Welcome to My League!

Matt Leinart

“I hope you have a great time in my league, and enjoy the sport that first introduced me to competitive football. I was always too big to play tackle football, so up until high school I could only play flag football. It was there that I developed the fundamentals that helped me to capture a high school C.I.F championship, two NCAA championships, and a Heisman trophy. Have fun out there!”

– Matt Leinart
