Paladin team wins Youth Football Alliance championship



ALPHARETTA, Ga. — The Forsyth Paladin fifth grade travel football team recently won the Youth Football Alliance championship. The Forsyth Paladins defeated the Tucker Lions, 16-6, in a highly competitive game to complete a season that began back in early July.

The team earned a spot in the post season 10U Georgia rankings at No. 7.

After winning the North Metro Football League Championship in 2015, the Paladins fell short in the 2016 YFA Championship to College Park but used the loss to focus on a common goal for 2017 season. The team’s accomplishments included most points scored in the league and fewest points allowed in the division.

“Our number one priority year over year is to build a solid team culture first and then to deliver the best possible football experience by focusing on fun, proper level of league competition, competitive student-athletes and most importantly pacing the season which allows the team to peak late,” said Head Coach Frank Tumminia.

The Forsyth Paladins are comprised of teams from third to sixth grade and the program offers an opportunity for student athletes to compete against select football teams across the greater Atlanta-area. For more information, visit
