The Stars of the 3013 Burning Sands are at the top HS in the DMV right now! The Stars of the 3013 Burning Sands are at the top HS in the DMV right now!

How do I maximize my exposure to Top High School Coaches and Scouting Services? How do I maximize my chance to make one of the Grassroots Post Season All Star Teams?

The answer is the Burning Sands Invitational III

It doesn’t get any better than this for youth football players!!!!!

The Burning Sands is High School Showcase Event for middle school prospects. Our Fall League participants have the benefit of auditioning for us, the top HS Coaches in the DMV, and the top Scouting Services in the country every weekend during Grassroots games.  In an effort to give a fair shot to those kids who are playing in other leagues, the Burning Sands has been expanded.  All of the top public and private school coaches in the DMV will be on hand at this event and they will be looking for the next crop of talent to fit their program needs.  The question is, will you be there to get noticed?.

In addition to exposure to the top HS coaches in the DMV, this is additional look for the FBU Teams State All Star Teams.  This is NOT an official FBU Tryout, but we are always scouting for talent for our MD State Teams.  This is a prelude to the FBU National Championship Team MD tryouts coming on Oct 12th

This is the only official tryout Youth Crab Bowls that will be truly spectacular this winter. The format will be expanded to include two rounds of play (Saturday and Sunday) and a chance for each grade to compete for a regional championship on Sunday covered by SEN Television. Highlights of the Championship Games will be shown Christmas Day on Comcast Sports at halftime of the HS Crab Bowl, which will be aired on tape delay.

From a scouting and exposure standpoint, the Burning Sands is unmatched.  For those of you not familiar yet with the FBU I350 program, you will learn all about it at this event put yourself in position to be ranked by FBU as one of the top 250 middle school athletes in the DMV.  The top nationwide HS scouting services like Rivals.com, SigningDay, and SEN will be on hand to capture all the action, rank the athletes, and provide unprecedented national exposure.  

Don't miss it.  Space will be limited, so sign up before spots run out!
