Dayton Youth Football became a member of the NKYFL in 1973. This was a huge step as Dayton had previously operated their own inner city 4 team league. The move turned out to be a great one as 40 years later the DYF is still a strong member in the NKYFL. Originally when DYF made the switch over we were called the Dayton Roadrunners and created a name for ourselves as such. After many years the switch was made to be called the Dayton Greendevils in an effort to align more with our High School.
These days as the Dayton Greendevils we offer football for players ages 5-14 and cheerleading for ages 4-14. We have several age divisions on each side including starters, peewees, midgets, juniors, & seniors. We also offer a spirit squad as an alternative to our youngest cheerleaders just getting started. DYF is primarily made up of children from the city of Dayton, KY but we are also open to other athletes in surrounding grey areas such as Silver Grove, Melbourne, Ft. Thomas, Southgate. For the past few seasons we are happy to say our numbers have grown to nearly 250 young athletes per year and with that growth has come steady growth and success to the DYF program!
