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.

The most important thing that the PDFL provides is being a resource for players. The PDFL develops players for transition into the next level and in life. "We help players with continuing there education, job training, interview skills, entrepreneurship and finance training." ~T. Hall

PDFL currently has 11 firm teams ready to kick off next season. There will be The PDFL BOWL Game at the conclusion of the regular season. Existing and new franchises: National Developmental Conference(NDC): Palm Beach Crush, Georgia Invaders, and Miami Xtreme. American Developmental Conference(ADC) Seattle-Tacoma Cobras, Boise Bandits, Portland Boltz, Utah Argos, and  New Mexico Outlawz. Additional franchises are under consideration like Spokane Silverbacks (2014) Columbia Enforcers (2014), NC Bison (2014).  The league meets in Tacoma, Washington on October 20th, with all owners required to attend a seminar on operations, advertising, sponsorships, scheduling, and media relations.

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.

The PDFL will have a full time office staffed with information director open soon. Check out the league at Office phone (253)220-7335 or email [email protected] to find out how to apply for a franchise. The PDFL has established relationships with all professional football league in the USA and Europe, and already place players with them.
