Tacoma, Washington-The Professional Developmental Football League will
kick off in the Spring of 2013 with American and National
Developmental Conferences. This is a pro development league according
to Theo Hall, Founder and Acting Commissioner. Hall actually started
the league five years ago with several minor league teams in
Washington and Oregon, but the quality of the teams was not what he
wanted, so he had the Tacoma Cobras(Seattle-Tacoma Cobras now) played
an independent schedule this past year in preparation for 2013. The
Professional Developmental Football League was reborn and ready for
action. The Sr. Vice President of Operations Christian Alba was very
instrumental in developing the National Developmental Conference.

Mission Statement:

To bring affordable family entertainment to fans across the Nation;
maximize revenue opportunities for individual franchises; deliver high

The most important thing that the PDFL provides is being a resource

The PDFL works closely with all colleges to let their football staff
know there is a place to play if they are not drafted, or didn’t make
a pro team and want another chance. His concept is to find owners of
teams that can afford a full time office, staff, experienced coaches
and most of all, quality players who have played college football or
on a high level league team.
