“All Football, All The Time”
Gridiron Football USA was created to showcase all of the high school, college and professional football teams across the nation. Gridiron Football is a media company first, promoting the positive aspects of football from players, coaches and teams. Secondly, Gridiron Football hosts camps, 7v7 Tournaments, the Gridiron Football All-American Bowl Game, and so much more. Since our beginning in 2014, we have helped more than 3,500 young men get the attention of college coaches and earn college football offers.
Why do we do what we do? At Gridiron Football USA we feel passionately about football and its ability to reshape people’s lives. Not only do exemplary football teams build up colleges and towns, but the right guidance from a good coach can drastically reshape a student’s way of thinking and life in general. More specifically our goals include: teaching athletes how to get to college, teaching athletes that there is more to playing football than meets the eye, and educating people about day-to-day actions on football teams. We believe in our motto, “Changing Lives, Improve Communities.”
