About Us

The LAFB Network

The LAFB Network is your home for the Los Angeles Football content that you deserve.

The goal of the site is to feature, analyze, and narrate the great players and teams of the City of Angels, a city with amazing sports history and an even brighter future. While we do break news stories, news and game recaps are not our niches. Analysis, film breakdown, and storytelling is what we are about. We are professionals, but also fans, creating a voice for the fans.

We are THE LA Football Destination.

LAFB also provides industry-leading Fantasy Football advice, as well as NFL and College Football betting guidance.

Our flagship podcast is the Bleav in LA Football Podcast, hosted by The Coach and The Don, and is also apart of the Bleav Podcast Network. Listen in as The Coach and The Don discuss the rich history, exciting present, and the bright future of LA football. With USC, UCLA, Chargers, Rams, and more, they keep you up to date and in the know on all things LA Football, bringing one of a kind expert insight and analysis.

On the podcast Bleav in Spirits And Sports History, Ryan Dyrud (the Don from Bleav In LA Football) gives you history lessons on spirits and sports history.

The Dynasty Professors is a podcast dedicated to Fantasy Football and helping you win your Dynasty league.

Grew up in Denver with a passion for all sports and an emphasis on the NFL. Moved to Los Angeles where I graduated from Long Beach State with a degree in Leisure Services (Yes the Van Wilder degree).

Associate Editor, Co-Host of The Bleav In LA Football Podcast with The Coach & The Don

I grew up in Missouri and moved out to California in 2017 but will forever be a diehard Chiefs fan. I graduated from Northwest Missouri State University and currently reside in Orange County. I love the NFL and everything that comes with it. My passion for sports isn’t what sets me apart, it’s my passion for telling the story behind sports.
