Senior League

After losing two of their first three games, the Giants have come storming back with victories against two of the leagues top teams, the Jets and Vikings. In doing so, they extended their winning streak to four games and are currently in first place with a 5-2 record.

Their explosive offense is led by quarterback Adam Mustafa, Frankie LoRiggio, Donald Gomer Max Bomser and Ray Kip. Defensive stars are Dewey Frechette, Steven Fielder, Mike Leon, Joe Wiley and George Koutsouras.

Coaches Frank LoRiggio and Abed Mustafa, whose squad won the championship last year, are adjusting, along with the eight other teams that make-up the Senior League (ages 12-14) to a major rule change this season which allows for one player to rush the quarterback on the snap from seven yards beyond the line of scrimmage.
