The best youth football in America

The American Youth Football League ("AYFL") has produced more players that have landed in the NFL than any other youth conference in the US. It is no wonder that Florida leads the nation in D1 scholarships every year with the pool of talent in South Florida. Where do these athletes get their start? Many of them find their names on the rosters of the AYFL youth teams in South Florida. Many of these NFL athletes come back to train, coach, and raise their children in this area.

The AYFL is one of the most organized, competitive and disciplined leagues in Youth Football. It is comprised of 15 organizations and each one of them has 8 youth teams from 6U to 13U.

They don't just let any youth organization join their league. The bar is high if an organization wants to join the AYFL. It is a major project by many volunteers to have such a competitive league.

Our friends at Qwikcut are streaming the AYFL Championships in South Florida this weekend.
