Youth football Superbowl hits town

The Superbowl youth football event may bring 6,000 or more players and family members to Mariposa over the weekend of Nov. 9 and 10. 

Six teams from the Trans Valley Youth Football League were scheduled to play in championship games at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday. Close to 20 teams are invited for the event, which is like "an end-of-the-year company picnic" for the league, organizer Bob Kirchner said.

As of Friday, Nov. 8, most of Mariposa's close to 500 motel rooms were booked for the event.

"This football tournament is good for this town," Comfort Inn manager Gopal Das said. "We won’t be anywhere near this full (again) until May."
