson Jets, Rockdale Force, Ola Mustangs, and Stockbridge Tigers.
    Our league is now established through Special Olympics and we attend Summer Games. In Summer games 2015, the Woodland Warriors strived hard for their gold medals.

    Mission: To provide children with disabilities in our community the opportunity to experience the game of football, where the opportunity does not currently exist. This is the first program of its kind designed to help these children reach their dreams of participating in organized football and cheerleading.
    Objective: To Create and environment where the focus is on teamwork, while at the same time allowing a child to experience a thrill and camaraderie that the game of football provides. There will be no emphasis on or labeling of the players ability in the name of the team or items associated with the teams.
