BURLINGTON — The Burlington Tigers junior division youth football team has proved to be an unbeatable squad this season.
The Tigers finished the regular season an undefeated 8-0, advancing to the playoffs as the No. 1 seed after which the team will play in a regional, invitation-only tournament at the youth world championships.
It’s the first time Burlington has been invited to play in the tournament.
The Tigers are coached by Scot Buchanan and have been led this season by quarterback Braydin Hooper along with running backs Hamza Adalle and Jackson Granger. The trio have found plenty of success behind a solid offensive line while the defense kept the opposition stymied.
