Congratulations you have just finished your degree and football career here at GCC and now you don’t know what you want to do. You realize that you still love the game of football and want to continue playing, so what’s next you ask yourself. Well gentlemen your answers are here and it is the Arizona Football League, a league for men to continue playing after their time with school is up.
The Arizona Football League (AzFL) is a competitive tackle football league that is available for those who have finished school, whether it is high school or college and want to still play the game of football. The AzFL has been around since 1995 and has had NFL players such as Deuce Lutui of the Arizona Cardinals and Arena Football League Players Chad DeGrenier, Gerard Williams and Siaha Burley play in their league during the professional off-seasons.
The AzFL has an application process to join the league and eventually a team. The AzFL excepts players all year long but their seasons are from the months of January to May, which includes one pre-season game, 10 regular season games, and the playoffs if your team is in the top 8 for best records. The AzFL records every football game played and posts it on its website http://www.aspnradio.com to be viewed.
The AzFL is located all over Arizona so you don’t have to be stuck to one area just to play in the league. For instance the AzFL has teams in Flagstaff, Yavapai county (Prescott area), Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa/Chandler, Tucson (two teams), Cave Creek, Surprise/El Mirage, and Avondale/Goodyear areas. You are also able to pick and choose what team you want to play for all the way up until December, because once the season starts you cannot switch teams.
For more information on the league and how to get involved with the teams log on to the website http://www.azfl.com and fill out a application.
