Honor. Celebrate. Inspire. Empower.

    Extra Yard for Teachers is the College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation’s primary cause brand.

    The mission of Extra Yard for Teachers (EYFT) is to elevate the teaching profession by inspiring and empowering quality teachers. The College Football Playoff provides an enormous platform to go the extra yard for teachers who have gone the extra yard for us.

    College football is the most readily visible representation of students achieving their dreams of attending college. This road to college is often attributed to the support and commitment of gifted teachers. Throughout the months and weeks leading up to the CFP National Championship, we take time to focus on the people who helped student-athletes across the country reach their dreams of attending college: teachers.
