All coaches and board members should have back ground checks done prior to being handed a team ... It does not cost that much and it benefits the whole community . This would have resolved most of the problem . As far as the racial accusations lol ... You just can't fix stupid ! Grow up black man ..!.... My kids have always played in Rosepine and we have never had a problem like this. They are not perfect but the kids are put first !

The DYFL is starting of on the right foot this year at their Feb 28th board meeting. Last year they cut off registration for the 11-12 year old age group so they could dominate and run up scores on everyone. To bad those extra 10-15 kids who registered in time were not allowed to play because that would "split the talent." It is not about teaching kids and developing football skills for the kids that want to play and registered in time. It is about winning at all costs! It is going to be tough on those kids when they go to Junior High School and its not about winning but developing football skills and giving FAIR play time.
Luckily the board decided on only allowing one team for the age group of 11-12 again this year, even though there will be even more kids moving up into that age group. At least they will be able to "weed out" the kids they want to make sure the DeRidder team can get HUGE Championship rings and a Championship party again this year!
Well earned again, LOL.
Sorry East Beauregard, South Beauregard, DeQuincy, Merryville, Rosepine but you dont have a chance unless you cheat as well. Hope they do not bruise your kids egos by running up scores again?????
SW League enforce change

Lake Charles, LA

#24 Mar 6, 2013
The teams of the SW League need to get together and push for change!
it can be done because there is NEPOTISM occuring at the league level and DYFL Executive Board and Commissioner level.
THERE are rules in the By-Laws and Articles about NEPOTISM
SW League President - Trollis Hickman
SW Secretary - Christy Hickman (Trollis Wife)
DYFL President- Stephan Hickman (Trollis Brother)
DYFL Secretary- Charity Calcote (Christy's Daughter)
DYFL Commissioner/Board member - Stephen Calcote (Charity's Husband)
ADD DYFL Head of Commissioners- Millard Bradford (Very close family friend of Trollis and Stephan)
This family has had total voting control over DYFL for years!
This family now controls SW League and DYFL.
And it is about control because they will tell anyone that goes against them that nothing can be done because they have control!
For example; One of these was cussing on the sideline of a game and the referee said he needed to talk to the DYFL President to make a report. The referee was told that will not work because the man cussing was related to the DYFL President. The Referee then said, "well I need to report it to the SW League President," he was told that will not work because he is related to the SW League President. This DYFL board member?Commissioner was never suspended or punished for cussing infront of a referee at a game with a sideline full of 4, 5, 6 yr olds.
Please let me know your thoughts???

Does anyone know if any changes have been made? Have they started their registration yet? From what I see in past post, does SW League answer to anyone? Hopefully the kids will not suffer to much for some really stupid mistakes. I don't have any kids, but if I did, I would not let them play for any league in this outfit.
One other question, looks like a lot of family.. that is one thing that needs to be changed, if there is that much family, they should excuse themselves because that is totally unfair to the other leagues. In any organization, members of boards are not allowed to related to anyone on the board. Lots of questions need to be answered. Has anyone done anything????

How do you know that the coaches in Rospine are safe??? How would you know that in any town with youth sports leagues? Would they tell you? Could they prove it? Most certain can't trust DYFL right now, but again what about the other leagues?

