Before moving on to college, the goal for many of the nation’s premier prospects in the Class of 2019 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, is lining up for one of the big games, each having taken place in the past an NFL facility: Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium, Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field and Oakland Raiders’ Coliseum.

Do well when given the opportunity in front of our NFL veteran coaching staff, then prospects are invited to another All-American Combine (Super Regional level), held at Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton (OH) and Washington Redskins’ Training Facility in Richmond (VA), to name a couple venues.
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, naturally the destination 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.
