Registration for tryout camps is now open for the 2019 Future Stars Game (FSG), which is arguably one of the most competitive youth football showcases in America. The games will feature the top athletes from Georgia and Florida, as well as Ohio and Michigan, which always make for an entertaining and exciting event. This summer, there will be the ninth annual Georgia-Florida game (June 12-15) and the third annual Michigan-Ohio game (June 26-29), with games for grades sixth through eighth. The first game was a Florida-Georgia matchup that took place in 2011 in Atlanta, and the event has seen a rising increase in interest and the quality of play.
“The popularity and talent level have increased exponentially,” said Valister Wilson, president of Future Stars Game. “We’re excited to see that level of talent at that age.”
The talent of the players has certainly been noticed by college programs. Over the past three years, there have been more than 80 college commitments for FSG alumni each year, with 83 and counting in 2019. You can check out the list here.
“[It shows] the level of talent that’s in the game,” noted Wilson.
During the days leading up to the games, FSG staff and coaches prepare the highly skilled youth players for high school competition and provide them the tools to make informed decisions regarding their academic and athletic futures beyond the high school level. The players will also take part in off-the field-development workshops and two-a-day practices.
