The NFL season kicks off this weekend, but the Albany Metro Mallers are in the middle of a playoff race right now!

I love football at any level. With the kickoff of the NFL season this weekend.When I heard there not only was a semi-pro team right here in the Capital District but they were in the playoffs, I had to learn more about them.

Albany Metro Mallers, Northeast Division, GDFL (Gridiron Development Football League), the highest Semi-Professional league in the country (think of AAA minors in pro Baseball, or the NBDL  for pro basketball).

The team is filled with players who have played at the highest level – former NFL, Arena Football,

The Mallers went 8-2 in the regular season & currently played and WON 2 playoff games on their way to a possible championship. I was given the opportunity to talk to the owner of the team, Sal Iavarone, about the team's progress – check what he had to say below:



Good luck to the Albany Metro Mallers as they attempt to bring the GDFL Title back to the Capital District!!!
