Steve Higgens is the captain of his flag football team, and for the first time, his team are going to Nationals. " The National game in Princeton, N.J, and since the Broncos can't win in the Superbowl, team Colorado Crush will win in New Jersey, " Higgens said.

Higgens said competing is about more than just winning for him, "I really like it, it makes me a good person and it helps me stay out of trouble."
