Report

The idea for American 7s came to Ryan DePaul late in 2002. His High School Football playing career was over and there was no possibility of playing College Football. He was playing pick-up, no pads or helmet football in parks and thought it needed codifying, so in 2005 he began to develop 7v7 No Pads, No Helmet, Tackle American Football.

In 2014 he was approached by lifelong friend and entrepreneur, Sener Korkusuz about launching the League to Major League level. Soon afterwards the American 7s Football League was born, starting its first season in March 2015.

The 2015 season was covered in Regional Press in Maryland and well as National and International Websites, with the 2015 Champion being Paterson New Jersey U. The 2016 Champions was Trenton New Jersey Brothers in Christ (New Jersey BIC), and in 2017 Union City (New Jersey) Chiefs won the Chapionship, which was a milestone for the league as it was televised on ELEVEN Sports Network in 70 Million households in the USA and 8 countries Worldwide.

In 2018 the League was won by Baltimore Gators, 28-14 over Baltimore Vikings, and in 2019, PA Immortalz won the Championship, defeating NJ Paterson U 26-19. For the 2020 Season the League added a West Coast Division with teams in Long Beach, Riverside and San diego, but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Investors included former NFL Player and household name, Deion “Prime Time” Sanders. [Ref: 4-5]
