The Ojai Eagles have one team in the Super Bowl this year and that is the J-2 Gold Eagles who went undefeated this year (9-0) and, as a member of the J-1 Division last year, were also undefeated and won the Super Bowl.
This year’s Super Bowl will be held in Santa Ynez at Santa Ynez High School on Saturday and the game time is 2:30 p.m.
The Ojai Eagles Youth Football organization wants to send a big thank-you to all the volunteers, parents, sponsors and coaches who contributed their time and resources to the league. The growth and success of the program is a direct result of their hard work, trust and dedication Thank you to the board of director’s and especially to Stephanie, who worked tirelessly to make the snack bar happen for every home game. We look forward to another great Eagles football season in 2009.
