For the second year in a row I have been privileged to have an opportunity to take my referee and coaching skills to the country of Hungary in a small town called Toalmas that is about an hour south of Budapest to teach American Football. This group consisted of 30 young men, ages 12 to 19 at a Word of Life youth camp that signed up for a week of two-a-day practices to learn the fundamentals of 7-man flag football. These youth come from all walks of life, some from orphanages, but they all have a great desire to learn this American game. It would not be complete without some NFL gear to top it off and the Dallas Cowboys organization donated hats and shirts as to make sure that they remember this well beyond the camp. After a full week of training during the last day we cap it off by having a championship game for the rest of the camp, which included a TASO Football Dallas Chapter referee in full uniform to make it official.
