Since 2005, the Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL) has produced multiple kids who have gone on to play college football and beyond. Every year Snoop Dogg recognizes the best high school senior who played in the league to participate in the Adidas All-American game. Loyola High School stand-out Rashad “Champ” Westbrooks is the latest talent to come out of the SYFL and receive an invitation to the game.

Westbrooks is a three-year varsity starter for the Cubs and will continue his athletic career at Arizona State University. This year, Westbrooks was awarded the Angelus League Most Valuable Lineman and showed his versatility playing guard and defensive tackle. As a junior, Westbrooks earned first-team Angelus League honors.  He has never missed a game since his sophomore year.

Becoming an Adidas All-American is a dream for many kids. It is a significant achievement designated for top athletes, recognizing them for their skills and dedication to football. Westbrooks is honored to be invited to the game and excited to showcase his talents on the big stage.

“It feels great to receive this invitation because it’s something I’ve been working towards my whole high school career,” Westbrooks said. “My hard work and dedication has paid off and I’m looking forward to seeing how I hold up against the best of the best from around the country”.

In the Snoop League, Westbrooks played for the Baldwin Hills Bruins. The Bruins organization and the league are known for instilling valuable life skills and character-building traits within their players on and off the field. Rashad acknowledged how the Snoop League has played a role in his development.

“SYFL played a huge part in my game,” Westbrooks said. “I was only a part of it for about 3 years, but in that time I became a much better player. I received great coaching and learned leadership skills from the staff that helped me transition once I got to high school”.
