0KNFL Draft Eligible Players yearly, with less than 1% of all athletes making it!



The differentiation which sets the SDFL apart from other football leagues is our 70/30 rule. 70% of the SDFL’s focus is on education, personal development, business acumen, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, blockchain infusion, influencing, which leads to monetization of individual brands, and most importantly, community/economic development! The other 30% of our focus is on the physical aspects of gameplay which brings people from all ethnic backgrounds together for a common cause! Finally, our focus is to give our athletes a league of their own, a league that respects our athletes and allows them to take care of their families financially for life. An existing education system, entrepreneurship, and the sport of football that teaches our athletes life skills that will serve them well after the final whistle blows on their football careers!

Our Reasons

Our Cause

Each year the States Developmental Football League and its divisions hold weekends geared toward cancer awareness and fundraising for much-needed resources. Our mission is to develop impactful cancer education initiatives for all those who suffer, including addressing the disparities in cancer care faced by those in the African American and Latino communities.

States Developmental

Football League

The States Developmental Football League’s fundamental principles are professional development on and off the field. Our athletes and staff will have the opportunity to be prepared so that once the regulation game is over, they will be able to go into overtime confident in their business skill-sets. The balance between business principles and professional sports will set the S.D.F.L. apart from other leagues that have come and gone in the past.

The Women’s Division

of The SDFL

An existing system of education, entrepreneurship, blockchain, and the sport of football has never been the focus of a women’s league until now! Welcome to the WSDFL, one of the States Developmental Football League extensions with an emphasis on our female counterparts!

All About

The Youth

YSDFL is our youth division of the States Developmental Football League! Education, exposure, and entrepreneurship are the three pillars of this division. The emphasis is often placed on the game itself rather than off-the-field development. According to the YSDFL, those days are over!



The SDFL has a BUILT-IN VOLUME SYSTEM of athletes each year that are working towards the NFL. Unfortunately, less than 1% get a shot at the NFL. With our help, we increase those chances by alternative avenues of exposure. One of our primary avenues is the casting leg of the SDFL. Since league establishment, we have had athletes in 8 movies, 3 TV shows, and 15 TV commercials. Allowing the athletes to generate income by portraying actual football players in our casting leg makes it easier to sell them as football players to NFL scouts.
