The training is provided by the NFL's top coaches and players. Organizers of the team are the producers of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
McCoy participated in a tryout in August to earn the invitation to compete for the team. At Football University, he will be part of a 35-man team made up of teens from around the state of Georgia. The teams will participate in bracket play during the months of October and November. There are 192 teams nationwide across 16 regions of the country. Only 12 teams will advance to the FBU Championship to be played in Naples, Florida. Of the twelve teams, four will be selected from each age bracket. The teams will have to prove they are among the best in the country as they seek to advance in the single elimination tournament. The winning teams in each division will be FBU National Champions.
McCoy plays for Pepperell Middle School and is the starting nose guard on defense and right tackle on offense. The Dragons are undefeated in their quest for the team’s third straight middle school championship. This is not McCoy’s first invitation to an all-star program.
