A LITTLE BEHIND, BUT STILL WANT TEXAS TO KNOW IT IF YOU DIDN'T ALREADY
STRAIGHT FROM THE MPFL WEBSITE! CONGRATS JIM MUNDY AND THANKS JC KIMEY!
Jim Mundy - New Commissioner of MPFL
Statement from incoming MPFL Commissioner:
I am excited about the opportunity
to take the job as commissioner for the MPFL. The foundation that has been laid
by JC Kimey and the front office, in conjunction with the MPFL team owners
provides me with a great starting point. It will be hard to match the success
that the MPFL has had to this point, my goal is to simply build on it. I really
believe with the experience that exists already, and with an injection of
"new blood" we can reach new heights never seen before. I look
forward to working with our member team owners.
The MPFL wishes all players the best of health, and the best of luck to all its member teams.
Remember, we all do this because we love the game and the brotherhood. Maintain respect for the game at all times.
JC Kimey steps down as Commissioner

THOUGHT WE WENT AWAY.....WE ARE STILL HERE!
TEXAS MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL, HERE COMES ANOTHER YEAR. 2018 IS EXPECTED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST YEARS IN MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL EVER. TEXAS HAS RAPIDLY GROWN IN AREAS THAT ARE NECESSARY TO SPICE THE GAME UP AND TAKE IT TO ANOTHER LEVEL.
THE LEAGUE HAVING THE MOST IMPACT THIS YEAR IS THE CRAFL. SO LSMLFNEWS WILL FOR THE SAKE OF THE FANS AND OF COURSE FOR THE LEAGUES AND THE TEAMS,
PLACE THE TEXAS LEAGUES IN AN ORDER OF IMPACT. FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE LSMLFNEWS HAS POSTED THE LEAGUE NAMES WITH LINKS TO THEIR RESPECTIVE WEBSITES (SOME OUTDATED) AND THEIR FACEBOOK PAGES.
THE WIFL IS CONSIDERED A PROFESSIONAL LEVEL TEAM OFFERING PAYING CONTRACTS AND NOT MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL. SHOULD THEY STILL BE CONSIDERED MINOR LEAGUE? AREN'T YOU SUPPOSED TO GET PAID FOR PLAYING IN THE MINOR LEAGUES??ALSO THEY CONSIDER THEMSELVES TO BE IN AN INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE. CURRENTLY THEY ARE THE ONLY INTERNATIONAL TEAM BASED IN TEXAS.
THIS IS NOT TO SAY THE OTHER LEAGUES WILL HAVE NO IMPACT, THEY ARE LISTED THIS WAY BECAUSE OF HOW THEY ARE AFFECTING MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL IN TEXAS.
EACH LEAGUE HAS ITS PROS AND CONS NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL. SOME REQUIRE TRAVEL, SOME NOT AS MUCH.
THE CRAFL HAS A $10,000.00 AWARD TO THE LEAGUE CHAMPION. AND ALREADY HAS POSTED A $12,000 AWARD FOR 2019. SO THEY ARE FOCUSED. IF YOU DIDN’T GET ON BOARD THIS YEAR YOU CAN TRY NEXT YEAR.
THE MPFL AS ALWAYS A FRONT RUNNER IN INNOVATIVENESS AND SHEDDING MORE AND MORE LIGHT ON THEIR PLAYERS WITH THEIR PUBLISHING OF THEIR MAGAZINE AND STORYLINES IN THE LEAGUE. NO OTHER LEAGUE DOES THAT YET!
THE TUFA IS STILL FLEXING THEIR MIGHT WITH NUMBER OF TEAMS AND BEGINNING TO GET MORE INVOLVED IN NATIONAL DISCUSSIONS. NOT TO SAY THEY HAVEN’T DONE SO IN THE PAST, JUST SAYING GETTING A LITTLE MORE INVOLVED.
THE TUFL ONE OF THE OLDEST LEAGUES IN TEXAS STILL CONTINUING TO DO WHAT THEY DO AND MANAGE TO GET THE TEAMS NOT WANTING A PART OF OTHER LEAGUES AND CONTENT TO PLAY WHERE THEY HAVE PLAYED. IF YOU CAN’T WIN IN THE TUFL YOU WILL MOST LIKELY NOT WIN ELSEWHERE. THEIR 2017 LEAGUE CHAMPION WENT TO ANOTHER LEAGUE.
THE DTFA IS SMALL THIS YEAR. IT GROWS ONE YEAR AND SMALLER THE NEXT YEAR. SO DON’T COUNT THEM OUT AS THEY COUNTER WITH ASSISTANCE FOR PLAYERS TRYING TO GET IN TO SCHOOL. THE DTFA HAS PLACED MANY IF NOT MORE PLAYERS IN SCHOOL THAN ANY OTHER LEAGUE. THEY BOAST OF HELPING TO BUILD CHAMPIONS SUCH AS THE TEXAS COLTS, GALVESTON COUNTY MONARCHS, TEXAS SPARTANS, AND THE HOUSTON DUCKS.
THE EFL SOMEHOW MANAGES TO FORM A LEAGUE YEAR AFTER YEAR SO CREDIT TO THEM FOR STAYING AFLOAT. WE AWAIT AS USUAL TO SEE IF HOW THE LEAGUE WILL MATERIALIZE.
THE RGFL MAY NOT MAKE THIS YEAR AS A RESULT OF TEAMS MOVING TO OTHER LEAGUES BOTH IN TEXAS AND OUT OF TEXAS. THEIR LEAGUE CHAMPION WENT TO ANOTHER LEAGUE.
MANY DIFFERENT GAMES GOING ON IN PRESEASON WE HAVE YET TO BEGIN POSTING SCORES....ONCE THE REGULAR SEASON STARTS WE WILL BEGIN POSTING SCORES.
AS USUAL WE WILL DO THE LSMLFNEWS TOP 15 POLL.
WE WILL START THE RUMOR HERE. SEMI PRO ELITE/LSMLFNEWS TEXAS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP 2018 ????? WE DON'T MIND WORKING TOGETHER WITH ANYONE, SO IT COULD HAPPEN WE WILL LET MR. BERNARD HUTCHINS OF SEMI PRO ELITE MAKE THAT CALL!

WIFL - WHAT DO THOSE INITIALS OR ABBREVIATIONS STAND FOR IS A QUESTION ASKED AND MANY ARE FINDING OUT QUICKLY. THE LETTERS STAND FOR WORLD INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. SO WHERE IS IT OR WHAT IS IT?
AS BEST AS LSMLFNEWS CAN TELL BASED ON AN UNAUTHORIZED OR APPROVED BUT PERSONAL CONVERSATION WITH THE HEAD COACH OF THE WIFL USA EAGLES IT'S A TEAM SIGNING PLAYERS TO CONTRACTS TO PARTICIPATE IN INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL GAMES. THOSE GAMES RANGE FROM SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRIES TO CENTRAL AMERICAN COUNTRIES AND MEXICO, AND OF COURSE OTHER COUNTRIES POSSIBLY IN THE FUTURE.
THE WIFL USA EAGLES ARE SEEKING OUT TOP NOTCH FOOTBALL PLAYERS FROM ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE TO COME AND BE A PART OF AN ORGANIZATION SEEKING TO IMPROVE THE PLAYING ATMOSPHERE AND PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PLAYERS TO GO AND PLACE THEIR FOOTBALL SKILLS ON DISPLAY.
GO TO THEIR WEBSITE AND CHECK THEM OUT! FIRST IS THE FACEBOOK LINK THEN THEIR WEBSITE.
