AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Earlier today , a group of young men gathered in Austintown like they do every Thanksgiving Morning.
They’re not kicking off holiday shopping. They’re renewing lifelong friendships.
Every year, a group of 2 dozen friends gather on Thanksgiving Morning at Austintown Township Park.
They spend a quick moment counting their blessings, and then the games begin.
This flag football game has been going on for more than 10 years.
Today it’s 50 degrees and sunny.
But they take the field, rain or shine, fair weather or foul.
And at the end of the day, a promise – same time, same place. Next year.
