    The tryouts are for state-based all-star football teams. Come December, the athletes who make each team will be playing in the Football University (FBU) National Championship tournament. The tryouts are for athletes who will be in the 6th, 7th and 8th grade (class of 2022, 2021 and 2020) when they start up school in September. The FBU National Championship is described as "March Madness meets the Little League World Series." The national championship tournament is a single elimination tournament and goes throughout December with the championship taking place in Naples, Fl. the week before Christmas.

    The Writing:

    Please identify the top players in each grade (3-7 players), then write up an article recapping the tryout. Number can vary on turnout and athlete ability. Article should be about top performers from each grade level and what made them stand out. Looking for 2-3 sentences per player in order of most impressive to least.

    The Pictures:

    Using a cell phone, please get a picture of each athlete you feature. Waste up, looking right at your camera (phone). No hat, helmet or sunglasses. Please label each pic. Also get one landscape picture of all the athletes on the field all at once. Probably easiest to do this during warmups/stretching.

    The Pay:
    $50 per tryout. Each tryout will last around 3 hours. Very easy day at the office. Coaches will be more than helpful to you. Gas money is not given, please be local to the tryout

    **Please mention "Tryouts" in your subject line**
