The KC Chiefs completed their preseason Saturday, August 27th at New Utrecht High School against the Brooklyn Titans. The Chiefs have been without some of their key players in each of their preseason match-ups and this week was no different.

In the final game of the preseason, the Chiefs were unexpectedly without their starting QB, Sergius. Fortunately for the Chiefs, there is a bit more depth at that position this year and backup QB, Tony, stepped in and delivered a great performance going 5 for 11 with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Tony also ran for a 2-point conversion.

The preseason has given us some electrifying performances. Starting quarterback, Sergius has been exceptional. Wide Receiver, Na'eem has been the star of the preseason as he has put up some very impressive numbers and made some unbelievable plays this preseason and has had at least 2 touchdowns in each preseason game. The Chiefs running back corp, thought to be a position of concern early in training camp has proven more than capable of doing the job. Led by halfback, Tony the running backs have excelled in these contests. Jayda, the starting halfback against the Brooklyn Titans ran for over 100 yards, while fullback, Zenobi has some very impressive carries as well. Willie also contributed a couple of carries and a two-point conversion. Tight end, Artie has been consistent and hauled in at lease 2 catches in each preseason game. The Chiefs offensive line has been stellar.

The Chiefs defense has been very strong. The defense looks to make a very big impact led by defensive linemen, Andre, Devoni, Josiah, David, Tah-Meik and Anthony. The linebacker corp is led by returning linebacker of the year, Zenobi, who is now joined by Tony and Devoni. The Chiefs defensive backs are led by 4-year veteran, Carlo who was joined this year by 4 year player, Willie. Jayda heads the cornerbacks up and is joined by Na'eem at free safety.

The Chiefs will attempt to defend last year's Super Bowl title in the AAU Football League.

August 27, 2016 – The KC Chiefs family suffered a tragic loss on this Saturday shortly after their scrimmage with the Brooklyn Titans at New Utrecht High School. Chiefs Kicker and Defensive Lineman, Anthony Hernandez' older brother, Jonathan Hernandez passed away as the result of a tragic swimming accident in the Delaware River.


Jonathan was just 18 years old. Jonathan was a wide receiver and defensive back that played high school football for New Utrecht High School and was often seen at Chiefs practices to support his younger brother, along with their 16 year old brother Brian Hernandez, currently a defensive end at New Utrecht High School. The family had four sons before the loss of Jonathan and his passing has shook the family and organization at its core with grief.

Jonathan's father, Jose Hernandez and mother, Carmen Hernandez have been overwhelmed with support in this painful and tragic time and are attempting to deal with this loss. The Chiefs support them and will honor their son Jonathan's memory over the entire 2016 season with decals worn on the rear of their helmets with the Initial “H” and his name “Jonathan” written across the decal. A memorial will take place at Halftime of the Kings County Chiefs home opener of September 10, 2016 at New Utrecht High School.


September 10, 2016  – The KC Chiefs provided all the glitz and glamour of an NFL experience complete with a smoke machine entrance as they defeated the Brooklyn Warriors 50-0 at New Utrecht High School in a true team effort.

The Chiefs defensive line was relentless, anchored by Devoni (5 tackles / 3 sacks), Artie (6 tackles / 2 sacks) and Amir (8 tackles / 1 sack) who combined for 6 sacks in the victory. The Chiefs defense was solid from the line to the linebackers. The defensive secondary was just as poised as they also denied the Warriors attempts to move down the field. The defense begins the season holding their opponent to no points and hope to continue this trend through the 2016 season.

     The Chiefs high octane offense was hitting on all cylinders as in their second play from scrimmage resulted in a 41-yard touchdown run by RB, Tony (2 carries / 58 yds / 1 TD). Tony continued his dominance running the ball and even quarterbacked the Chiefs to two 4th quarter touchdowns. Starting quarterback, Sergius was 5 of 10 passing for 122 yards with 3 passing  touchdowns and 1 rushing touchdown.

     WR, Sammy (3 catches / 54 yds 2 TDs) returned to his Super Bowl form by adding two receiving touchdowns, as wr, Na'eem (2 catches / 39 yds / 1 TD) did the same. TE, Qaisiem (1 catch / 31 yds) even got in on the act adding a catch. The Chiefs running back corps was impressive, as Zenobi ( 3 carries / 14 yards) and Jayda (4 carries / 42 yds. / 1 TD) added to the Chiefs ground attack.

