TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Rapper Snoop Dogg has coached his Snoop Youth Football league team to a championship in Tampa, Fla., attendees say.

Those in attendance this weekend at Snoop Bowl VII saw the rapper's Los Angeles youth football team defeat the Tampa Bay All Stars, who were coached by former Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Mike Alstott, The Tampa Tribune said Sunday.

More than 3,000 people were on hand Saturday to watch the Snoop Dogg All Stars win 16-6 over the home team.

"Both teams are pretty good," said Millie Bryant, whose son Ventell played in the youth league championship.

Youth football coach Eric Carter was at the game to watch his son, Samuel Jackson, play and told the Times he would not consider offering any football advice to the losing coach.

"He's got a lot more experience than me," he said of Alstott, a former fullback for the Buccaneers.
