New York Patriots

Established in 2016, the New York Patriots are the graduate team for Pioneer League alumni and a collegiate level developmental program for players 18 years and older.  The Patriots have became a premier Metropolitan Area football program with the mission of the team is to be dedicated to a quality experience for players by using a highly structured organizational system and structure that was lacking in the football landscape.  The Patriots evolved into ambassadors of the game of football, and the City of New York traveling thousands of mileseach season playing a independent, interstate and international schedule.

Pioneer Football League


The New York Patriots completed their Canadian series and are now back in New York regrouping after a string of losses.  The latest was a disastrous 1st quarter which yielded 3 touchdowns, 2 which were scored on punt returns.  By the time that the small group of 25 that made the trip were able to rebound it was too late and the Niagara Regional Raiders took the International Bowl belt for the 2nd straight season.

The Patriots are more than just football, and although their performance on the field was not enough to achieve victory, the evidence of the success of the last 2 weeks has been noticed both on and off the field.  We will see in the upcoming weeks how these experience effect the path of the team and the players alike.

The New York Patriots returned safe and sound from their journey to Quebec this weekend. The atmosphere was electric as the lower stands were packed with people and the upper stands were occupied by some guys giving Coach Patterson and the boys some lessons in French. The Patriots battled till the last second as an “obstruction” penalty in the end zone reversed a touchdown in the final minutes of the game. The Patriots lost 9-6 giving up a touchdown, extra point and 2 Rouges.

The day included a marriage proposal in the pre game ceremonies, 2 national anthems sung beautifully by a local singer, and an experience that these young men will never forget. They will try to score their first win north of the border this weekend in Ontario against the Niagara Regional Raiders.


Patriots Drop 2nd Straight in Rhode Island

“We have a lot of work to do in order to compete with this level of competition” said head coach and team owner David Patterson after the New York Patriots were blanked by the Rhode Island Cowboys last night.  It is the work that has been a trademark of getting the Patriots to overcome so many obstacles in order to compete against top tier teams this season.  They did struggle as their night got off to a very tough start with a block punt returned for a touchdown.  For the second week in a row the offense had issues scoring and the defense allowed scores through the air.  They are going to need to regroup quick as they turn around and head to Quebec this weekend for their first of two games north of the border.

Canadian Skills and Drills Clinic

Showcasing Community Principles The Patriot Way

    The New York Patriots hosted their 2nd annual “Canadian Skills and Drills” clinic.  The Patriots taught area youth the Patriot program, including the warm up routine all the way to running out the smoke before game time.  The focus on the Clinic was Canadian rules.  The kids were very interested in the differences between the American game and the way they play north of the border.  Check out PFL Sportscenter for highlights

Huskies Turn Up The Heat On Patriots

In a season of more ups than downs, the New York Patriots second game in the local part of the schedule was another challenge that the staff has to guide the young team through.  “No excuses” said Coach Patterson “we had challenges todays but that is part of any football season.  Next man up and we expect that next man to step up and continue the progress that we have made.

The Queens Huskies air attack chopped up the Patriot secondary for two quick scores in the first half.  After the first one, the Patriots appeared to rebound as a fumble out the back of the end zone was mistakenly not ruled a safety in the Patriots favor.  The Huskies took advantage of the blown call and drove 80 yards to take control of the game.  The Patriot offense came back to tie up the game in the 3rd quarter.  However, the Huskies counter punched on the ensuing possession and didn’t look back.  The Patriots have some time to rebound as they head into a holiday and a bye week before coming back to Rhode Island to face the Cowboys. 


Patriots Back to Winning Ways After

Impressive Performance  Over Boston Panthers





 The New York Patriots finally got back to playing football after 2 weeks of issues that prevented them from hitting the field.  They came out like they missed the game dearly as the defense pitched a 3 and out and took the 4th down punt to the house to open the scoring.  From there the Patriots were able to control field position and rookie Kenya Wiggins added a touchdown catch to his punt return to extend the lead.

The Patriot defense had a strong performance that included constant pressure that kept the Panthers from establishing the run. They sealed the shutout and managed to control field position even after the Panthers were set up on big kickoff returns.  The Patriots are back to work this week against TFL rival Queens Huskies on the road at Liberty Field.

