150 Athletes, One Goal
This tournament was a showcase of talent and determination. We were joined by 150 players from across the country, each giving their all to prove that wheelchair football is a sport of strength, strategy, and sheer willpower. The competition was fierce, and every game pushed us to our limits.
Hillsborough County Adaptive Sports – Our Amazing Hosts
