Snoop To Face Off Against Terrell Owens In 'Snoop Bowl'
Snoop Dogg will coach his team, The Snoop Dogg All-Stars, who will face off against a local team led by Buffalo Bills' wide receiver Terrell Owens and Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter.
The two teams will face off at Miami's Traz Powell Stadium, where Owens and Porter hope to put a dent in Snoop's All-Stars' nearly unblemished record.
"I am happy that we've been doing this event for eight years - the kids love it and I do too," Snoop Dogg told AllHipHop.com. "The future NFL stars play in this game annually and its fun to watch the kids imitate there favorite NFL stars. The Snoop Bowl is as big as the Super Bowl to every kid playing organized football in the USA because they aspire to play against my team or to be coached by Coach Snoop "The Great." I love being me wouldn't you like to be an All Star too?"
The event is being sponsored by Title Sports Drink and Snoop Dogg's Snoop Youth Football League, which has garnered praise from the Wall Street Journal to the LA Times and numerous other outlets.
"We're very proud to be involved in such a great event," Kevin Sepe, President of Title Sports Drink added. "It allows us to both sponsor youth football at its finest and hydrate some of our future stars."
In addition to raising over $100,000 since its inception, the Snoop Bowl and the SYFL are noted for the quality of players the league has produced.
This year, nine players on Los Angeles' undefeated Crenshaw High School football team rise through the ranks of the league.
"I also want to thank Title Sports Drink for stepping up to participate in something that is not only good for the community but a ton of fun, ya dig?" Snoop added.
Snoop Dogg's 8th Annual Snoop Bowl kicks off February 6th at 1:30pm at Traz Powell Stadium in Miami.
