Organized in 1998 by a group including Mike Morrell and president Doug Stone, the Oregon Football League brought together the southern Oregon teams playing primarily as independents during the mid-90's

In 1998 the Rogue Warriors dominated the scene running off to an 8-0 record and the inaugural OFL Championship.

The OFL expanded in 1999 with the addition of the Grants Pass Marauders, but it was the Rogue Valley Blaze who ended the Warriors unbeaten streak at 9 in a row, but couldn't double the feat in the '99 Championship as the Warriors were crowned Back-to-Back OFL Champs.

2000 saw the departure of the Rogue Valley Blaze, and the first northern addition to the league in the Salem Doom.  The Doom ended it's run after only 3 games, and the Klamath Crusaders ascended to the OFL throne winning close game after close game, including the 21-20 championship victory over the two-time defending champs.

2001 was a contraction year back to four teams as the Doom were gone and the Marauders ended their run in the OFL after two seasons.  An expansion team in the east arose with the addition of the Central Oregon Stampede out of Bend, OR.  The Outlaws would take the OFL title in the lowest scoring championship game in league history, a 3-2 win over the Crusaders.

The Warriors regained their crown in 2002 with a one-point championship victory over the Stampede, while the defending Champion Outlaws found themselves in the cellar.  This was the first time the league roster remained with the same lineup in 2 consecutive years since it's inception.

2003 was an explosion of expansion as the four-team OFL became an eight-team version of what it would remain with the inclusion of teams from the Eugene area previously playing in the Nineman League.  The Northwest Timberwolves and Eugene Red Dragons joined, as did upstart teams Columbia River, Southwestern Oregon Raiders, and Umpqua Valley Knights.  The Stampede were the class of the regular season, but the Warriors once again took the Championship with a 48-21 dismantling of the Stampede in the title game.  The Douglas County Outlaws, an original charter team did not return for a sixth season.

From worst to first, and back again.  That's what 2004 was for the Eugene Dragons as they went from an 0-8 team in 2003 to a 9-1 championship team that defeated the Stampede 24-7.  In doing so, the Dragons and their management became one of the most controversial in league history.  The Northwest Timberwolves, were replaced with the Oakridge Timberwolves of the Nineman League, while the league expanded again with the Siskiyou Savages near Crescent City, California becoming a member.

In 2005 the Dragons were knocked off the throne with a playoff defeat by the Rogue Warriors who went on to claim their fifth championship trophy.  Allegations swirled back and forth after the season regarding the expected expansion of the Eugene-based Oregon Outlaws from the Nineman League, and before long, the Dragons packed up their team and departed for the Washington-based Pacific Northwest Football Conference.  An ill-advised move, as the Dragons suffered through two crushing seasons including a record-setting 105-0 loss to the South Sound Shockers in '07.  The Timberwolves also ended their alignment with the OFL after the 2004 season.

As expected, the Oregon Outlaws from the Nineman League joined the OFL along with a new team in Salem called the Monarchs.  The Outlaws ran the table and kept the Warriors from a 6th title and also became the first OFL team to win the championship with an undefeated record since the '98 Warriors.  The Salem Monarchs were a middle of the pack 5-4 team, but would end up changing the face of Oregon football in a short couple of years.

The Outlaws won back-to-back titles with a 29-20 win over the High Desert Lightning.  The Lighting, formerly the Central Oregon Stampede, shocked the OFL with an upset playoff win over the Rogue Warriors.  The Salem Monarchs changed their name to the Oregon Monarchs while the Columbia River Coyotes broke the record for longest losing streak.  The Outlaws, as Champs of the OFL were set to face the South Sound Shockers of the PNFC in the first GNFA Qualifier game, but due to too many injuries, pulled out and the Lightning as runners-up took their place.  The Shockers were too much and advanced to the GNFA title game with a 47-2 win at Fort Lewis' Cowan Stadium.

2008 saw the OFL break into divisions for the first time in an effort to shorten road trips and cut down on travel expenses for the teams.  The Siskiyou Savages changed their name to the South Coast Storm, while the Vancouver Vipers and Springfield Buzzards joined as expansion teams.  This was also the end of the line for the Southwestern Oregon Raiders as they shut down operations.  The Oregon Monarchs halted the Outlaws run for a third straight title with a one-point playoff victory, then went on too dominate the Warriors in the Championship game 55-14 and in so doing, started a  Northwest winning streak that would not be ended until the 2011 PFL playoffs.  The Columbia River Coyotes finally ended their run of futility after setting a GNFA record 40-consecutive losses.  The Monarchs defeated the Blue Mountain Stars in the GNFA Championship game played in Portland.

For 2009, the OFL returned to single division play with the departure of the Coyotes and the South Coast Storm.  The Monarchs decimated the competition enroute to back-to-back titles, the fourth time in OFL history a team accomplished the feat.   In doing so, the Monarchs set an OFL scoring record and shattered many offensive records.  Traveling to Wenatchee, Washington for the GNFA Championship, the Monarchs came from behind to win a second GNFA crown.

The final official year of the OFL, pre-Pacific League merger again saw the Monarchs appear untouchable except for a close 13-10 win at Umpqua Valley in mid season.  However, the Knights, hoping to repeat the feat with a different outcome got blasted in the championship game 52-7.  The Monarchs became the first team to win 3-straight OFL titles.  The GNFA Championship game never got off the ground as the Washington League champion Hermiston Hurricanes refused to take on the Monarchs and forfeited the game just days before it was to be played.

The Pacific Football League was formed in 2011 and the OFL was placed in the southern division, with the exception of the Umpqua Knights who terminated operations due to health issues with management, and the Vancouver Vipers, who were moved to the PFL North with the Washington based teams.  The closure of the OFL also ended a record-setting nine championship game appearances by the Rogue Warriors, who came away with five championship trophies in the thirteen years of the OFL.  2001, '04, '07, & '10 were the only years the Warriors watched the title game from the stands.
