Nominee for Hall of Fame:  Player 2001-2011 Sabre Bowden 6’ 210lbs DE, WR and O-line on occasion   Game planned almost every game, a nightmare for offensive coordinators to figure out what they would do against him.  Sabre made his money by sacking QB’s and he got rich doing it. He was a menace and truly pound for pound one of the toughest SOB’s in the minor league game. Broken fingers, ankles etc.… Sabre always found a way to play through the pain. Sabre had that natural leader’s ability and did his by example. When he walked on the filed in practice or a game you knew he was there to get his work in!  Well respected by his opponents’, they knew when they played the Bulldogs that #16 would come to play.    Arizona, Copper State and Gridiron football leagues from 2000-2010  All-Star First Team 8 times.   10 out of the 11 years he played he was named first team All-League Defensive End.   2001 Arizona Football League State Champion 2004 Copper State League Champion   2003 & 2005 Defensive Player of the year.   2010 AAA National Championship Glendale Bulldogs-arguably the best team ever assembled. 3.5 pts allowed a game on D. Less than 100 yards rushing given up all year.  Nominated by: Coach Kelly B. Kinion/Class of 2013 HOF  

 

Nominee for Hall of Fame:  Player 2002-2010 Tommy Ziegler 6’ 195lbs Quarterback/Glendale Bulldogs/East Valley Hurricanes/Tri-city Titans    One of the best QB’s to play the game. He was a first team all American in 2010 for the Glendale Bulldogs AAA National Championship team and lead them to a decisive 42-26 win over the then 2010 AAA #1 team Portland Monarchs. With his ‘gunslinger’ mentality he was as good as any QB on the run making a defense look silly at times and almost impossible to defend. His arm was clearly his best weapon and he could sling the rock like no other. Tommy was a team captain in 2010 Bulldogs and he helped lead the Bulldogs to an undefeated season and a AAA National Championship!  AA East Valley Hurricanes 2002 State Champions/AZFL  AA East Valley Hurricanes 2003 State Runner up/CSFL  AAA Glendale Bulldogs 2004 State Champion/CSFL  AAA Chandler Crusaders 2007 State Runner up/CSFL  AAA Tri-City Titans 2008 State Champions/CSFL AAA Tri-City Titans 2009 State Champions/CSFL AAA Glendale Bulldogs 2010 State Champions & 2010 AAA National Champions  All-Star First Team 9 times. Named all-league 1st or 2nd team QB almost every year.  Nominated by: Coach Kelly B. Kinion/Class of 2013 HOF

Nominee for Hall of Fame: Player/Executive 1994 -2011 Steve Trussell 6’1” 235lbs.OL DL TE OLB & Special Teams…Steve otherwise known as ‘crazy8’s’… aka Truss was a workhorse his entire career. His tough old-school’ mentality found him playing both sides of the ball. Truss was a tough hombre and one to be reckoned with! You had better bring your lunchbox when you played against Truss as you were in for a full day’s work! He was somewhat undersized playing both D/O lineman against 300lbs guys, but his attitude made up in a big way. He was what we old dogs call ‘nasty’. His love for competition served him well, as there was no one that lined up across from him that was under the impression they could take it easy and that was in practice and games. He was never going to be caught taking a play off. His mantra was hit or be hit! Steve was a hitter! When Steve narrowed in on his target a concussion was about to ensue, sometimes he would knock himself out, but trust me the other guy knew he was in a train wreck! Truss played for several teams over the course of 15 years. He was also involved in almost every aspect of the Copperstate Football league (CFL) from a management position. Truss was a founding member of the CFL and as a director his energy and organizational skills kept the league alive and well. Truss was always a great supporter of the semi-pro game and has given more to the Arizona leagues than many would ever know.     Arizona Football League (AZFL):  Positions Played included: Offensive Guard, Tight End, Defensive End,  Outside Linebacker & Special Teams   All-Star Team from 1995-2004 both offensive and defensive line!   All League Team for Defense 1996 and 1997  Panther Offensive Team Captain 1997       AZFL Teams: 1994 – 1998 AZFL Panthers 1996 – Panthers State Champions 1997 – Panthers State Runners-Up  1998 – Knights 1999 – Buccaneers 2000 – Buccaneers 2001 – Buffaloes    CFL Teams: 2002 –2003 Gorillas World Gym Team Eastern Division Champs 2004 – 2008 Bulldogs 2004 CFL State Champions 2009 – Mustangs (OL/DL Coach & Player) 2010 – Bulldogs National Championship Team - Governor’s Proclamation 2011 – League administrator and executive      Nominated by: Coach Kelly B. Kinion/Class of 2013 HOF

