Before moving on to college, the goal for many of the nation’s premier prospects in the Class of 2018 is simple, yet not necessarily easy to attain: Receive an all-important invite to the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl and compete against the best of the best from all over the country.
The reward, naturally in most cases, is lining up for one of the big games, each taking place in an NFL facility: Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium, Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field and Oakland Raiders’ Coliseum.
The journey for many recruits, including underclassmen hoping for national exposure, starts by attending an All-American Combine (Regional level). For a list of upcoming events, click on this link. For prospects who want to register online for a nationwide workout, click on this link.
Do well then, that is, when given the opportunity in front of our NFL veteran coaching staff and prospects are invited to another All-American Combine (Super Regional level). Those workouts are held at several locations, perhaps most notably being the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton (OH).
Shortly thereafter, the Blue-Grey Football Selection Committee takes over and chooses players for the All-American Bowl based on their respective efforts during the combine circuit. We’d be remiss without noting that the games will once again be nationally broadcast on the ESPN family of networks.
For many recruits, the destination thereafter is the NCAA Division I ranks. For a select few, given a decorated track record of evaluating talent at the next level, NFL is the end game. Plain and simple, that’s the information needed to successfully negotiate the path to the brand’s All-American Bowl.
