Family plays backyard football on big league field

Posted: Updated:
When the Sacca family plays backyard football in Marlborough, they get to feel like they're really in Foxborough.

“A little mini Gillette. It's about 10 feet between each, instead of 10 yards,” Rob Sacca said.

It even has the flying Elvis logo at the 50-foot line, two goalposts, and NFL championship logos.

“We've done it for the past 3 years. It gets a little easier, learn to do the logo freehand,” Rob said.

Rob’s wife Jill said he got the idea and ran with it.

“He just got the idea one day, he said, ‘I think I’m going to build a football field in the backyard.’ And I said ‘what? What do you mean build?’ He just got the paint out one day, and he started spray painting and measuring,” Jill said,

But what do the kids think?

“I have a lot of fun,” Brady Sacca said.
