HYFCA has 3 teams headed to the AYF Greater Illinois Conference Championship this weekend.  Come out and show your love for the Purple and White!

Playoffs Continues This Weekend!

In our first season with the new Greater Illinois Conference of the American Youth Football league, the Hampshire Jr. Whip-Purs have definitely made a name for themselves.

Last week we sent 70% of our teams to the playoffs with over 40% of those teams earning their way to the Conference Championship.  

  • Our little guys on the 6U team had a tough time getting the offence going, but won the respect of their opponents with smashmouth defense.  This is definitely a team to watch as they continue to grow in the program.
  • Our 8U team turned around an 0-4 start, winning the final 4 games to claim the 4th seed in the playoffs.  During the first round they faced a team that blew them out in the season opener.  This time they took the team into overtime before eventually losing 7-0.  We are so proud of these boys, and can't wait to see them back as 9U next season.
  • The Whip-Purs sent 3 teams at the 9U level to the playoffs.  While D3 teams 9U White (#1 seed in the D3 division) and 9U Black were both upset in the first round, D2 9U Purple easily dispatched their opponents earning a rematch against their season opener opponents, Robbins, for the Conference Championship.  
  • The 10U Purple team dominated the second half controlling the clock and shutting down their opponent's offense.  They will advance to a rematch against Rockford in a Homecoming rematch.
  • 12U Purple dropped a heart breaker in the last series, preventing them from the opportunity of becoming back-to-back Regional Champions.  They'll be back next year hungrier than ever to take home some hardware during their final season with the program.    
  • Division 3, 13U Black played for the Conference Championship and took their opponents into overtime before ultimately dropping the game by a single point.  We wish these boys all the best and will continue to follow them as they move on to Hampshire High School next season.  
  • Despite entering the postseason as a higher seed, 13U Purple was forced to take on Homewood Floosmoor  on their own field.  Our oldest players didn't let that stop them and easily routed the Jr Vikings for the opportunity to take on the Patriots Youth Football Team on for the D2 Conference Championship.
