Plfugerville Hawks Football & Cheer is a volunteer run youth football league for athletes from 3 to 13 yrs old. They are members of the Texas Youth Football Association (TYFA). In 5 short years they've grown to 10 football teams and 6 cheer squads. The 2010 season enrolled 300+ athletes from the Pflugerville & surrounding areas. These 3 teams won their State Semi Final games held this last weekend in San Antonio. While the Hawks have won 3 TYFA championships over the years in various divisions, these are the first Hawk Flag teams (5 & 6 yr olds) to advance and the first year to have 3 divisions represented in the State Final games.
TYFA is one of the largest independent Leagues in the country and the largest in Texas. There are TYFA chapters in the greater metropolitan areas of San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and some squads from the Rio Grande Valley.
