Back in 2005, Snoop Dogg founded Snoop’s Youth Football League (SYFL) in an effort to provide the opportunity for inner-city children to participate in youth football. Today, the league is proud to announce that 20 of their players have committed to play football at Division 1 (D1) colleges.
Since its inception, over 1,300 children have participated in the program that is based in the Los Angeles area. On February 4, National Signing Day, the league was notified that 20 of their very own players, including Snoop Dogg’s son, committed to play for some of the top schools in the nation.
“I speak on behalf of Snoop and my entire SYFL staff and all the coaches and volunteers. We just want to thank the parents for trusting in us and believing in us in building a foundation for these kids in giving them the opportunity for helping them achieve their goals on becoming a great player and teammates,” SYFL Commissioner Haamid Wadood shared