The Chiefs ground attack was led by running back, Tony as he ran for 120-yards on 9 carries with 1 touchdown. Chiefs quarterback, Sergius was 8 of 11 for 203 yards with 3 touchdowns passing.  The Chiefs wide receiver corps contributed heavily as Sammy hauled in 2 touchdowns and Na'eem added multiple catches with 1 electrifying touchdown catch and run. The Chiefs tight ends of Qaiseim and Anthony also hauled in 2 big first down receptions. The Chiefs offensive line of Christian, Amir, Josiah, Carmelo and Andre controlled the line of scrimmage the entire game not giving up a single sack.

The Chiefs defense was strong, holding the Broncos to only one touchdown from scrimmage. The Chiefs defense was led by middle linebacker, Josiah who led the team in tackles, followed closely by defensive tackle, Devoni and defensive end, Amir. A couple of key defensive plays were made by the Chiefs defensive backs, cornerback, Willie aka “Noodle” came up big for the Chiefs with a 4th quarter interception and a big run stop by cornerback, Carlo got the Chiefs defense pumped up as the Broncos threatened.

The Chiefs led the entire game with the Broncos only other score coming on a kickoff return. The Chiefs led 20-12 going into the two-minute warning, when on 4th down and 2 yards to go, with only 19 seconds left in the game, Chiefs quarterback, Sergius found Sammy in the back of the endzone to put the Chiefs up 28-12 with just 16 seconds left in the game. This proved to be the final score.

The Chiefs Are Back To Back Superbowl Champions





The KC Chiefs faced off against their crosstown rivals, the Brooklyn Chiefs, in a great contest of youth football, as these two teams have been the most dominant in the NYC area. It was only a matter of time before their paths met and when it did, the talent on both sides of the ball were evident.

On the opening kickoff, the Chiefs recovered an unfielded kickoff and gained possession at the Brooklyn 40-yard line. Running back, Tony broke two long runs that resulted in a red zone opportunity. The result was a spectacular one-handed touchdown grab by Sammy from quarterback, Sergius.

The game went back and forth as Brooklyn answered with a long drive of their own, resulting in a 4-yard touchdown run. The game seemed to hinge on who would make the first stop on defense, when the KC Chiefs did just that. KC stopped Brooklyn on a 4th and short and the KC Chiefs offense took it down and scored, putting them up by a touchdown. KC sealed the deal with a last second dash to the corner of the endzone, by quarterback, Sergius that ended the game and earned the KC Chiefs a hard-fought victory.

KC Chiefs running back, Toni had an outstanding game with a touchdown, as the receiving corps of Sammy, Na'eem and Qaiseim hauled in some extraordinary catches to seal the victory. Not enough can be said about the KC Chiefs outstanding offensive line, as they continue to put the team in a position to win. The KC Chiefs defense was also stellar as they limited Brooklyn's drives with their bend but don't break mentality.

Brooklyn proved themselves a worthy adversary in the New York City area, but the KC Chiefs found a way to win and remain undefeated winning the game 18-14, as they head to the National tournament.

The KC Chiefs made quite the impression, as the team made a statement for NY/NJ football.

The Chiefs had an outstanding tournament. The Chiefs performance was a true team effort, as it took every aspect of the Chiefs' game to pull of the impressive finish.  The finish was controversial, to say the least, as an official's erroneous implementation of non-tournament rules cost the Chiefs a game in the tournament that would have undoubtedly went in their favor under the proper tournament rules.

The Chiefs have had some very intense challenges this Summer but have come out of it better. The team promises to compete for another run at a great season.

The KC Chiefs have released their final roster for the 2018 season. After finishing the regular 2017 AAU Football season in first place in their AAU Football division, the 2018 Chiefs roster has some dramatic changes and new faces. The most evident change is at the quarterback position, which is now played by Sammy, Qaisiem and Anthony. D.J. (RB) returns to the Chiefs backfield attempting to surpass his robust rushing total from last year. He is joined in the 2018 Chiefs backfield by Chiefs' veteran fullback, Zenobi, who had a breakout preseason at fullback.

