CCYF Circa 1984 - Offensive line gives quarterback Sean Bolan lots of time to hand off to Kyle Crowston.

Until the early 1980's the only tackle football in Clark County was the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) program, mostly played by kids who attended the Catholic parishes in town.

In 1982, after CYO had decided to drop tackle football, the kids were left with no where to play. The director of the program at St. Joseph's parish, Jack Ryan, called a meeting of his coaches, Dr Dan Morasch, Terry Hyde and Al Woldrich to decide whether to drop youth football, or to move forward and somehow form a new league. After long discussions, a couple pizzas, and some pitchers of soda, the four men formed "CLARK COUNTY YOUTH FOOTBALL".

CCYF Circa 1984In 1983 the league began with 3 teams. One 7th & 8th grade team and one 5th & 6th grade team that played in the Portland Boys Club. One 3rd & 4th grade team that played in I-205 Belt League. With all the leagues in Portland, most of the games were played there too, so it meant a lot of dedication from players, parents, and coaches to get the kids where they needed to be.

Entering our 28th season the league has grown to 60+ teams, and more than a 1500 participants, and were still growing strong.

The CCYF program has always been about giving the players a safe, positive football experience, with the motto "Kids First and Winning Second." It has been a goal of CCYF to help build feeder programs to the local high schools, to help them reach their ultimate goal of winning a state championship for their school. This goal was first met in 1995 by the kids who had played for the Lewis River Raiders and went on to win the state class "A" championship for Ridgefeild High School. Then again in 2004 when Evergreen High School won the WIAA 4A State Championship.

The CCYF program is dedicated to continued growth and to allow more young athletes to play the sport of football with the belief that, "Most Teams Help People Become Better Athletes, But the Best Teams Help Athletes Become Better People".
