Eastside Hawks of Washington State
Minor League Football has long been a tradition in the Pacific Northwest. Dating back to 1961, the NWFL is a non-profit entity registered with the state of Washington. The NWFL belongs to the American Football Association with 509 teams currently participating throughout the country. The goal of the league is to give athletes the chance to showcase their talents and earn an opportunity to play at the next level, whether that is college or professionally. Athletes in the NWFL are not compensated and therefore retain their college eligibility. With that said, the Eastside Hawks are the newest team to be voted into the NWFL.
