Letter from the President...

As the new USAFL President, I’ve spent the past few months grasping the role. For those who do not know me, I’ve been involved with the league as a player since 2006 (Boston, Milwaukee and now Denver), a member of the USA Revolution since 2007, and executive board member since 2010. I’m honored that the clubs entrusted me with the position at the 2011 AGM, and I will work hard to ensure the league continues to grow.

In 2012, the USAFL enters its 16th year (amazing!), and comes off a historic fall with the Revolution finishing 4th and Freedom placing 3rd in the International Cup. The AFL took notice of these performances and believes there is a great future of football in the USA.
