Rochester Youth Football League: Welcome

Monday, April 23

Welcome to the 2013 Football Season for Rochester Youth Football League.
Where the kids come first, the sport comes second and winning is the added benefit.
          We are a well established organization with over 40 years of history supporting the youth of the Rochester area. We are the feeder program for the Little Red Raider Football and Cheering organization.
          We take great pride in our program and it's facilities. Take a look around the website. I hope that you will find it helpful. I am looking forward to the upcoming season as your RYFL Commissioner. I have had some great experience as coach of the Green - Fighting Irish Team for 15 years. I have been a member of the RYFL Board as well. I take great pride in the program.

Big News!

It is our pleasure to welcome a new team to our league. The Wolfeboro Lancers asked to join our league and has been accepted. This will bring the number of teams in the league to nine. The Lancers will operate much the same way Wakefield and Farminton do. We are all very happy to to be working with the Lancer head coach Tom McCullough.

Cogratulations to the Champions...

The Purple Prowlers. 

It was a hard-fought game between the first place Maroon Marauders and the second place Purple Prowlers. Both teams showed pride and determination. The Purple Prowlers were able to edge out the Maroon Marauders by a two point conversion to win 8-6.

 The B teams went back and forth over the field to a 0-0 tie. It was a great game to watch. Congratulations to both the B teams.
