In 2015, we successfully hosted our 1st annual Bay Area Cali Classic Senior Bowl, featuring players who were nominated by local coaches. The annual game honors graduating, senior class high school football players from the local area who have NOT received D1 scholarship offers. Our organization believes that the Bay Area is an under recruited market, leaving so much of our talent without opportunity. The mission and vision of our Bay Area Cali Classic game aligns perfectly with our motto, which is #CollegeBound. For nearly 3 years, our organizations, Break the Hudl and MBA Sports Recruiting, have helped to facilitate scholarship opportunities for nearly 40 student athletes from the Bay Area to attend Division I, II, III and NAIA institutions throughout the United States. After this first game, we celebrated 15 "full ride" offers for our student-athletes.
On Saturday, December 17th 2016, we hosted our 2nd annual game. The game featured seniors from the Class of 2017, recognizing the athletes for their talent both on AND off the field with awards like Game MVPs, Academic Achievement, Community Service and Leadership. Five student-athletes received scholarship offers from the game.
On December 23, 2017, we will host our 3rd annual game at El Cerrito High School, in El Cerrito, CA and are looking forward to doubling, even tripling our scholarship numbers. This showcase will be broadcast LIVE via the High School Sports Network (NFHS) and will be viewed by top recruiters, college scouts, coaches and local Bay Area media groups.
With your help and support, our student athletes can receive the recognition they deserve for their hard work and dedication. Our motto is not "D1 Bound" it's simply College Bound! Together we can help to make a local student athlete’s dream of a college education come true.
