Placer Hosting Football University This Week
2 Dec, 2016
Placer Valley Tourism is thrilled to have been selected to host the Football University (FBU) National Championship West region that will take place on Dec. 2-5. There are 24 all-star youth teams competing from 6th, 7th and 8th grade that will take to the fields in hopes of advancing onto the National Championships on Dec. 17 in Naples, Florida.
Teams from San Diego, the Central Valley, the Bay Area, Sacramento, Nevada, Oregon and Washington are slated to compete over the course of this four-day regional championship and the games will be played at Rocklin High School and Mahany Park All-Weather Field.
The Path to Naples is the theme of this year's FBU National Championship and stand-out youth football players from coast to coast will be vying to reach that path. The first three rounds will take place across four regional locales - Midwest, West, South and East with 192 teams total battling it out.
"We are thrilled Placer Valley is the West Region host," commented Douglas Berman, Chairman of All American Games (AAG), the organization that owns and produces the FBU National Championships. "We know that our youth athletes and their families will have an amazing time there, and the facilities and venues available are world-class."