THERE ARE ALOT THAT WILL NOT LET THERE KIDS PLAY FOR DYFL THIS YEAR, BUT I AM NOT ONE. NO MATTER WHAT GOES ON, I WILL JUST HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO MY SON THAT IS NOT HOW TO ACT BUT TO NEVER QUIT. AND AS FAR AS THE COMMENTS MADE ABOUT THE ONE 11-12 YR OLD TEAM, I AGREE WITH YOU THAT THEY SHOULD ALLOW 2 TEAMS SO EVERY CHILD CAN PLAY. ALOT OF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE CONVICTED FELONS AND LYING, BUT DID YOU EVER SEE THE APPLICATION WHERE THE SUPPOSEDLY LIED ON THEM? THE BOTTOM LINE HERE IS THAT 2 COACHES CAME IN THAT REALLY WORKED WITH THESE BOYS AND OTHER PEOPLE BECAME JEALOUS, WHEN IN FACT THEY SHOULD HAVE ALL BEEN WORKING TOGETHER. I BET HALF OF YOU DONT EVEN KNOW THAT THESE 2 COACHES PAID OUT THERE POCKET FOR I ABOUT 4 OR 5 OF THESE KIDS TO PLAY. NOT BECAUSE OF TALENT BUT BECAUSE IT WAS GOING TO KEEP THEM OUT OF TROUBLE. DONT GET ME WRONG I WOULD BE CONCERNED TO IF I DIDNT KNOW THE WHOLE STORY BEHIND SOME OF THESE CHARGES BUT I DO. SO MAYBE NEXT TIME BEFORE YOU JUDGE THESE YOUNG MEN KNOW THE WHOLE STORY. AND AS FAR AS SLANDER OF MR. RUSS, APPARENTLY YOU ALL DID NOT SEE WHAT HE HAD POSTED ON THE DYFL FACEBOOK, BUT THEN REMOVED IT. GET IT TOGETHER PEOPLE.

Proud football Mom. Stop acting like you know anything about this matter. First of all Mr. Meissner DID NOT post anything on Facebook! He did not even have access to it because I did! He did make me remove it though. Get your lies straight before you make ignorant statements!!!

All the same people are in charge of the DYFL and yes most of them are related to each other and related to the felons in question. Rosepine is a much safer league that cares about the welfare of kids first! Not winning at any cost.
There is only one mom that would know any of this information and she is part of the family all related to each other and a board member trying to cover a deplorable league that has made some extremely questionable decisions.
Good luck finding sponsors who do not want to have their companies or families associated w this league.
The only reason this league is still half way running is because of Mrs. Brandi Lampkin's hard work and devotion to her kids and Mr. Bennie.

"PROUD FOOTBALL MOM" go peddle your BS and ALL CAPS crap somewhere else! And get your facts straight!

"DISGUSTED PARENT" IF MR. MEISSNER DID NOT POST IT AND YOU DID, I GUESS THAT MAKES YOU JUST AS BAD AS THE NEXT. AND FOR THE RECORD, SINCE YOU DO NOT HAVE ALL OF YOUR FACTS, WE ARE NOT ALL RELATED. BUT I WONDER WHY YOU WOULD EVEN THINK THAT! HAVE A GREAT FOOTBALL SEASON.
Thank you DYFL

Some of the people that have opinions posted on here are just stupid. Dont hate because you are not a board member of DYFL. I think the "family" does an excellant job at running things. I know the shit kicker is Brandie Lampin. Give it up bull dagger, you can't win.

Instead of bashing a family for being involved with our youth, I think we should be grateful to have people like them that are willing to donate their time ensure our children have a league to play for. Everyone one has their own opinions and some on here state these as if the are facts when really these said facts probably have been misconstrued and are so far from the truth. Dont believe everything you read people!!!! I'm proud for me and my children to be a part of DYFL!!!!

See the Nationalreport.net website I link this forum topic.. its a shame how this city is hiding behind Religion and using to afraid of change to enforce a government mandated law to protect our kids.. it don't matter in what timeframe, he or she should not be allowed to work with
children. Additionally, pending convictions of or arrests for the following things should be considered
disqualifiers until an organization decides otherwise:
Any sort of abuse or assault/battery physical or sexual
Rape
Any crime of a sexual nature, including possession or dissemination of pornography
Homicide or manslaughter in any degree
Attempted murder
Domestic violence
Child neglect
Felony drug crimes
you see battery Earl Westbrooks coaches 7/8 I found out it is true he shouldn't be coaching ..
Animal cruelty
Theft/robbery
Forgery/fraud
Kidnapping
Arson
Weapons violations
Any crime, misdemeanor or felony, involving children as either an accomplice or victim.. or this can be our town and youth sports

They are money Hungry scandalists. They don't take care of their errors and you have to be a Monday through Friday work parent in order to qualify for their league. They are pathetic. With all my league experience by next spring I will have a league going that's fair and doesn't soak up all a persons money
