Posted on January 31, 2008 by Jamie Slaughter
Music and TV superstar Snoop Dogg announced today that the 6th annual Snoop Bowl will be taking place on February 2, 2008. The annual game, hosted by Snoop Dogg himself, will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Matt Leinart Foundation (http://www.mattleinartfoundation.org). The game will be held at Hamilton High School in Chandler, AZ.
Snoop Bowl VI will feature the Snoop Dogg All-Stars, a youth football team from California coached by Snoop Dogg, against local Arizona youth football players. The game will be held the day before Super Bowl XXII, and is expected to draw many fans. Matt Leinart, Heisman Trophy Winner and Arizona Cardinals Quarterback, will be in attendance, representing his charitable foundation. The Hamilton High School band will be performing at halftime.
"For five years now we have had a great time organizing and preparing for the Snoop Bowl. It gives the kids a reason to work and play hard throughout the season, knowing that it all culminates on this day," says Snoop Dogg. "It is about so much more than the game, the Snoop Youth Football League gives kids hope and meaning outside of just the sport."
The Snoop Dogg All-Stars are made up of kids who participate in the Snoop Youth Football League, a football league funded by Snoop Dogg and comprised of over 3,000 kids in the Greater Los Angeles area. Snoop Dogg founded the league in 2005 in order to provide at-risk youth an affordable way to play football. Kids who participate must maintain strict academic requirements to remain eligible. Coach Snoop even provides insurance to each participant free of cost.
