Major League Football's Former All Pro Receiver Wes Chandler Selected to Coach Under Armour® All-America Game

WILMINGTON, DE--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2015) - Major League Football Inc. (OTC PINK: MLFB), spring-football's new, professional spring-football league scheduled to kick off in 2016, today announced that its President, Wes Chandler, was selected as the offensive coordinator for Team Highlight in the 8th annual Under Armour® All-America High School Football Game held in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Chandler was working alongside longtime friend and Head Coach of Team Highlight, Herman Edwards, at the ESPN® Wide World of Sports in Orlando conducting team practices and fulfilling one of Major League Football's core missions, giving back to the community. Wes Chandler has spent the past three years training high school athletes for Under Armour® at regional camps as part of the Under Armour® Rivals Series. This year he has joined the coaching staff for the High School All-America Game. Chandler explains that it means something very personal for him to participate in the event. "It gives me a chance to give something back to tomorrow's stars and to the sport which I love dearly," Chandler stated.

Chandler is not only respected by his players but his fellow coaches. One such coach, former New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Herm Edwards, said, "When I played at Cal we played Florida and Wes was a freshman so we go way back. He was a great high school player, a great college player and a great professional player. Most of these kids are too young to know what he did as a player, but having been great at so many levels is something that allows him to relate to these kids and helps him pass on some very important lessons to them."

Major League Football's executives include leading names in pro football. Wes Chandler, President, and Ivory Sully, EVP of Branding and Licensing for MLFB are both ex-NFL professionals who actively coach and volunteer their time for junior leagues and teams.