The New York Patriots would like to apologize to the Southern Vermont Storm for the cancellation of today’s game. Our team boarded a bus at 10am ready to roll and have an awesome day of football. After 5 minutes the bus broke down from an issue and the team waited 5 hours to get the bus moving again. Multiple attempts at getting a second bus were unsuccessful as well. We did everything within our power to get there and we came up short. We understand the time and hard work that went into the event and would like to make it right in the near future. Again our apologies and to the players on both sides that took off work and other commitments to not play football we understand the commitment and sacrifice that you make to represent your respective programs.

Patriots First Loss On The Season Comes With Tough Lesson

The fast start to the 2018 season was slowed in the Bay State as the Patriots ran into a very tough Whaling City Admiral team.  The day started with mental mistakes and blown coverages which led to quick touchdowns.  By the time the big stage was something that the young Pats responded to, it was too late and the Patriot offense had a black out of its own as they couldn’t find the end zone on this night.      Captain CJ Murray “You do realize we arguing over 1 loss. I repeat 1 loss.  We literally have another game everybody show up with they hard hat a lunch box and get back to work.”  One of the leaders missing for life responsibilities was Julio Ortiz, he said after the disappointing performance, “CANNOT allow one GAME to dictate the rest of the SEASON. From what im seen it was a bad day at the office just one so dust off relax today but do not forget about the things that when wrong cuz all that needs to be addressed & fix at PRACTICE.”

Patriots Continue Rolling With Win In Hartford

The 2018 season has started the way that the Patriot staff had hoped.  4 games and 4 wins later, the team is starting to mature and some of the things that cost them dearly in 2017 are now in the rear view mirror.  As the bus pulled back into the Bronx the bar was raised on some of the goals set for 2018.  Julio Ortiz (#23) said

“Patt wants us at 9 wins to head to florida and i honestly believe we can go 16 & 0. The coaching staff is here, its up to us to play n make it happen.”

Although the first three wins came in convincing fashion, number 4 was a struggle.  The Colts started the game with an air raid drill and moved the ball through the Patriot secondary for the initial score.   After that the defense tightened and would not let up another score.  The ensuing kickoff was returned 65 yards for a touchdown by Taj Williams.  A Josh Vazquez to rookie phenom Kenya Wiggins score put the Patriots in the lead for the first time in the second half.  The Patriots would hold on to stay perfect.

Patriots Defeat Kings in Week 3

 In year one of the the Patriots the Mount Vernon Centennial Kings combined forces with the new franchise and the New York Patriots were born.  Since last year the Kings came back out and got back to their brand of football and Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx. was the site of the reunion on Sunday and the young boys played their most complete game of the season.

Ed Lawire, Tajae Montgomery and Kenya Wiggins led the offensive attack as the Patriots put up 3 touchdowns and moved the ball well all day.  The star of this one however, was Malik Liverman, with two interceptions with one of them going to the house for the game clinching score.  That makes two weeks in a row that he has made money off of an opponents turnover and that type of playmaking ability is really making the area chat rooms a buzz.

Patriots pulled out their first”real win” of the season as they traveled up to Portland Maine to face the Maine Wolverines.  The Patriot defense posted a shutout and off the strength of 3 turnovers which include Malik Livermans fumble returned 65 yards for a touchdown, the Patriots red uniform debut ended on a winning note by the score of 22-0.  The scoring opened with a Dave Cruz touchdown pass to Argeni Rijo.  Player of the game and rookie Kenya Wiggins reeled in a screen pass with a highlight catch and maneuver for an amazing touchdown. The Patriots move on this week to take on the Mount Vernon Kings. 


The Patriots opened their season today with a business mindset.  Unfortunately the bright sky and beautiful weather that provided the perfect backdrop for football was wasted unnecessarily as the visiting New York Red Mambas were disqualified by the officials for failure to control their team.  The unfortunate incident brought the fun to an end and the Patriots went on to scrimmage each other in order to not waste the entire day.  “It is unfortunate to our players, staff and the fans that came out to watch the game, we will move on to week 2 and learn how to avoid these types of situations in the future.
