FORMATION OF THE CDFFL
The "Capital District" region of the New York State encompasses a large area running
from approximately Lake George in the north to the Catskill Mountains
in the south, the stateline in the east to the city of Amsterdam in the
west. Four major cities anchor it's corners: Albany, Saratoga Springs,
Schenectady, and Troy. Always a hotbed for H.S. football, unorganized
"touch football" began popping up during the 1960's and 1970's in the major
cities. An area that is flush with colleges, local players also became
familar with flag football from their intermural programs.
mid-1980's, informal flag football leagues consisting of 4 to 8 teams each
became popular in Albany and Scotia, a suburb of Schenectady. In 1990,
George Higgins decided to hold a "New York State Flag & Touch Football
Championship" that August. His league on Long Island had grown during
the 1980's and his teams were hungry for out-of-town competition.
