The founders of FBU built several football platforms to showcase the nation’s top prep football players such as the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on NBC that has featured prep stars such as Reggie Bush and Vince Young as seniors and the U.S. Army National Combine that has featured Ted Ginn Jr. and Tim Tebow as prep underclassmen. Both events are featured in San Antonio every January. Over its eight year history, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has sent to over 65 athletes the NFL including: Adrian Peterson, Brady Quinn, Reggie Bush, and Vince Young. This past year, 27 alumni were drafted with 5 being selected in the first round. The all star event has been an accurate preview and showcase of tomorrow’s college and NFL stars.

The U.S. Army All-American Bowl features the top college bound seniors, while FBU was created to identify, instruct and announce the next generation of football stars from the ages of 7th grade to rising seniors in high school. Identifying these athletes before high school and training them through high school was a mission of FBU founders. The mission was that many of the nation’s top football players would arrive in San Antonio with their skills fully developed instead of discovering that their speed, strength and quickness was matched physically by many other elite athletes across the country. FBU founders believed that when 4.4 speed meets 4.4 speed and 300 lbs met 300 lbs, skill will be the difference maker. FBU’s mission is to teach this skill in small mini-camp settings utilizing former NFL instructors and players who have a passion to teach.

Many of FBU’s top instructors will once again be on loan to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl to work with our All-Americans and elite underclassmen and help them prepare for the Bowl and for future success.
