The All American Bowl was founded in 1996 to give athletes the opportunity to compete against the best at their level in an all star game setting. In April of 1996, the first All American Bowl was played in Minnesota and has since been played at various cities across the country including Minneapolis, Dallas, Charleston, Atlanta, Miami, and Las Vegas. The All American Bowl also gives athletes the potential to be scouted by colleges and professional football teams.
The All American Bowl has several types of games for different levels of competition that include: DI, DII, DIII, JUCO, Minor League Football, Free Agent, and
High School. The participants in the All American Bowls have been nominated for their outstanding performances throughout their season, their accomplished career, love for the game, a chance to be noticed, and a last chance to play the game we all love!
Over 3000 athletes have participated in the All American Bowl since 1996.