 

Nominee for Hall of Fame:  Player- 2003-2013 Myron McGruder/Glendale Bulldogs/South Phoenix Running Rebels/Phoenix Stallions #28/RB/Safety/6’3”235lbs (A beast indeed)  With a ‘north south’ mentality Myron made his mark running the ball and running over his opponents’. His first year in the Copper State Football league playing for the Phoenix Stallions Myron played safety as well as anyone in semi-pro football earning all-league honors and his first state championship. As you will below Myron has been a champion or a runner up in almost every year he played over 11 year career. AA Phoenix Stallions 2003 State Champions/CSFL AA Phoenix Stallions 2004 State Runner Up/CSFL AAA South Phoenix Running Rebels 2005 State Champions/CSFL  AAA South Phoenix Running Rebels 2006 State Runner up/CFL AAA South Phoenix Running Rebels 2007 State Champions/CFL AAA Tri-City Titans 2008 State Champions/CFL AAA Tri-City Titans 2009 State Champions/CFL MLFN/Runner Up AAA Glendale Bulldogs 2010 State Champions/CFL MLFN/AAA National Champions (Only Undefeated Season in league history) AAA Glendale Bulldogs 2011 State Runner up/CFL  AAA East Valley Ravens 2013 Champions/CFL Personal awards range from Defensive Player or the year to 2010 All American. Nominated by: Coach Kelly B. Kinion/Class of 2013 HOF

 

 

Nominee for Hall of Fame:  Player 2002-2012 Gerald Dewayne Johnson ‘G’/Glendale Bulldogs/East Valley Hurricanes     Gerald was a beast and one of the fastest Rush ends in the league. When he was going into College as a freshman he had ran a 4.3 forty yard dash which was unheard of back then. He was a dominate force standing 6’4” and weighing 240lbs he was a tough dude to block for sure. Gerald made things happen whenever he was on the field and took a lot of price playing all special teams! He was a quite on and off the field, but was a very tenacious competitor! First team Defensive End in the 2010 MLFN all-American squad.  AA East Valley Hurricanes 2002 State Champions/AZFL AA East Valley Hurricanes 2003 State Runner up/CSFL AAA Glendale Bulldogs 2004 State Champion/CSFL AAA Glendale Bulldogs 2010 State Champions & 2010 AAA National Champions   All-Star First Team 10 times. Named all-league 1st team DE almost every year.   Named 1st Team MLFN all-American  Nominated by: Coach Kelly B. Kinion/Class of 2013 HOF 

 

Nominee for Hall of Fame:  Player 1999-2005 Isaac Rushton/Glendale Bulldogs #31/RB/FB/5’7”185lbs   With a hardnosed attitude and unbelievable quickness Ike’ Rushton was one of the best to play the RB position. He brought a work ethic second to none game day and practice. He was a leader while with the Bulldogs and a captain.  He was one of the reasons for the ongoing success the franchise was able to achieve. In the 2004 Championship game he made a 2-point conversion to lock in the win that was one of the most tenacious runs of his career. 4-5 defenders hitting him and with his ability to stay on his feet looking like a bowling ball managed to get to pay dirt and seal the win.  He is worthy of the title of and recognition of Hall of Fame. Truly as good a person off the field as he was a competitor on the field.  AAA Glendale Bulldogs 2000 – 2009  5 Time All Star/All-League Selection 2000-2004  2000 All-Star Game MVP  2001 Championship 2001 Championship Game MVP  2001 League MVP Offensive 2004 Championship 2004 Championship Game MVP Nominated by: Coach Kelly B. Kinion/Class of 2013 HOF 

