Guillermo "Memo" Moreno

Commissioner

Memo was born and raised here in Phoenix and has strong ties to his community.  He joined the PGFFL in the Fall of 2019 as just a hobby and to try to live a more active lifestyle.  Memo settled into the league quickly and felt the PGFFL was much more than a hobby for him.  It was the game that brought him to the fields and the people that made him stay.  Memo found family within the PGFFL.

Memo joined our board in 2021 as the PGFFL's Director of Marketing & Media and then won the Commissionership in 2022.  Memo is excited to serve his fellow members and lead our organization.

Jessica Diaz

Treasurer

Jessica joined our league in 2019 not ever having played flag football, but gave it a shot because she’s extremely passionate for the sport and supporting the LGBTQ+ community. Little did she know her teammates would soon become her family and Phoenix her home away from home. Since joining, she’s played in one Gaybowl with Phoenix Fahrenheit and had the opportunity to captain her own team in the Fall of 2021. Off the field, you can find Jessica traveling, volunteering, cheering for the Arizona Cardinals, and spending time with her family. 


As a newly appointed treasurer for the the board, Jessica plans to use her professional accountant experience to maintain financial responsibility for the league, create sustainable budgets, and serve as an advocate for all of our players.

Aaron Maya

Director of Tournament & Travel

Aaron is native to Arizona and has strong roots set in the community.  He had previously heard quite a bit about the PGFFL through his participation in other LGBTQ+ sports organizations and through repeated recruitment attempts by other league members. Aaron finally decided to join the league in the Fall of 2021. He had never played football growing up and wasn't sure what to expect. From the beginning, he felt a sense of inclusion and support, with many people from the league taking the time to teach him routes, rules, and strategy.  He felt that he fit right into the PGFFL FAMILY.  In his second season, Aaron was able to give back to the league by becoming a captain in one of the PGFFL's largest season's ever. He was wanting to do nothing more than to make people feel the same way he felt when coming into the league. At the end of his second season,  Aaron decided to make another huge leap and serve on the Board of Directors. Aaron has learned that his strong foundation in sports and community is a unique strength that he wants to flex to make the PGFFL an even better organization!
