Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl
Thank you to the talented athletes who submitted highlight DVDs for the 2012 games. The committee reviewed thousands of nominations and selected less then 50 players per game. FBU's ultimate goal is to train you in technique because technique plus talent beats talent alone. Stay motivated and keep working hard.
2013 Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl Rosters
Congratulations to all of our Eastbay Youth All Americans!
For the past three years, the nation’s top 7th and 8th graders have joined in the activities of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl to compete in the Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl.
The Eastbay Youth All American Bowl already has become the most important youth football all-star event in the country, and it was recently the focus of the nationally-syndicated sports show, “Sports Stars of Tomorrow.” Many of the top players in the Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl have already received college interest and national attention from media outlets such as USA Today, Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, the Seattle Times and the Los Angeles Times.
Some notable former Eastbay Youth All-Americans include Christian McCaffrey, son of former Denver Bronco Ed McCaffrey; Ray Lewis, Jr., son of the NFL’s Ray Lewis; 2013 Rivals top recruit Tyrone Swoopes, and the record breaking rushing performance by 2014 running back Sony Michel.
In January 2012, the Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl consisted of four games: an East vs. West 7th grade game; East vs. West 8th grade game; East vs. West no-weight limit 8th grade game; and the USA vs. Canada Bowl. The games are played in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, the same field that the U.S. Army All-Americans play on one day before. The Youth Bowls are webcasted live on www.footballuniversity.org and www.allamericangames.tv.
Prior to gameday, the Eastbay Youth All-Americans' week consists of practices, a skills competition, and break-out sessions with Hall of Famers, as well as current and former NFL stars and celebrities such as legendary high school football coach Herman Boone. The Youth All-Americans also join the high school U.S. Army All-Americans for the Kickoff Party and are honored during the playing of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Several thousand youth all-stars are nominated each year for this elite honor. Athletes have to fill out a nomination form and submit a highlight tape on Eastbay.com. The selection committee, which consists of Football University’s regional directors and scouts, work year-round with hundreds of local youth football coaches and commissioners who help identify top athletes.

"Sports Stars of Tomorrow," a nationally-syndicated sports television show about high school and college athletics, hosted by legendary broadcaster Pat Summerall, takes its viewers across the country in search of the brightest young stars in sports. They produced an entire show about the 2011 Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl. Watch it now:
