Eberflus and the Bears donated new cleats and jerseys to the programs as part of the continued partnership between the Bears and CPS. Heading into the 2022 fall sports season, CPS and the Bears are excited to expand the partnership as the girls flag football program has expanded to over 50 teams in the city. The Bears also are key instructional partners with CPS in youth and boys football.
