The History of The Ducks

Founding Board Members – Jimmy Knight, Sylin Soeu, Briana Knight, Jermaine Knight, CT Yoeun, Jamal Jones, Micheal Jones

In the fall of 2015, a group of close friends & family got together to discuss creating a youth football program whose ultimate goal was to focus directly on football and the growth of the kids in our community through the sport. A few weeks following the meeting, the birth of the Percy Priest Ducks was announced. Filled with excitement we knew we had greater challenges ahead of us.

We were grateful to kick off our first season (2016) in the NYFL (Nashville Youth Football League) a league made up of 6 teams who believed in creating a league far removed from the politics of youth sports. In the NYFL 2 of our teams went on to become champions.

The following year (2017), we were accepted into the best league in Middle Tennessee, the Tennessee Youth Football League (TNYFL). A league made up of 14 Teams (including us) with a common goal of creating the best atmosphere & opportunities for all players & cheerleaders to thrive & grow.

Entering our 3rd season (2018) we have continued to experience growth & success. We are working day & night to provide the best experience for our parents, as we make our way to the TNYFL Championships at Vanderbilt University.

We believe in Family. We believe in our future. We believe in our Kids. The Percy Priest Ducks have stayed true to the very reason we started this program and we do not plan to stray away from it.
