Wildcat Named to National Select Team

Richmond Hill High School defensive back Jake Jablonski has been selected to play on the 2017 U.S. Under-17 National Select Team at International Bowl VIII.  The U.S. Under-17 National Select Team will take on Team Saskatchewan Canada January 16th 2017 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Jablonski a sophomore defensive back for the Richmond Hill School Wildcats began his journey to earning his spot on the team last year after being selected to attend the USA Football National Development Games in Canton Ohio.  He returned to Ohio this year where his hard work, dedication, skill and all around character has provided him this opportunity.  USA football refers to the journey as "Earning your Stars".  With this achievement Jake has indeed completed the journey and has earned his stars.

U.S National Teams and Select Teams will participate in seven games across two days in the eighth annual event. The 2017 rendition of the international Bowl will mark the debut of Japan, which joins the United States and Canada.

The International Bowl is a collaboration between USA Football, Football Canada and the Japan American Football Association. All three governing bodies will assemble rosters comprised of top players and coaches in their respective countries. Football Canada is organizing teams from three provinces: Team Ontario, Team Alberta and Team Saskatchewan.

The 2017 International Bowl is a collaboration of the sport’s national governing bodies in each country – USA Football and Football Canada – featuring top student-athletes in football’s greatest annual international competition.  National Team alumni include RB TODD GURLEY (Georgia), QB KEVIN HOGAN (Stanford), DE STEPHON TUITT (Notre Dame), RB DAVID WILSON (N.Y. Giants/Virginia Tech) and QB JAMEIS WINSTON (Florida State).

USA Football and Football Canada are among the 64 national federations who are members of the International Federation of American Football (IFAF). IFAF’s member nations span six continental regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania and South America.

Team Breakdown

Moving forward our Varsity, JV and 9th grade structure and names have changed. Our teams will not be broken down by grade but by talent and experience. This will ensure that our players are getting experience against evenly matched talent. This concept is being embraced by all the teams in our region so that should make for a competitive season for all levels of play. Moving forward here's the breakdown of the new structure:

Varsity is synonymous with "A Team"

JV is now going to be called "B Team"

9th Grade is now going to be called "C Team"

These teams will be fluid throughout the upcoming season and players may dress for multiple teams. The schedule and calender will reflect these changes.

Equiment Order Form

Below is a link to a flyer for ordering Football Equiment including Cleats, Girdle, Socks and Gloves. If you need equiment for Spring Ball, please place your order asap. There will be another opportunity to order equiment over the summer.
