An “uncle” to many, Snoop’s commitment and passion for community service is commendable. In 2005, he established the Snoop Youth Football League to provide children between the ages of five and 13 the opportunity to participate in youth football and cheer.

Throughout the years, the SYFL program has coached thousands of kids, and many of the SYFL players have gone on to play football in college and in the NFL.

Since its inception, Snoop has personally coached a team of players during each SYFL football season. The league also became the subject of the critically-acclaimed Netflix series Coach Snoop.
