10 Surprising Pop Warner Players


Snoop Dogg

This rapper-turned-benefactor is bringing youth football to the masses, releasing a Pop Warner 2.0 version. Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, is a former Pop Warner player and high school quarterback. Despite a few well-reported brushes with the law and a slew of stage and television appearances, Dogg managed to become a certified football coach who was deeply involved in leading his sons' football teams. In 2004, he launched a West Coast football youth league, known as Snoop Youth Football League. The league recently expanded to Chicago, where its hallmarks are free football clinics for at-risk children and allowing participation from parents with criminal records.
