History of Team Maryland in the FBU National Championship Tournament

In order to gain respect nationally and turn the DMV into a Nationally respected Football HOTBED, we must take State All Star Teams and play against State All Star Teams from North Carolina, from Georgia, form Florida, from Louisiana, from Texas, etc.  We are off to an amazing start, but we still have work to do.

We must have a platform to compete against those teams and WE MUST WIN!  The platform must be a respected platform and when we participate in that platform, play against those state All Star Teams with the best that the DMV has to offer, we will begin to CHANGE EVERYTHING!!!  We have already started the process. As we change perception the colleges will Notice and MORE scholarship offers will come to the DMV when we become that Nationally respected Football Hotbed.

Football University is the ONLY National Platform that provides an opportunity for us to change our perception. They own the US Army All American Game which has the top 4 and 5 Star HS athletes each year that have committed to the top Colleges.  College Programs follow the US Army Game and they Follow FBU because both properties are owned by the same parent company, All American Games (AAG).  

AAG created FBU to find the next group of elite middle school athletes that will one day have a chance to play in the US Army Game.  The connection between FBU and Major Colleges is purely undeniable.  FBU is critical to our overall objective, which is to maximize our athletes chances to compete for a college scholarship.  If you are not interested in playing college football, this is probably NOT the tournament for you and there are other opportunities that we can refer you to.

If you are not convinced yet and still need even more information to make your decision, here is more.....

FBU's National Championship Tournament at the 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade division is like the Little League World Series of youth football. NOTHING CAN COMPARE to it.  In 2012, our 7th Graders followed my lead and obliterated Central Virginia, Eastern Carolina, Chicago, Massachusetts, South Florida, and NE Louisiana on the way to the 7th Grade National Championship in 2012.  It was not about winning a ring.  It was about revolutionizing a State guys and earning National Respect, which in turn will increase scholarship offers for this region.

In 2016, our 8th Graders kicked the door in by obliterating the competition and winning 5 games in a row en route to a 41 to 14 thrashing of Team Seattle in the National Championship Game and we finished the mission.  One Championship at 7th Grade and one at 8th Grade in 4 years is pretty special.  We  have had more Final Four Teams than any region in the history of the FBU National Championship, but it is NOT enough!!!

That is how serious this is for us at Grassroots.  If we are going to be successful in changing the entire paradigm and perception about our region as a football power, which will in turn, manifest itself with more scholarship offers to our region, your child will have a better chance at earning one when he graduates.  You need for this to happen and we are the ones to make it happen.  For the last 5 years we put formidable teams together at all 3 age groups.  We are expecting to come back with National Championships at 7th and 8th Grade this year.  

The cool thing is that the GYFL League has 3 options for you to consider that are all tied to and run by GYFL organizations.  You will begin to see promos for Team Metro Maryland and Team Northern Virginia soon.  But, this promo is for Team Maryland, the reigning National Champions.

As a region, when we begin to dominate the FBU Tournament at every level and win Championships in front of 200,000 viewers on the internet, along with the powerful marketing and promotion campaign of FBU, college coaches will look at us differently all over the country.  High School football coaches from all over will understand that the youth football leagues in the DMV are putting out monsters that are a force to be reckoned with.  The game will continue to change!!!

As more an more of them matriculate to college and dominate, you will see our average number of scholarship offers increase each and every year.  This is the mission that we are on at Grassroots and we are succeeding.  Check out the Grassroots Track Record if you need more proof.

No single event or showcase is more important to the machine than the FBU National Championship Tournament.
