We are Maryland’s team and proud to represent the state in the 2019 Football University National Championships in Naples, FL. 


The 2019 FBU National Championship is set to roll south to sunny Naples, Florida this December!  The #PathToNaples begins in December at eight super regionals, and concludes in football paradise with the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals in Naples. Out of the 32 teams who are about to begin their journeys across 8 different regions of the USA, only 8 will advance to FBU Championship Week in Naples. These teams - eight from each bracket (6th, 7th and 8th grade) - will have the chance to prove that they are among the best in the tournament and be crowned National Champions.

Safety of the athletes that participate in our tournament is paramount above and beyond all else: current age and grade rule ensures a level playing field and enhances safety. This rule addresses the number #1 concern from parents and coaches regarding the potential for older athletes playing against much younger athletes and vice versa. This goes against safety and establishing a level playing field for all athletes.
Unfortunately this rule will exclude a small # of aspiring and former National Championship players but improving the safety and equality of the National Championship tournament cannot be overlooked.

  • Eligible football players must be in either grade 6, 7, or 8 during the 2019-2020 school year.
