First Annual Flag Football Tournament

  • Ramapo High School Spring Valley, NY 10977 (map)

The first annual Babak Najafi Flag Football Game was a great success! The purpose of the game is to unite alumni and current Ramapo High School football players to celebrate the life of Babak Najafi.

After the game, the winners of the Babak Najafi Memorial Scholarship are announced. All proceeds from the game are set towards future scholarship awards. Our mission is to hold a one-day venue for the remembrance of a great life and to show Babak’s family how much we appreciate the boy they raised. Babak truly had a positive influence on the lives of those that knew him.

On the field action has consisted of four different teams competing in a single elimination tournament for the championship. We welcome all past, present, and future Gryphons along with any friends of Babak to play in the game.
For anyone who is interested in supporting our cause, but cannot attend the game, there is a Paypal account through which we will accept donations.

Congrats to Maxito Sainvil (William Patterson University, 2009) and McJeffrey Malivert (Monroe College, 2009) for being the scholarship recipients.
