Former LMFA Bulldogs coach passed away
We have very sad news to report as former LMFA Coach Mark Hawkins passed away recently.
He coached for many years with the LMFA up until a few years ago. He will be remembered by everyone from the Bulldogs as a kind, friendly, and dedicated man who happily volunteered countless hours for benefit of the players.

Concussion and Safety Information
CFL concussion Poster This web site has a dedicated menu item for Concussion and Safety. There is information for parents and coaches on what LMFA is doing to make football as safe as we can make it for young players. All LMFA coaches have been asked this year to follow practice guidelines limiting full contact drills in practice to a maximum of 33% of total practice time. For example, a team practicing six hours a week, should have no more then 2 hours of live full contact drills for any player. LMFA has started working with CBI Health Group to provide follow up care for any concussions, contact them for full details.
