Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas Ducks Minor Division of the National Youth Sports League is bringing home a national championship to Las Vegas.

The Ducks took on the West Valley Arizona Gladiators in the final game of the tournament in San Diego on Sunday.

The boys range in ages 11-12.

Coach Greg Oliver said, "It means a lot to the boys to compete against the best teams in NYS and come away with a championship. Winning the championship for Las Vegas two years in a row for the minors division shows the level of competition in the valley."

Kevin Love III, tight end for the Ducks said, "It feels amazing and good to know that I played my hardest. I'm glad that we had such a great coaching staff and great team."

The Ducks are also undefeated, having won 24 games straight in the regular season.
