If you didn't know it, Snoop Dogg is a massive football fan. But the fan went one step further than many other NFL supporters and set up his own Youth Football League.
The SYFL (Snoop Youth Football League) has been an incredible success and they now have four former players currently on NFL rosters as well as 1,700 youngsters currently signed up for the next season.
Snoop Dogg spoke recently and predicted that the Snoop League would produce 50 more future NFL players within the next decade.
"Snoop was at a 7-on-7 tourney at UCLA for the SYFL this weekend when he told us his league is overflowing with talent ... and it's no coincidence that former players like De'Anthony Thomas and Ronnie Hillman are thriving at higher levels.
'Our kids, they go hard,' Snoop says ... 'In the next 10 years, I see 50 kids from the SYFL playing in the NFL.'"
Just this year running back Thomas, formerly of the Crenshaw Bears and the Oregon Ducks, was taken by the Houston Texans in the fourth round.
Kam Jackson and Greg Ducre, cornerbacks out of Cal and Washington were picked up by the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers respectively as undrafted free agents.
Hillman was the first SYFL player to hit the league in 2012 with the Denver Broncos and the rapper obviously expects great things from his current crop of ballers.
