Flag football players traveled to the New Orleans Saints practice facility to participate in the inaugural Flag Football Tournament presented by McDonald's on April 9.
The adult 5-on-5 flag football tournament consisted of 27 teams across three divisions: female division, male division and co-ed division.
The day began with a visit from former New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister.
"Well for me to be able to come out and just interact with the fans was great," McAllister said about the tournament. "It's a fun atmosphere for a 5-on-5 tournament put on by the Saints as well as McDonald's. You never get to see the co-ed aspect, it's normally in college but to see it in the facility, it's pretty cool."
Tournament play began with pool play in the three divisions and then proceeded to single elimination and championship play.
The women's division champions were Crescent City Crush.
The co-ed division champions were Prestige Worldwide.
"It's great to be part of the first ever flag football tournament and we're excited for next year now," Kasey Breaux said, who was on the women's and co-ed's division championship team. "We're going to be defending our title and I'm stoked, it was so much fun."
New Orleans Saints cornerback Delvin Breaux watched his wife Kasey play all day.
"She did great today," Breaux said. "I love coming out here just supporting her and watching every play, every snap she played. It's exciting so I enjoy it.
The men's division champions were Hit Squad.
"We had a great time, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves," Hit Squad member Nick Nauman said. "We're coming back next year and Hit Squad won! it meant the world to us."
