snoop-dogg-youth-football-leagueNearly eight years ago, rapper Snoop Dogg was inspired by his oldest son Corde to start a youth football league.

“My oldest son was 8 years old—and now he’s 16, so 8 years ago—and he wanted to play football. I was just a father on the sidelines watching, and I saw some things I didn’t like, that I could help with. So I asked the coach, could I assist, and I became an assistant coach. From there, the next year I went on to coach my sons’ team myself. And then from there it grew, and I said, you know what, I want to start my own league.”

Now eight years later, Snoop’ssnoop South Central Los Angeles-based youth football league is now expanding to Chicago.

About Snoop’s Football League:

Snoop’s Youth Football League is “dedicated to the inner city, to save lives, to help kids, and just to give back in general. And we’ve be running for 6 years now, we have over 3500 kids in our leagues. We have our first batch of kids in college this year, and we have 4 kids who are at division one schools playing college football—I’m just so proud of my league right now,” says the rapper(Source)

    3500 kids is great! i wouldn’t be surprised if some of them showed up in the NFL down the road either!

  2. Good for Snoop and the young men. This will be great for the youth of Chicago,especially with all of the violence this is plaguing our communities. I’m proud of you and your boys, Snoop!
