Gridiron Development Football League Schedule 2020 [Reference: 3]


The Gridiron Development Football Leagues is an American Football League where the players aren’t paid in order to continue their College Eligibility. Players can thus continue playing American Football after High School, even though they didn’t get a scholarship to an NCAA College team. They can thus enroll in Private Tuition and use this as a stepping stone to full University Courses & College Teams or Semi-Pro or Pro Football. It can suit players with a slower Development in High School than those who went on to University.

After a decade as a AA Southern Development League, it aimed in 2020 to put teams Nationally, but the season never started due to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic.
