USFooty Story

A story featuring the Milwaukee Bombers Australian Football Team has won first prize in the Milwaukee Press Club 2001 Excellence in Journalism Contest. The piece which aired on the Milwaukee FOX affiliate, WITI, took top honors in the Sports Within a Newscast category.

FOX6 sports reporter Mark Concannon and sports photographer Michael Leach spent a rainy Thursday night with the Bombers last year. The story praised by the judges as "fun and watchable" featured USfooty Founding President Paul O'Keeffe and Milwaukee Bomber and current Revolution player Jason Becker.

The story focused on USfooty's humble beginnings, bright future and overall appeal for American Footy players. Concannon says the Bombers' attitude "blew him away." "It was very impressive and fun to watch," he added.

The Bombers play in the Lake Michigan Australian Football League and currently sit atop the ladder with a 2-0 record.
