The cornerstone of this organization is our shared passion and belief that a first-rate, properly focused football program can make a huge difference in kid's lives. PYFL will help build self-esteem and strong character in our young people.
Ronald McDaniel, Sr. served as PYFL Conference Commissioner from 2003 - 2011. He was an avid fan, enthusiastic volunteer, and it was our privilege to know him. One of his passions was his strong commitment and leadership to the Piedmont Youth Football League. As a coach, he believed in strict discipline but was fair in his leadership. This carried in in his leadership and work with others in the founding of the Piedmont Youth Football League, that due in part to his vision the league is the success it is today. His tireless and faithful work to the Piedmont Youth Football League is almost hard to fathom. Ron's attention to detail and his penchant for integrity will never go unnoticed. The PYFL was formed with a true goal of being a quality and high integrity football league for developing young men. It grew out of an environment and day where these qualities often are ignored and sometimes abused. Ron represented what is right and good about youth sports. He has touched many lives- players, parents, teachers, and coaches alike-with his integrity and leadership, and our community is a better place because of his life.
