Youth-football event brings Coach Snoop Dogg to West Seattle Stadium

With the Seahawks on the road, the biggest football event in the city happened at West Seattle Stadium this afternoon.


Hundreds came to watch as the Snoop Youth Football League and its founder, music and TV star Snoop Dogg, joined with Seattle Parks and local football organizations to present the first West Coast Clash. (Above is a play from the opening game, the Ravens vs. the Cowboys.)


As promised, Snoop was on the sidelines as the second game sent his Diamond Valley Steelers from Pomona, California, up against Seattle’s Rainier Ravens.


Snoop has been coaching youth football for more than a decade, as chronicled in an online documentary series earlier this year. He was being tracked by a Netflix crew during today’s event.


The celebrity coach wasn’t the only draw at today’s event – youth football-and-cheer leagues are popular in neighborhoods around the city, including ours.


Also spotted at WS Stadium today – Seattle Fire Chief Harold Scoggins, who is also, as the Seattle Globalist noted earlier this year, a youth football coach.


By the way, final score of the big game, per this online broadcast, Ravens 24, Steelers 7.

    It’s great to see celebrities giving back to youth around the country.  Positive influence is a good thing.  Nicely done Snoop!
