It's not football season, you say? Well, think again – because one local football team is actively tearing up the field and currently leading their league.

The Creswell Oakland Raiders flag football team, comprised mostly of fourth graders who attend Creslane Elementary School and coached by Shawn Hittenberger, competes in an NFL Flag Football league with other teams in the Eugene-Springfield area.

The regular league season consists of seven games – all played at the Bob Keefer Center for Sports and Recreation in Springfield. A playoff tournament is held at the end of the season.
