Iron Sharpens Iron:

This isn’t your typical football league. The IDFFL is designed to teach, mentor, and prepare athletes to compete at the highest levels of football.

Our unique approach is similar to coaching strategies used at the professional ranks. Each player will improve their football skills through constant repetitions in a competitive setting. Every coach and founder has played in the NFL, CFL, NCAA, or CIS. They know what it takes to make it at the next level. And they are dedicated to teaching those skills to the up-and-coming athlete.


EAT, SLEEP, TRAIN, REPEAT | Your Season Starts Today! The IDFFL has already trained a number of athletes in the CIS, NCAA Division 1, as well as NFL and CFL professionals. To make it easier to train with us, IDFFL will now be offering its high performance football training membership at participating SST (Sports Specific Training) locations, our new sports performance affiliate.

REGISTER NOW! Monthly memberships starting as low as $69! Ages 10+ (CIS players welcome)

What the people are saying:


Kevin Surnlin- Texas A&M Head Football Coach

“I’ve watched the whole thing (7 on 7 football) change over time. The ability…to be coached and work year round, that’s so important”- Kevin Surnlin, Texas A&M Head Football Coach.

- Kevin Surnlin, Texas A&M Head Football Coach

Jordan Younger

“Looking back on my career the only true regret that I have is not learning more about my craft at a young age. When you reach the next level, players who understand what is going on right away have a much better chance to succeed. My goal as a coach and a mentor at IDFFL is to give our players a head start in both the technical and mental aspects of the game” – Jordan Younger

- Jordan Younger-CFL veteran

Jimbo Fisher

“Look at the NFL. It’s the way its spread out…I think the kids are getting developed better… across the country right now because now football has taken on all the 7 on 7(elements”)- Jimbo Fisher

Kenny Ladler

Coach Cannon was a great influence to me in my development before I started football at the college level.   The knowledge he shared with me helped build the foundation of my game today.   He was also able to prove to me that you can make it to the NFL from any school if you are willing to work hard enough for it.” Kenny Ladler – Safety at Vanderbilt University 

- Kenny Ladler – Vanderbilt

Darrian Seaton

“Darrian is becoming more of a better well rounded young man and athlete. In the words of my son ”Anthony is the best trainer I ever had’’, Anthony Cannon we will be with you for a very long time!” – Darrian Seaton-Tucker
