Meet the Executive Board Candidates!

Hello CLYFL Families!

Please take a moment to read the short bios for the Candidates up for election on March 1.


Candidate for President, Michael Compton

Mike is a detail-oriented, strategic thinking, and organized professional. He is an experienced football coach (three years with CLYFL) that will be able to contribute to the operations of our youth football league.

He is a firm believer in youth sports and says they teach youth critical life skills of hard work, perseverance, mental focus, and commitment. To quote Mike, “Youth Sports teach young athletes how to "stand tall" through success and failure. To understand how adversity reveals character. In the case of football, how to achieve common goals through teamwork and sacrifice.” He is committed to sustaining CLYFL as a staple youth organization in the Loudoun County community and a wonderful role model to our youth athletes.

In his free time, Mike can be found getting out doors with his wife Amanda (CLYFL Team Mom), son and daughter, camping, hiking and fishing.


Candidate for Vice President, Sean McElhannon

Sean and his family eat, breath and live youth sports. Sean is a current CLYFL Football Coach and is always willing to lend a helping hand. He is an excellent communicator and team player and his problem solving skills and extensive football knowledge both as a player and coach will be a huge asset to our League.

When asked about why he feels youth sports are important Sean said “youth sports instill discipline, teach teamwork, encourage physical and mental development, and help kids cultivate friendships.”

In his free time, Sean and his wife Amanda, our current Director of Equipment and their three children enjoy quality family time, traveling, getting outdoors, weight lifting and skiing.


Candidate for Secretary, Betsy Montgomery Payne


Although Betsy is a new candidate for CLYFL Secretary, she has been working with the Board for over a year in the position of Volunteer Coordinator. Betsy has streamlined the process and always been quick to help wherever help is needed.

As a Leesburg native, Betsy has many connections in the Community which have helped our League over the past several seasons. Betsy believes that “youth sports are the heart of our community! Not only do youth sports offer a place for kids to be physical and get energy out, they learn teamwork, respect, commitment and how to part of a team.”

When Betsy isn’t volunteering, she, her husband Jeremy (CLYFL Coach) and their two boys love watching football, enjoy great local restaurants and getting outdoors.


Elections will be held on March 1st from 7:30-8:30pm at Catoctin ES Cafeteria. You can get there from the front doors of the school. All members in good standing from the 2022 Fall Season and the 2023 Spring Season are encouraged to come out and vote. If you can't make it, please feel free to send a proxy with someone who can. The proxy is attached to this email. 

Thank you,

CLYFL Board of Directors

What is Ultimate Flag Football?

Ultimate Flag Football is a hybrid football league that incorporates elements from contact football and flag football into an innovative approach with the following objectives:

  • Introduces new athletes to football in a low-contact manner.
  • Encourages passing, receiving, blocking and running in a low-contact manner.
  • Focuses on footwork, hand skills and football fundamentals.

Ultimate Flag is the first and only flag format in Northern Virginia that incorporates the use of helmets and shoulder pads. Like the Pros' Spring training, players expand their football skills without the fear of injury as often seen in the head on collisions in an unprotected flag environment.
