Nature's Own, a national bread distributor, is back. Previously they made way for gotbeer.com to take the League MVP sponsorship. Now Nature's Own is going to be giving the Fall 2017 Upstate Flag League Coach of the Year a $400 cash prize!
To sweeten the dough, coaches signing up early have the opportunity to register their teams for a discounted price of $50. Just sign up on the website then show up to our registration event between 4PM and 8PM on May 31st at Trick Shot Billards in Clifton Park. This offer is only good for coaches registering at the May 31st event.
The Coach of the Year award will be decided by a combination of votes from players, coaches, UFL Staff and the fans (social media). Players will each get one vote for a coach on a team other than their own. Coaches will each get one vote for someone other than themselves. Fan voting will be wide open and some of the UFL staff will get one vote each. Here's how the voting will work:
We are still working on additional player prizes, but as of right now - here’s the current summary of prizes:
|gotbeer.com League MVP||$500|
