MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL REPORT TOP 45

HERE IS MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL’S REPORT TAKE ON ALL THAT IS GOING WITH MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL / SEMI PRO FOOTBALL AND DIFFERENT NATIONAL CHAMPIONS THAT ARE BEING CROWNED IN MULTIPLE EVENTS IN THE USA. IT HAS LONG BEEN KNOWN THAT MARTIN LUTHER KING WEEKEND IS THE TIME WHEN TEAMS TRAVEL TO FLORIDA TO PURSUE THEIR GOAL OF ACHIEVING A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. WHETHER THEY WON THEIR LEAGUE OR WERE JUST COMPETITIVELY QUALIFIED THEY ARE GIVEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOAL OF BECOMING NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. NO REAL QUALIFYING REGIONAL TYPE QUALIFICATION REQUIRED, JUST WIN YOUR LEAGUE OR BE A RUNNER UP AND WE CAN GUARANTEE YOU THE OPPORTUINITY TO PLAY AS LONG AS YOUR TEAM IS WILLING TO PAY AS MUCH AS $800 TO CONFIRM PARTICIPATION TO ASSIST WITH COSTS OF STADIUMS AND OFFICIALS BEFORE THE TRAVEL AND ROOM AND BOARD ARRANGEMENTS ARE CONFIRMED AND THOSE COSTS CAN BE CONSIDERABLY HIGH. THE TOURNAMENTS IN FLORIDA HAVE IN THE MAJORITY OF CASES LEANED TOWARD EASTERN TO MID USA TEAMS TO PLAY FOR THOSE CHAMPIONSHIPS WITHOUT EXTENDING VIABLE INVITATIONS TO ANY OF THE MID USA TO THE WESTERN TIER TEAMS. TEXAS HAS PARTICIPATED IN A FEW OF THOSE BUT RARELY ANY TEAMS BEYOND TEXAS. THE LANDSCAPE OF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING. THE MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL REPORT HAS ITS OPINION AS WELL, OF ITS NATIONAL CHAMPION. MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL REPORT CHALLENGES TEAMS FROM THROUGH OUT THE USA TO PARTICIPATE IN EAST MEETS WEST TYPE GAMES AS IT FORGES AHEAD IN SEARCH OF A TRUE USA MINOR LEAGUE FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPION. INVITATIONS ARE EXTENDED TO TEAMS FROM THE WEST COAST TO THE EAST COAST WITH TEAMS. TRAVEL COSTS AND ARRANGEMENTS ARE THE DETERMINING FACTOR IN MOST CASES.
