"Mentoring kids through SYFL means more to me than anything else I do," Snoop Dogg said in a statement. "It's my way of continuing to connect with the communities that move me. I get to know kids and parents with great spirits from all over, and it becomes something far beyond football. It is important to not only be a football coach to these kids, but to be a life coach as well. It's our way of sharing a life together. This series will finally give the world a chance to witness the stories, talent, and commitment SYFL represents in the same way I do.”
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.
