Team Georgia, a 6th grade all star football team made up of mostly Cobb County students (along w a few from Paulding, Bartow, and Douglas), has swept through the South to win the Regional Championship put on by Football University (FBU).
They are headed to the Final Four in San Antonio on Jan 3-5 with hopes of making history and winning the first ever FBU 6th grade National Championship. FBU, Eastbay, and several others are sponsoring the event. FBU is the creator of the Army All American Bowl (high school all star game).
These youth have practice in inclement weather and spent the past month battling teams from Gulf Coast FL, Nashville, South Florida, and the Gwinnett County All Stars. They have out scored their opponents 120-18 and have illustrated the intense level of football that Cobb County and the rest of North GA has to offer. This team plays out of Kennesaw Mountain High School.
On the FBU website video news, they have gone from being called “that little team outta Cobb Co” to being picked by several (including the FBU commissioner) to win it all. They will face Maryland….then the winner of Oregon / Texas game. We wish them luck. You have made Cobb County proud by making the Final Four.
