SU FÚTBOL Takes on Fantasy Football

Seattle University’s men’s and women’s soccer teams know plenty about fútbol. Both teams came away with blowout victories on Sunday when the women’s team defeated Bakersfield 5-1 and the men beat Grand Canyon University 3-0. But how much do they know about American football, where players can use their hands, the clock constantly stops and the ball isn’t round? Representatives from each team met up and drafted their own fantasy teams last week for some friendly competition in NFL’s week six. Representing the women’s team, Coach Pete’s Favorites, are juniors Kelly Beck and Sarah Coluccio. Representing the men, Wham Bam Thank You Cam, is junior Patrick Clifford and redshirt senior John Mau. Below you can see the results from ESPN’s standard scoring system. Each team made some good choices, but Wham Bam Thank You Cam emerged victorious, thanks to some spectacular performances. Congratulations boys!
