The Oakland Dynamites Jr. Midgets defeated the Oak Grove Renegades, 31-0, last Saturday at Oakland Technical High School and claimed the Northern California Division 1 Championship Title.

“It was a good championship game. The kids were enthused,” said Marquis Ransom, assistant head coach of the Dynamites.

In 2010, the Oakland Raiders donated over $20,000, to help the Dynamites attend the National Championship in Orlando, Florida. The team was invited this year but was unable to secure sufficient funding.

The team will be travelling up to Sacramento during the Thanksgiving Holiday celebrate and participate in a 3-day tournament.

Ultimately, Ransom said Saturday’s victory reminded the players that hard work and dedication does pay off.
