Sellers believes that the BFS Training program was the #1 factor that enabled him to make The All-American Football Team. The bowl game, which recognizes 7th and 8th grade Football talent, celebrates the best athletes from this age group on and off the field. The Diamond Bowl received 7,000 applications this year to select from. This year’s game will be held on the beautiful campus of Campo Verde High School on December 30th, 2010.
Unique to this game, the Diamond Bowl recruits and recognizes players for both their talent in making plays, and for academics. All athletes, including Sellers, are students who hold at least a 3.2 G.P.A. or an equivalent grade. The national selection committee for the bowl includes former NFL players and talent scouts, who evaluate the players on game tape or at one of Junior Rank's national and regional combines . All players are also required to provide an academic transcript.
According to Junior Rank Founder and CEO, Shaon Berry, this unique standard makes the Diamond Bowl much more than football but a way to highlight the best scholar athletes from across the nation. Berry himself played college football as Pitt, lettering for two years in the Big East program’s backfield before going to the Ivy League for graduate school, getting his Masters from Cornell’s Business School.
“We are excited and pleased by the class of young athletes who are going to be a part of the Diamond Bowl. They represent star caliber on the field, but also true excellence off the field,” Berry said.
Nick Sellers and all the Diamond Bowl participants will be part of an impressive bowl week in Tempe. On December 29th, Junior Rank will host the first Elite High School Underclassmen Showcase, the first time that freshmen through seniors will be tested and evaluated on a national level - in conjunction with famed talent scout Tom Lemming, made famous in the movie Blindside for discovering Michael Other. Two days later on December 31st, Junior Rank will host the Junior Rank Sports National Youth Combine, to test and evaluate middle school talent.
