Four members of the 12U Southwest Rams of the Tucson Youth Football and Spirit Federation participated in the Red, White and Blue Youth All-Star Showcase at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday.
The players who represented Southern Arizona were Cristian Salgado, Jaylee Abraham, Xavier Galligan and Eric Barcelo.
The Southwest Rams did not play in the fall due to COVID-19 health concerns that forced TYFSF president Julius Holt to cancel the season. Holt announced last week that TYFSF is planning a return to action this fall.
Here are some of the pictures Southwest Rams coach O.J. Flores shared with cooperation from the parents of the experience of Salgado, Barcelo, Abraham and Galligan enjoyed from where the Dallas Cowboys play their home games:
