Congrats to Team Seattle – FBU National Championship Runners Up
The kids played their hearts out. Both the 7th and 8th grade iterations of Team Seattle fought their way through the regional rounds in Sacramento, to earn berths in the San Antonio FBU National Championship semi finals.
The 8th grade team won their semi final round, and played in the Alamo Dome for the FBU National Championship. Unfortunately, they ran up against a fearsome Georgia team and weren’t able to rein supreme. In this case however, reaching the Dome is a pretty special victory in itself.
Team OR 6th graders that bested Team Seattle’s 6th graders also played their way through to the semi-final round in San Antonio, showing the country what kind of football is to be found in the northwest, far outside outside the friendly confines of Century Link Field. As with Team Seattle 7th graders, they didn’t get a chance to play in the Alamo Dome for the National Championship.
FBU National Championship Broadcast on ESPN
Team Seattle 8th graders may not have lived their dreams of winning the FBU National Championship, but many realized another, playing on a national stage. The game was streamed live on ESPN3, with plays called by national announcers, replete with slow motion highlights and all.
Congrats to all the kids, coaches and staff who worked so hard to make this road to the championship happen.
