Placer Valley Tourism is thrilled to announce it’s teaming up with All-American Games for the second straight year to bring the Football University Pacific Region West Championship games to Placer Valley. Twelve youth football teams will take the fields on Dec. 2-3 at Rocklin High in hopes of moving on to the National Championships in Naples, Fla., starting on Dec. 18.
All-American Games Operations Manager Joe Hale explained that this regional championship will showcase players from sixth, seventh and eighth grade. Four all-star teams from each grade level will compete with one champion from each grade. Teams will be traveling from Seattle, Columbia Basin and the Bay Area as well as Sacramento to compete.
“This is the last step before they go on to Naples and only three of the 12 teams competing will have a chance to play for the National Championship,” Hale said. “Last year from each grade level at the Pacific regionals it was the Seattle teams that advanced on to Naples, and the eighth grade game was one of the most talented finals of all-time.”
