Youth Game Modeled after the U.S. Army All-American Bowl

 

Wharton, NJ – 12/6/10– All American Games, Football University and Eastbay are proud to announce that Josh Schneider, a 7th-grader from Muskego, Wisc., has been selected to play in the 2011 Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl taking place in San Antonio, Texas, on Sunday, January 9, 2011 at the Alamodome. A special jersey presentation is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Friday, December 10, 2010, at NX Level, W229 N1687 Westwood Drive, Waukesha, WI, 53186.

Schneider will play center for the 7th-grade, West team. In the past year, he was a Chicago Football University Offensive line Top Gun nominee, as well as a Madison Football University Defensive line Top Gun Nominee. The Muskego Middle Schooler is a two-time league all-star who began playing football at the age of seven and is also active in shot put and discus, qualifying for the Junior Olympics.

Pitting the nation’s top 7th and 8th graders against one another in an all-star format, the Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl brings together the top youth talent in the nation. This year, the bowl returns to the Alamodome in San Antonio on Sunday, January 9, 2011, and will once again be webcasted live on www.footballuniversity.org and www.allamericangames.tv .

The Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl consists of three East vs. West all-star games, one for the top 40 7th graders with a 175-pound limit, one for the top 40 8th graders with a 185-pound limit and a third game featuring the top 40 8th graders with no weight limit. New this year will be a fourth game—the USA-Canada Youth Bowl. The 8th-grade, no weight-limit game will be nationally televised.

Last year, many of the top players in the bowl received college interest and national attention from media outlets such as USA Today, Sports Illustrated and the New York Times. Last year’s game was also the unveiling of YouTube sensation Sony Michel who ran away with MVP honors after a four-touchdown, 275-yard performance.

The Bowl week consists of practices, a skills competition, and break-out sessions with Hall of Famers, as well as current and former NFL stars and celebrities such as legendary high school football coach Herman Boone. The Youth All-Americans will have VIP access to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and will also be honored during the game on Saturday, January 8, 2011.

Several thousand youth all-stars were nominated for this elite honor. Athletes had to fill out a nomination form and submit a highlight tape. The selection committee, which consists of Football University’s regional directors and scouts, work year round with hundreds of local youth football coaches and commissioners who help identify top athletes.
