Being able to play quality competition so close to Oregon and being apart of the # 1 premier league in the country was a driving force behind the South Lane Buzzards wanting to join the (GDFL).We will be playing quality opponents who are within a reasonable footprint of Eugene Oregon.

We are excited to be in a league with high standards,"The idea is to come here to play for a  National title and try to go through the structured playoffs system and go all the way to a National Championship.

 You’re facing the top teams in the country from other states and regions and there are no easy wins, there’s just strong teams, so every game is like a playoff game. This level of competition is not easy."

"This is the perfect competition for (our team). Every game is tough, you face strong teams that are organized and have good coaches and are very well organized, so I think this is the best competition that our players can be in."said Team President Josh Higbee.
