Mar 27, 2024

Former BSU quarterback James Cahoon made an impression on NFL scouts during Holy Cross Pro Day on Thursday, March 21, 2024. Cahoon showed off his skills and athleticism, garnering attention from professional football teams.

A new sports team, the Boston Brigade, is set to make Quincy its home for its inaugural season. The Brigade is a professional flag football team in the AFFL (American Flag Football League) and will play its home games at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium this spring. The team is one of the first four professional flag football teams ever established.

The Boston Brigade will play its first home double-header on May 11 against the Nashville Nighthawks and Las Vegas Lucky Sevens at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets for these games are available on the team’s website. The team’s eight-game season kicks off on April 27 in Las Vegas and wraps up on June 15 in Nashville, with the championship game set for June 22 in Dallas.

Another home double-header at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium is scheduled for June 1 against the Dallas Ocelots and Las Vegas at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The team is excited to be a part of Boston’s rich sports history and believes the timing is perfect with the recent announcement of flag football being added to the 2028 Olympics.
