The West Hartford eighth-grader is chosen to represent Team Connecticut in the National Championship.

West Hartford's Kyle Conlon has been selected as a member of Team Connecticut Northeast to participate in the Football University National Championship.

According to All American Games, and Football University (FBU), the FBU National Championship is a version of "Little League World Series meets March Madness."

Conlon will start as center for the Connecticut Northeast team.

The FBU National Championship kicks off Dec. 1 at various locations across America with the winners advancing in this single-elimination tournament that features 64 state-based teams. The first four rounds will take place at regional sites and the semifinals and championship will take place Jan. 5 and 6, respectively, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas as part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl week celebration. 

This year’s tournament will be the biggest youth football tournament ever put together, featuring an expansion to 64 teams nationwide, including more than 250 games, 6,000 athletes, and 1,200 coaches. The tournament will showcase 250 games through a four-week period, resulting in more than 1,000 hours of content.

All American Games will also produce a “Sports Center” style studio show, providing detailed, round-by-round updates and news, hosted by long-time national TV/radio announcer Neil Sika. All American Games executives are currently in discussions with numerous web and broadcast partners. With webcasts of each game along with the studio show, All-American Games plans to produce more than 350 hours of content. 

The FBU National Championship is produced by All American Games and its premier national training academy, Football University (FBU). The 7th-grade and 8th-grade teams are comprised of the top 35 all-star athletes from various regions throughout the United States, who tried-out to qualify for the 64 7th grade or 8th grade regional teams. Athletes were identified through FBU’s network of state tournament directors from more than 40 FBU camps in various U.S. cities, and through those nominated on the tournament’s page located at www.footballuniversity.org.
