Intramural sports have long been an important part of healthy college campuses. With intramural sports at NSU, also comes intense competition. From soccer to chess, the intramural office has done an exceptional job in offering a wide variety of sports for the student body to enjoy.

“There has been a lot of expansion over the last year,” said Shane Hubert, intramural referee. “It’s exciting to be a part of honestly.”

The sport currently taking the spotlight is flag football. Bracket play began last week as multiple teams showcased their talents.

“It can get intense,” said Travis Baker, Marble City, Texas freshman. “The best part is getting to come out and compete in an overall friendly environment, even though it can get a little rough.”

With the playoffs this week, the surviving teams aim to claim their hold over intramural flag football champions.

“It can surprise you with how competitive it can get,” said Pate Thomas, Claremore freshman. “Sometimes you have to remind yourselves that this is just a friendly competition.”

Bracket play ended Thursday Oct. 8, with the highest ranked teams making it into the playoff. The champion will be decided and announced later in the week.
