ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT
The Randy Pausch Memorial Flag Football Tournament was founded in 2008 to honor Randy Pausch, our friend and CMU professor who inspired millions worldwide through his highly acclaimed “Last Lecture.” Randy died of complications from pancreatic cancer on July 25, 2008.
We first got to know Randy in a different light — as a passionate and intense flag football participant in PUMP’s Pittsburgh Sports League. Last year, we created this tournament in honor of Randy’s love of the game and in keeping with goals of living life to the fullest and focusing on others.
This year’s tournament will feature both men’s and women’s 5-vs-5 tournaments, each with a recreational and competitive division. Teams are guaranteed to play at least 2 games. This will not be a double-elimination tournament like last year. Teams will not be expected to be at the field all-day long, but can expect to be there for a few hours. Teams will play 2 other teams from the same division (minimum), and the top 2 will advance to a championship game.