 

Nominee for Hall of Fame:  Player 2000-2013 Laylan Hester 6’ 225lbs linebacker, fullback, quarterback and tight-end   One of the, if not the most dominate multi-way player in AAA semi-pro football. Laylan “face” Hester was known for his amazing skill set at all positions. His home was MLB and he made plays like no other. In the semifinals of the State Championship of 2004 the Bulldogs found themselves behind by 4 points in the 4th qtr. with time running out. Laylan on a B-gap blitz got to the opponents RB just after the handoff and he stripped the ball, taking it away from him and ran it back for a TD, game Bulldogs. Words don’t do it justice but he was truly one of the smartest football players on the team. As the saying goes “getting skinny” was his business and business was good, always. Being a team captain in 2010 he helped lead the Bulldogs to an undefeated season and a AAA National Championship!   Arizona, Copper State and Gridiron football leagues from 1999-2013  All-Star First Team 9 times.   12 years in a row named All-League Linebacker 1st Team.   2001 Arizona Football League State Champion played QB (stepped in due to injuries) and started at MLB   2004 Copper State League Champion played QB again due to starting QB not able to be there. 20 at QB in the State Championship game.   2004 Most Valuable Player of the Copper State Football and Defensive Player of the year.   2010 Captain of the AAA National Championship Glendale Bulldogs-arguably the best team ever assembled. 3.5 pts allowed a game on D. Less than 100 yards rushing given up all year.   2013 State champion with the East Valley Ravens MLB    Nominated by: Coach Kelly B. Kinion/Class of 2013 HOF

SCROLL DOWN THIS PAGE TO VIEW THE LIST OF INDUCTEES FOR 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 AND 2009. ADDITIONALYEARS WILL BE ADDED SOON!

IF YOU KNOW OF SOMEONE THAT WAS INDUCTED AND THEIR NAME IS NOT POSTED CONTACT US ASAP.

Talk about roller coasters and adventures....it has and then it hasn't been exciting since January 2019. Be assured Minor League Football Report has not and is not going away! Many changes are coming, not so much to the website but HOW! & WHERE & WHEN events are happening.

First and foremost if your team is invited to an event be prepared to PAY a registration fee before consideration. To be considered all teams participating must submit an email stating they fully understand they are responsible for paying a registration fee prior to the event. Your details of the event will be provided. There are so many teams in the USA that want to participate and understand to play, they must pay.

This will help to prevent any type of disruptions or delays of planning and having events in a timely manner. This happened in 2018, and Minor League Football Report is bound and determined to not let it happen again.

If you were a part of any events scheduled by Minor League Football Report and failed to pay, you will not be allowed to participate in future Minor League Football Report events until you are brought current.

This is a primary reason why things are a bit delayed this year.

This is a primary reason why events are being relocated.

Hall of Fame nominations will begin immediately.

There are events scheduled for later in 2019 in Las Vegas!

Brace yourself as there is a major Minor League Football Report event happening in Hawaii in early early 2020!

So while some thought we were sleeping there are those that have been working!

Get ready! Stay tuned! Be patient. Think and believe positively! 


GDFL Uniting the Nation through Minor League Football

MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL REPORT GOING BACK TO BASICS....REPORT THE NEWS IN CASE ANY ONE MISSED IT...HERE'S TO IMPROVING THE REPORTING!

The LDFL joins the GDFL guaranteeing at least a West Coast Regional Championship at the National level before going on to compete with other USA teams. League is still to be managed and developed toward improving opportunities to advance to a national championship. With so many leagues in California and a NorCal Championship question remains.

Why not one clear California State Championship? But that is for California to work out. Primarily it may be the result of Spring season vs fall season. Let's see if other states will follow and go GDFL!

The GDFL is the hottest most attractive Minor League Football League with the stiffest of competition as it promotes a National League of Champions from all parts of the USA!

Awesome move, congratulations LDFL! Select the link below to see the GDFL write up!
