“The kids I get to mentor through SYFL means more to me than anything else I do,” Snoop said during the AOL Future Front event at Pier 36 in New York City. “We got kids in the league from all over and the spirit I see from them and their love of the game and life — it moves me. The SYFL is more than just football; it’s about the kids, their families and the life coaching the SYFL provides to the entire community. I want the world to see their stories, talent and commitment — and now they will through our new series.”
The SYFL recruits players from low-income communities in Los Angeles between the ages of five and 13. Many of the youth who have played in Snoop’s league have went on to play football professionally.
