INTRO:

Trained by Uncle Rico himself, Uncle Rico’s Army is a flag football team comprised of an elite group of students from Loyola Marymount University. Our sole purpose in life is to be able to throw a pigskin a quarter mile. After a 3rd place finish at the UCLA Regional Tournament, it is now time to send the boys to the University of West Florida for the NATIONAL TOURNAMENT in January!

FUND ALLOCATION - DUE DECEMBER 8TH!!!!
Tournament Fee - $400: Huge shoutout to our boy Raamen Bass and the LMU Intramural program for covering the 400$ tournament fee.
Flights - $5,500:  As you might imagine, it is quite expensive to fly 12 guys from LA to Florida. Most of the funds will go to this endeavor.
Accommodations - $750: Our options are LaQuinta, Red Roof, or Airbnb. Anything to sleep 12 smelly guys. Bed, couch, carpet, or hardwood floors… either way we're bringing home the W.
Transportation - $400: Uber's/Taxis to and from the University of West Florida campus. Multiple Uber XL’s add up, we have learned the hard way.... Good old Los Angeles.
Food/Miscellaneous - $500:  The big boys need to eat. Flag Football takes a toll on the body, we will consume anything we see. Bulk SZN.
TOTAL TRIP COST - $7,550: GREAT NEWS! The Student government of LMU called ASLMU has donated $1,500 to our cause! This plus the $400 tournament fee brings down the total cost from $7,550 to $5,650.. SEE BELOW!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
GRAND TOTAL - $5,650: We need $5,650 to make dreams come true. Not only the dreams of the young men on our roster, but Uncle Rico himself.

PLAYER BIOS:

Brian Hamada - I dare you to find a better rusher than young Hamadu. I DARE YOU!
Cam Henderson - RB. Weak immune system but his arm makes up for it. Trick play God.
Christian Golden - WR and CB. Height isn't an issue when you have Tyreek Hill speed. Main undercover weapon and legendary ultimate frisbee player. OG.
Connor Anthony - Young Julio Jones himself. Give him a chance… he will come down with the ball I guarantee it.
Filip Mietka - GOAT. Right Lineman. Rumor has it he has caught every single ball that has ever touched his fingers. Most wins in LMU Intramural history.
Mark Ballinger - Only TWO-time State Champion on the team. Starting linebacker. St. John Bosco Alumni Legend. Weeee REAAADDDDYYY!!!
Matt Manziel - They call him young Manziel. QB rating higher than Tom Brady. Second most wins in LMU Intramural history. To put it simply… he is THE GOAT.
Matt Novotny - Top 25 Center in the Nation. Has never blown a snap before. BOOGER BOOGER!
Rad Guhit - Left blocker. Absolute brick wall. Don't even try getting past him.
Stephan Ostrowski - ALL TOURNAMENT TEAM @ REGIONALS 2018. First play of every game the past 4 years: touchdown to Steve. Literally the best wide receiver LMU has ever seen. WARNING, DO NOT GET MOSSED BY STEVE!
