Generation Nexxt Continues to bring you Nexxt Level National Coverage. This time we are doing the Midwest Swing showcasing two of the top 8th grade 14U Teams in the Nation! These two Missouri Giants will battle it out center stage for state supremacy, Bragging rights, Rankings, and more.. The Christian Eagles out of the Gateway Youth Football League, and the Mathews Dickey Boys and Girls Club Bull Dogs.
They will have to put their entire league on their backs in this one. As the Christian Eagles Play in the Competitive Gateway Youth Football League, that stretches through Southeast and central Missouri, a league that also has a nationally Ranked 12U team in the Ofallon Renegades.
The Mathews Dickey Bulldogs Play in the North County Champions League, Which is usually home to the best 7th , and 8th grade teams in the area. a premier middle school / Transitional League in the country.
The Christian Eagles lead by Head coach Mike McMullen have been on our radars since last season, they have a great group of kids and they play sound Football, With a mature and uptempo passing attack, the Eagles can score quickly. Quarterback Kaden McMullen can put the ball anywhere he wants, and can eat defenses alive. Keijuan Howard is the Freak of the team a kid who is physically recruitable right now! he must be accounted for on every down. Amar Johnson can carry the load, he is a total package in the backfield with his ability to shed tackles, and make people miss in small spaces. Amar has shown he is a threat running or catching out of the backfield. he will be one to watch for in this one.
The Mathews - Dickey Bulldogs come in with the element of surprise on their side, the world doesn't know much about Coach Corey White and his bulldogs. all we know is they have been kicking but's and takings names for years, they are know to be very aggressive on both sides of the ball, employing a smash mouth concept. I think Coach Corey is just fine with flying under the radar for now, as the world will get a heavy dose on August 27th.
This game is very unpredictable as both of these teams come in to their first Full speed action. Both teams are prepared for this, these leagues have never really lined up against each other, the close quarters, the diverse backgrounds, and the hype surrounding it, adds many elements that will shake up the outcome..
