We are PROUD to be one of the founding football programs of the Mountain Valley Youth Football League.  For over 40 years, the MVYFL has been recognized as an outstanding program in the State of Maryland, with teams that feed the top public high schools in Carroll, Frederick, Howard, and Washington Counties as well as private high schools all over the State. 

We have achieved the USA Football League of Excellence Silver level certification!

All contact games are officiated by experienced and professionally trained referees from the Frederick and Washington County Football Officials Associations.   

Football Programs that compete in the MVYFL:  

  • Mount Airy Bulldogs 
  • Boonsboro Warriors 
  • Brunswick Railroaders 
  • Catoctin Cougars 
  • Francis Scott Key Eagles 
  • Frederick Cadets 
  • Gamber-Smallwood Mustangs 
  • Middletown Knights 
  • South Hagerstown Hubs 
  • Tuscarora (FYSA) Titans 
  • Walkersville Lions 
  • Linganore Lancers
  • Oakdale Bears
  • Urbana Hawks

A special thanks go to the Mt. Airy Volunteer Fire Department and the Town of Mt. Airy for their continued support of the Bulldog Football and Cheer Program. 

The Bulldogs are fortunate to have a home field with lights, which allows us to host 4 - 5 regular-season home games, including some night games, as well as postseason playoff games.     

In early August, to prepare our players for the regular season, our football coaches and players have the opportunity to play pre-season scrimmages as well as participate in various statewide invitational jamborees.  These additional game-like competitions provide our coaches and players the chance to experience competing with other Maryland football programs/leagues outside of the MVYFL.  We may be a small league in terms of total teams, but we ALWAYS more than hold our own no matter who we face.  We never shy away from good competition, and opposing teams have nothing but good things to say about our players, coaches, and fans!   Great football is great football, and that's what we teach!

* Weights in the above chart represent maximum weights for all position players and interior line players per age/level.  If a player, for example, is 8 years old and weighs 115 lbs, they would either need to lose 5 pounds to play an interior line position on Mini-Pony or would need to play up a level on Pony.  Weight rules for each level are for the safety of the players.
