<center>BYFA Joins The Lake Erie Youth Football League</center>
After some preliminary discussions with their league president, the Board decided that we would attend their January meeting and see if they would entertain us joining. As it turned out they made us the offer and after putting out information on the league and having a parent meeting the Directors voted to accept the offer and become members. We ended our 19 year association with Blue Devils Youth Football and will begin play in LEYFL this fall. We feel that after we have some growing pains this season and possibly in 2016 it will be the best thing for our kids.
There are now 16 teams in the league, which was formed in 2009, and of those teams 9 of them are members of the Patriot Athletic Conference with Buckeye at the high school level. That should give us a chance to develop some rivalries at this level that the kids will carry to junior high and high school.
