It’s no secret that Americans are obsessed with watching, talking, and playing football. For those who aren’t sure about strapping on the helmet and smashing into linebackers, flag football is the answer.
Flag football, as well as all other ACU intramural sports, will now be run through imleagues.com, said ACU Intramural Director Kenli Edwards.
“IMleagues changes the entire atmosphere of intramurals,” Edwards said. “It allows easy access to scores and schedules and also allows you to see what is coming up soon and to check announcements. If the students that participate in intramurals will check imleagues consistently, they will never be out of the loop. It is a great resource available now thanks to technology.”
After making a profile, students have the ability to join teams and follow every aspect of the game, including viewing stats keeping up with the standings and even talking some smack on the message boards.
“It’s like an intramural facebook,” Edwards said.
Not only does IMleagues make it easier for students to track how they’ve fared against the competition, but it also makes the process of managing intramural sports much easier as a whole.
“IMLeagues is a lifesaver,” said GATA Intramural Director Shayla Herndon. “It is accessible on any learning device and is so much easier to manage. It also gets the players more involved than simply coming to the games and then going home.”
A total of 65 teams on campus will battle it out on the gridiron this year in hopes of making it to the championship. The teams are split into championship leagues for the more competitive athlete and recreational leagues for those just looking to have fun.
While ACU offers a variety of intramural sports, flag football always seems to be one of the more popular choices. Herndon said it is a personal favorite of hers.
“It’s ACU’s largest sport and is definitely loved by all, ” Herndon said. “It’s a good way to get to know people better, have some healthy competition and overall it brings people together in ways that other sports can’t.”
