DAFFL Still Going Strong

Hunter Huebsch’11 shared:
The 16th Annual Deerfield Academy Fantasy Football League “The DAFFL” held its annual draft the weekend of August 18, 2023.

The DAFFL, which held is first draft in the Greer in 2008, is the greatest fantasy football league in the history of the multiverse.

Commissioner Hunter Huebsch ’11 and the Office of the Commisioner of The DAFFL would like to congratulate manager Matthew Doyle (2010) on his league-leading 4th championship.

Regarding Doyle’s fourth championship, League Manager Albert Ford (2010) commented, “You know, it’s not often a blind squirrel finds one nut, but 4! Seriously?!”

Alex Ward ’11, who lost to Doyle in the 2022 Championship game remarked, “I just wasn’t looking to the hills hard enough this year.”

Jimmy Bitter ’11, who has never even come close to winning a coveted DAFFL Championship stated, “I’m just not a football guy, I’m really in this league to keep in touch with my good friends.”

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.