Sammy returns for the final season of his illustrious youth football career. Qaiseim has been the unexpected surprise of the offseason showing his ability to play the quarterback position.  The Chiefs offensive line returns and is playing at a very high level this preseason, anchored by veteran offensive guards, David and Matthew, as well as center, Thomas. The offseason acquisitions of Charles (DB/WR), Julien (LB/TE), Jalil (DE/OT), Jeremiah (LB/DE), Victor (DT/OT), Anthony (S/WR) and Eben (DB/RB) have made a major impact on the defense as well.  Zenobi (LB) and Damien (LB) anchor the defense at the middle linebacker positions and have restored discipline to the position.

The Chiefs 10U added explosive speed to the backfield with Keyshawn (RB) taking over at halfback with Flash still anchoring the fullback position and turning in some impressive preseason performances. J.J. will continue to lead the team at quarterback and has grown immensely through training camp and the preseason, showing poise at the position. J.J. (DE) and Flash (FB) have also proven to be a volatile combination on defense at linebacker and defensive end. Ryan, Jaylon and Johnny anchor the receiver positions, as Sean and Naseem anchor the offensive and defensive lines. Zion (OT/LB) brings a much-needed toughness to the team with offensive and defensive lineman, Kingston. The 10U hopes to avenge last seasons record and return to contention for a Division championship this year in the AAU Football NY Metro / NJ District.


The KC Chiefs defeat the Harlem Jets at home Saturday by a score of 36-6 on the 12U level and 20-0 on the 10U level. The Chiefs opened up with a big run and never looked back. The Chiefs defense looked solid again.

More to come.

October 7, 2018 - Taking a page out of the NFL Kansas City Chiefs playbook, the youth teams of the KC Chiefs Youth Football club have managed to keep pace with their NFL idols, by going undefeated into week 6 of the AAU Football season.

The Chiefs 10U, led by their dynamic backfield of Keyshawn and Flash, and the solid play of tight end, Johnny and wide receiver, Ryan, have repeatedly found a way to pull out victories in

even the closest of games behind the arm of second year quarterback, J. J.. Chiefs veteran OL/DL, Sean has been a force this season, as well as rookie OL/DL, Omar. The Chiefs defense, under the watchful eye of Defensive Coordinator, Dion Best, has become one of the best in the league and has been able to lock down defenders all season. Let's hope this continues for the next two weeks as the Chiefs vie for a number one seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. With the highly competitive AAU league, one loss could plummet the first place 10U Chiefs all the way down to third place and a road schedule for the playoffs.

Yes, this is the same team that finished last year with an abysmal one win season. When asked about the turnaround, Chiefs President and Head Coach Flash, responded, “Myself and coaches Best, Kevin and Jvonn were committed to changing the culture on the younger team after last season. In my opinion, what the Defensive Coordinator, Coach Dion Best, has done with the defense is the reason this team has made a complete 360. Teams can't beat us if they can't score and the defense has been rock solid under his instruction.”

The Chiefs 10U has racked up wins against some of AAU Football's toughest opponents, but will face the always tough Elmont Cardinals and Hudson County Dolphins in the final two weeks of the season, with very heavy playoff seeding implications. Come out and support these boys at home for the final game of the season.

(Pictured below: Keyshawn - RB, Flash - RB, Johnny - TE)

Led by the veteran stars like Sammy, D. J., Qaiseim, David and Matthew, and sparked by rookie defensive lineman sensation Victor and rookie defensive standout, Charles. The Chiefs defense remains anchored by veterans, Zenobi (LB/FB) and Damien (LB).

The big brothers of the Chiefs organization head into the final two weeks of the season with tough matchups against the Elmont Cardinals and the undefeated Hudson County Dolphins. The Chiefs, although undefeated, find themselves in second place based on AAU Football's point differential.

The Chiefs 12U find themselves in must win situations over the final two weeks of the season, as a loss to Hudson County or Elmont, could drop them to a number three seed in the playoffs and force them on the road in the playoffs.

(Pictured below: Sammy, D.J., Victor, Matt, Qaiseim and David celebrate)
