Larry's Last Stand

Larry Fitzgerald came through for the White Guys when they needed him most

Larry Fitzgerald

In what may have been his final YFFL game, Larry Fitzgerald made it count.

Down by 1 point heading into the Sunday afternoon games and with two Eaters players set to go on Monday night, the White Guys needed Fitzgerald to give them something if they wanted to capture Super Bowl XXV. The 14-year veteran did what he has always done: quietly deliver.

Fitzgerald scored 10 points behind 119 yards and a touchdown, which was enough for the White Guys to hang on for a 55-50 Super Bowl victory, their first since 2007.

Again leading the way was Todd Gurley, who finished a remarkable postseason with a 22-point effort (giving him 68 points thru 3 games, a new record) to become just the second player to win a regular season and Super Bowl MVP in the same season (Brett Favre, 1997). Also of note: the White Guys were able to overcome receiving just 2 points combined(!!) from their kickers in their 3 postseason victories.

The White Guys victory prevented the Eaters from becoming the 4th team in league history to repeat as champions, as their high powered ground game was let down by their receiving corps, who combined for 0 yards and 0 points. However, with a great core of young players, the Eaters very well may be back looking for a 2nd title in 3 years next season.

Congratulations to the High 5'n White Guys, your Super Bowl XXV champions!

2017 YFFL Award Winners

Todd Gurley


Most Valuable Player

Todd Gurley - White Guys (23 points)

After 10 consecutive seasons of quarterbacks, Todd Gurley is the first RB to win a MVP since LaDainian Tomlinson's historic season in 2006 thanks to 116 points on 11 touchdowns through the ground and air.

Deshaun Watson


Rookie of the Year

Deshaun Watson - Buddies (27 points)

Watson started slow, but improved every week of the season before ripping off 113 points in a 4 week span (including three 30+ point games). A season ending injury cost him the final five weeks of the season, but Watson looks like the YFFL's next star.

Case Keenum


Macor Misa

Case Keenum - Thugs (23 points)

Who knew that a journeyman with six career points would end up becoming one of the most dependable QBs down the stretch? Keenum tallied 76 points during his final five games of the season as the Thugs became one of the YFFL's most dangerous spoilers.

Anthony Aceto


Owner of the Year

Anthony Aceto (32 points)

After a disappointing 2016 season, Aceto's two teams started out strong and just. keep. winning. It all added up to a pair of perfect 7-0 starts, a division title, a Wild Card berth, a MVP, and possibly a Super Bowl championship?
