Julius Holt, who played football at Arizona in 1981 and 1982 and has been a driving force behind Tucson youth football in recent years, was recently selected to the American Youth Football and Cheer Hall of Fame.
Holt is the commissioner of the Desert Mountain Region (including Southern Arizona) of the AYF and AYC programs.
“I had no idea I was up for such a prestigious award,” Holt said. “This is based on the entire country. I’m truly honored and humbled.”
Practice starts for AYF teams on July 22 with the first games slated for Aug. 24. For a schedule of all the events and registration information visit the Tucson Youth Football & Spirit Federation (TYFSF) Web site.
