The newest high school sport in the state of Alabama is girls flag football.

The Alabama High School Athletic Association made that announcement Tuesday. It says girls flag football will be a sanctioned sport starting in the fall.

It’s unclear which high schools in our area will form girls flag teams.

The AHSAA is working with the Atlanta Falcons, an organization that has been a big part of promoting girls flag football around the country.

The season will end in December with a championship game at the Super 7 in Birmingham.
