Inaugural ‘Tot Bowl’ to feature Watchdawgs vs. Sentinels

By Staff | Dec 16, 2010

Ask any gridiron fan what the greatest rivalries are, and they might answer Gators vs. Seminoles or Bears vs. Packers. But local football fans can now welcome the game’s newest rivalry: the Lee County Watchdawgs and Tampa Bay Sentinels.

The Lee County Watchdawgs (comprised of players with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and other Lee County Public Safety Agencies) and Tampa Bay Sentinels (Hillsborough County Public Safety Agencies) will be battling it out in the first-ever “Tot Bowl,” with proceeds going to Toys For Tots to benefit less fortunate families.

The benefit flag football game kicks off this Saturday, Dec. 18 at 2 p.m. at Rutenberg Park Football Field, located at 6500 South Pointe Boulevard in Fort Myers. The cost of admission is an unwrapped toy or a $5 donation at the gate. Children under the age of five are admitted free.

The charity flag game promises heart pounding, edge-of-your-seat excitement. Besides the game itself, the afternoon will be filled with exciting events including food and games for the kids, pictures with FGCU cheerleaders and — rumor has it — a visit at halftime from The Grinch, who may once again try to steal Christmas.

Come on out for some great football action and bring an unwrapped toy — or $5 donation — and treat the family to an entertaining afternoon for a worthy cause!
