Why This Was Created?  

Because...

Youth football teams deserve a credible national championship event from a professional organization and the support from football icons, in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and it’s extended family.

Every day the debate rages on which teams are the best from across the country despite top teams rarely playing each other in real game competition.

Youth football deserves a world class character development program authored by the very best in football to help young boys become great men.
