The Philadelphia Two-Hand Touch Football League’s Administration
The League’s Commissioner, Michael (Blade) Wallace has been very instrumental in steadily expanding the
league from 7-8 teams per season to 16-18 per season. His administrative duties also include sanctioning of the
league and the team; as well as, the securing of proper permits for playing fields. Scheduling and public relations duties also fall under the Commissioner’s long list of responsibilities. To assist with maintaining the integrity of the fields and having them prepared weekly for games, Coach Jerome (Bus) Rogers of the Championship Cobra organization is always available to lend a hand as the Head grounds man.
The league’s board and Administration includes Vice Commissioner- Bobby Johnson, Lieutenant Commissioner- Randy Carpenter and Advisory Board Member -Steve Rocket Johnson. Together they pool resources
to assist the league commissioner with outreach opportunities; as well as, organizing league fund raisers. They
are also responsible for maintaining an official league presence in the absence of the commissioner and if required to exercise all duties in his stead if so required.
Other individuals who have very instrumental in the success of the PTTFL in recent years are Coach Ben of
the long standing championship Seminole Organization and Carl (Bo) Bohannon of the perineal powerhouse
and previous team of the decade UT Championship Organization. They both have helped in many ways to
propel this league and its teams into the National spotlight. A special word of consideration goes to Archie
Alston who recently retired from the league and the board as he was very involved in the recent growth of the
league.
