  • 4. Youth Football and college admission • Parents know that top-notch High School football players can get scholarships. But those are rare. • A more common and less known fact is that being both a good football player and a good student can get you admitted to many top colleges. • A good, not great, football player who is also a good student, will typically have his application rise to the top of the list of most Division III colleges he approaches. That list includes: MIT

  • 8. Why was the FCCFA created? The FCCFA was created with the goal of promoting to the City of Falls Church, participation in youth football and to develop a community connection with George Mason H.S. Football. George Mason High School Football is the most successful football program in the Falls Church/Arlington area over the last 13 years.  Under the present coaching staff, they have enjoyed consistent success.  A constant challenge, however, is the lack of a steady flow of players with prior youth football experience. With every new class the team has been starting at square one... ...we want to change that!
  • 9. The FCCFA’s Mission To teach the youth of Falls Church City a love for the game of football. To provide George Mason High School with a consistent group of prepared players.
  • 10. George Mason Football history: • From ’93 to ‘97 GMHS had won only 3 games —Since then, we’ve won 2 district championships —Made 3 Region B playoff appearances. • In the past 10 years GMHS has played: —Northern Region schools —WCAC schools —Group AA State Champion Broad Run —3 Group A Champions
  • 11. George Mason Football facts: • We field 30 Varsity and 30 JV players each year • We only have 12-15 players per grade to pull from • We are the smallest public school in NoVA to schedule and compete against larger schools with strong football traditions. • Our Group A competition comes from rural areas with strong youth football feeder programs dedicated solely to one high school
  • 12. George Mason Football future: • Success is tied directly to the number of players with youth football experience!
  • 13. Upcoming FCCFA Events Annual Events and One Time End of the Year Award Ceremony Nov • Saturday, November 7th 7 • Cafeteria Bar-b-que • Falls Church City Player of the year recognition - GMHS (scholarship & trophy) - McLean (trophy) - James Lee (trophy) - Vienna (trophy) Other events TBA ?
