LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Today, the Raiders and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Activities League (PAL) announced the start of a 7-on-7 NFL FLAG Passing League for high school junior varsity athletes. 

The league kicked off with a comprehensive combine that will test the speed and agility of the student-athletes. Prior to the start of the competition, the Raiders presented Las Vegas Metro PAL with a $25,000 donation to support the league and the NFL’s PLAY 60 initiative of being physically active through non-contact, continuous action, while learning the fundamentals of football, lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship.
