Our Mission

 

The mission of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame is to promote and develop in young men the power of amateur football in developing the qualities of leadership, sportsmanship, competitive zeal and the drive for academic excellence.

 

Every year the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame pays tribute to a select few with awards of excellence for exhibiting superior qualities of scholarship, citizenship and leadership. Additionally, the Foundation also recognizes individuals who demonstrate outstanding support for the NFF and its mission of promoting the game of amateur football.

 

Seven U.S. presidents, countless military, business and community leaders and hundreds of football officials and scholar-athletes from all levels are among those who have received these much acclaimed awards.

 

Locally the Los Angeles Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame honors at least 50 high school senior scholar athletes from the Los Angeles City Schools Section and from the Southern Section of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). These young men exemplify what is best in America's youth as the scholar athletes not only excel in the classroom and on the gridiron but contribute to their community through voluntary efforts ranging from assistance to the elderly, patient care in hospitals to the coaching of aspiring footballers in leagues and clinics. The Los Angeles Chapter hosts an annual dinner in March of each year to formally acknowledge the accomplishments of these young men and to recognize selected scholar athletes with financial aid as they continue their education to be intelligent, thoughtful and responsible leaders in their community. The chapter also seeks to provide financial assistance to local high athletic departments for trainer activity, high school counseling offices and to library operations.

 

Commencing 2016, the chapter will also honor one high school football coach who has demonstrated a coaching standard that maintains the ideals of the National Football Foundation.
