Miracle Sports v. FSU Showdown

By  | 

UPDATE 11:11 p.m.

A couple of Florida State football players played in a game some may consider tougher than January's championship game against Auburn.

Tonight marked the annual Miracle Sports Seminole Showdown. Several Noles took on kids with disabilities in a game of flag football.

Even cheerleaders painted faces and some of the marching band showed up. Organizers say what makes an event like this so special are the looks on the kids' faces when they're playing on the field.

"The kids love it and it's really exciting for them," said David Jones, president of Florida Disabled Outdoors Association.

"You might not think it's just a little football game but they think they think the world to it so I'm glad to be out here, it's fun," said FSU Kicker Roberto Aguayo.

The Lake Jackson Kiwanis Club helped make the atmosphere more like one outside of Doak Campbell. They cooked hot dogs and handed out drinks.

Some young local athletes are getting a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Children with the Miracle Sports program will team up to play with Florida State student athletes.

Plenty of kids are already out playing at Messer Park on this gorgeous day, which actually feels like a Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium.

The Miracle Sports program is putting on the Miracle Sports Showdown this evening where disabled kids will get a chance to play some flag football with actual FSU Seminoles.

The Kiwanis Club is out there grilling hot dogs and other tailgate food.

The game will be going on from 6-8 pm out at Messer Park.

The event is also sponsored by the Florida Disabled Outdoors Association.
