It's A Great Day, Let's Play Two"

"It’s a great day, Let’s Play Two!"
by Steven M. Brainerd

That was Ernie Banks catch phrase and does apply here.

Semipro football has seen a number of interesting occurrences when it comes to games played. Teams have often played Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday (particularly the Seattle Cavaliers) although no one has ever done a weekend triple play, but it might be that it is yet to be discovered. Teams have played as many as seven games in a month (in October 1963, the South Boston Chippewas did that).

2016 Team Banquet

Our 2016 Team Awards Banquet was held on Sunday, January 29, 2017 at The Iron Furnace located on Hancock Street here in Quincy.  We were the first group to hold a group event in their new space!

The day before at the Eastern Football League (EFL) League meeting, Quincy Militia Football was presented with the 2016 EFL Franchise of the Year Award!


The following awards were presented to players from Quincy Militia Football.

"Remember Your Greatness"

“REMEMBER YOUR GREATNESS"
by Suzy Kasem

Before you were born,
and were still too tiny for
the human eye to see,
you won the race for life
From among 250 million competitors.
and yet,
how fast you have forgotten
your strength,
when your very existence
is proof of your greatness.
You were born a winner,
a warrior,
one who defied the odds
by surviving the most gruesome
battle of them all.
And now that you are a giant,
why do you even doubt victory
against smaller numbers,
and wider margins?
the only walls that exist,

Semipro Football Players

2016 Semipro Football Players
There are over one-thousand football teams in the United States that refer to themselves assemi-pro,minor league,professional development,senior amateur, oradult amateurin over sixty different leagues. These football players usually have played high-school or college ball, and they want to continue competing after their eligibility has been exhausted. The vast majority of these playersdo not get paidto play ... they truly competefor the love of the game. This involves the players purchasing their own equipment and usually paying for their own transportation/lodging to/from games.
