Last Night, under the lights of Boone Pickens Stadium, 5 teams gathered, all prepared for an epic football showdown. But this isn’t your typical Friday night high school game; this is football…Red Bull style.
Red Bull Game Breakers is an innovative 7-on-7 style tournament which awards points for game breaking moments as well as touchdowns. It gives players the opportunity to prove who really is a shot caller, play maker and game breaker.
After a grueling competition, it came down to Yukon High School versus Midwest City High School.
It was Midwest City who proved victorious, completing the tournament undefeated. Both teams will advance to the Red Bull Game Breakers Finals at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on June 25, 2010.
"Today was fun. Playing on this field was an experience I will never forget. I'm excited to get to the Cotton Bowl and size up the teams from Louisiana and Texas....Red Bull Game Breakers is a special thing to be apart of," said Greg Austin, starting quarterback, Midwest City.
"I think our kids played well. They came back from 14 down in the second half and made a real run for it against Midwest City in the finals,” said Coach Todd Wilson of Yukon High School. “What a great game. Our team has so much heart and we are going to come back even stronger at the Cotton Bowl."
