Maryland Crab Bowl and Youth All Star Teams

Maryland's only statewide high school football all star game. The game will feature the best High School Senior all stars from public and private schools in the state of Maryland.
 
The Game will consist of 90 players split on 2 different regional teams. The Washington regional team will consist of players from Montgomery, Prince George's, Anne Arundel, Calvert, St.Mary's, Charles counties, and the Eastern Shore. The Baltimore regional teams will consist of players from Howard, Baltimore County, Baltimore City. Frederick, Washington, Allegheny, Cecil, Harford, Carroll, and Garrett.
 
There will also be a series of Youth Crab Bowl Games.  Grassroots has officially partnered with the Crab Bowl organizers to select players and coaches to fill the 3 different age groups for this game.  We will select 35 6th Graders, 35 7th Graders, and 35 8th Graders from the Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western parts of the DMV.  That is a total of 12 teams competing.  That will be a total of 140 at each grade level and a grand total of 420 players participating.
 
We are very excited to build the youth Crab Bowl to the same level as the High School game.  What we love so much about the Crab Bowl is that it will be played right here at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD.  That will allow all of the local public and private high school coaches to see these kids up close and evaluate them in an All Star setting.  As much as we enjoy the travel of FBU, very few if any of the local high school coaches are going to be traveling with us.  This is a great opportunity for players who are good, but may not be deep on the radar yet, to really get some good exposure in the heart of the recruiting season.
 
The Army National Guard High School Crab Bowl is in its 7th year and has alumni that include Tavon Austin (WVU/ St. Louis Rams), Jelani Jenkins (Florida, Miami Dolphins), Kyle Fuller (Va Tech, Chicago Bears), Ego Ferguson (LSU, Chicago Bears), 5 other NFL players, and over 450 college football players. Rivals, Scout and 247 Sports considered the Crab Bowl the top in-state all-star game in the country. The youth games will be held on the 3rd Saturday and Sunday in December, 2014 at McDaniel College. The HS Game will be played on Sunday.
 
This is all brought to you by Tony Kennedy of the Mid Atlantic Sports Foundation.  To learn more about what they do and offer visit www.midatlanticsportsfoudation.org.  
 
We are also excited about this partnership because it will allow our alums to have an opportunity to play in an elite level HS All Star Game.  Of course we are locked in heavy with the US Army All American Game, as well as the Under Armour All American HS Game.  But, we understand that only a small percentage of our alums will be invited to those exclusive Nationally televised games.  The Crab Bowl allows for the masses of our HS alums to play in a next level game and get maximum exposure during the peak recruiting period for colleges.
 
The youth players will have an opportunity to audition for the Crab Bowl 3 different ways:
  • Playing in the GYFL Spring League
  • Playing in the GYFL Fall League
  • Attending the Burning Sands Invitational in October of 2014
  • Series of additional regional tryouts to be scheduled as needed
High School Alums had the opportunity to try out of for the HS game by attending one of the Crab Bowl Evaluation Camps in July of 2014.  You guys don't want to miss out on the Crab Bowl Experience.
 
The HS game will be shown on tape delay on Christmas morning this year on Comcast SportsNet!!!  At the most important period of the HS recruiting season, our middle school athletes will receive unprecedented exposure.  The top HS coaches will be on the sidelines of our games.

Please read the rest very carefully so that you understand the ongoing selection process from A to Z.
 
Official invitations began going out on Nov 1st and will continue to be emailed as selections are made.  Once you have received an official invitation letter, you must get to the website to secure your roster spot by paying your registration fees.  This is not a tournament where you can register without being officially selected to the team.  Your invite letter will give you specific instructions and until you receive it, you may NOT register.
  
The current registration fee between Nov 21st and Dec 1st the fee will be $125.00.  After Dec 1st, the fee will be $135.  You can only register after receiving the invitation letter.

We are referring to our tryouts as Evaluation/Tryout in an effort to avoid confusion between those players who are already confirmed with acceptance letters, with those who are still being evaluated for roster spots and received Next Phase letters.  We will evaluate the confirmed players for positions they will play on the roster, while others will be evaluated to determine IF they will make the man 35 man roster.  Those confirmed have already received their invitation letters and are being asked to come to the next evaluation session.  Others have received letters with instructions on the next phase of the process, which is to participate in an additional tryout session.
