TYF is a competitive tackle football organization and the teams will be limited to a roster of 30 players.
There are four levels of football teams, named freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. The ages are from seven years old (turning eight before November 15, 2012) through 14 years old (not turning 15 before November 15, 2012).
Players cannot be enrolled in high school. Football candidates must also weigh in at sign ups. Player's age and weight will help determine which team they end up playing on.
Tehachapi football has a long and proud history. If you are interested we hope you will be at sign ups. For questions call Coach John Kramer at 822-9020.
The Tehachapi Tomahawk Football program holds their games at the Benz-Visco Cultural Park, located on Willow Springs Road just south of highway 58.

TYF Alumni RYAN MATHEWS finding success with San Diego Chargers
Tehachapi Youth Football Alumni Ryan Mathews has made history as a first round selection with the San Diego Chargers.
Matthews signed a 5-year deal worth 26.65 million in August 2010 after a successful three-year stint with the Fresno State Bulldogs. Mathews is the projected feature back for San Diego, who hopes to revamp the 'bolts running attack after the departure of long-time future Hall-of-Famer LaDanian Tomlinson.
For the Tomahawks, Mathews was a standout player during the 2001-2002 seasons, helping Tehachapi reach the GEYF Superbowl. Congrats to former TYF standout RYAN MATHEWS!
