There are not many quarterbacks in recent memory that have dazzled on the field like Michael Vick and Doug Flutie. This pair of former fleet of foot signal callers are the highlight guests at the 19th annual Celebrity Flag Football Challenge.
The event is being hosted by Celebrity Sweat and the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park on February 2. Last year, both quarterbacks squared off in the contest, with Flutie coming out on top.
Each ex-football star will have a roster full of pro athletes, celebrities and musicians. There will also be a pregame show with local marching bands and the Military Scrimmage.
Vick will have the home field advantage as one of the most iconic athletes in Atlanta sports history. The Atlanta Falcons made him the top selection in the 2001 NFL Draft and he spent his first eight seasons with the franchise.
Vick has the single-season (1,039) and career (6,109) records for rushing yards by a quarterback. He was selected to four Pro Bowls and was often among the most popular players in the NFL.
Flutie similarly dazzled fans and he is best known for winning the Heisman Trophy while at Boston College in 1984. He first found professional success in the Canadian Football League, winning three Grey Cups and being named the CFL's Most Outstanding Player six times.
In 1998, Flutie left the league to sign with the Buffalo Bills and was named NFL Comeback Player of the Year. He is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame and the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame.
