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

Extra Yard for Teachers is the CFP Foundation's primary cause platform that seeks to elevate the teaching profession by inspiring and empowering teachers through the implementation of programs in four focus areas: resources, recognition, recruitment, and professional development. The CFP Foundation utilizes multiple partnerships to execute its initative and support positive educational outcomes. 

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.
