Donte Deayon partners with NFL to start youth flag football league

Donte Deayon has spent the majority of the last two years on the Rams’ practice squad, waiting for his chance to make an impact on the active roster. He remains on the team heading into the 2021 season, which could be his best opportunity to step up on defense with Troy Hill gone.

Despite not being a marquee player, Deayon is very popular among fans for his personality, as well as his willingness to give back to the community. He’s doing just that this year by partnering with NFL Flag to start his own flag football league for kids in California, specifically the Inland Empire.

It will be called the Goodeatz Flag Football League and will be held in Rialto, Fontana, Corona and Chino Hills, running from the fall of 2021 to next spring. It will be a 5-on-5 and 7-on-7 co-ed league, with three divisions: Lombardi (1st-5th grade), Shula (6th-8th) and Madden (9th-12th).

Deayon shared his excitement on Monday, eliciting support from his Rams teammates on Twitter.

Deayon has one of the best personalities on the Rams and became even more popular during last season of “Hard Knocks” when his infectious laugh was on full display. He’s doing what he can to give back off the field, and hopefully he’ll become a key player on it this season.
