Bryan Allen Academy Kickoff Classic

I’ll be attending Bryan Allen Academy’s Kickoff Classic for Week 1. Six 6-man games over the course of 3 days. If you’ve never attended one of the six-man Kickoff Classics, you should put it on your bucket list. These are always very fun events with a different atmosphere from a normal 11-man game.

Seven of the twelve teams are ranked in the top 10 in their respective division. And the second game on Friday night features two teams ranked 1st in their respective divisions. In total the twelve teams have won 8 state 6-man championships and appeared in 19 championship games.

All rankings are from sixmanfootball.com.

Simply put I am a fan of Texas high school football. I attend as many high school football games as I can - 82 games in 2017, 86 games in 2018, 76 games in 2019. I also have some limited computer skills and I use those to provide information to the #txhsfb community. I am always looking for new ways to provide information to the #txhsfb community. If you have ideas and suggestions, tag or DM me on Twitter.
