Ninety-one (91) of the nation’s best middle school football players have been selected to the U.S. Under-14 Select Teams, which will compete in the 2016 International Bowl on Wednesday, Feb. 3, at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, in Arlington, Texas. Kickoff between the Under-14 Stars and Under-14 Stripes is 1 p.m. CT.

In all, four middle school-aged U.S. Select Teams will compete against each other in the seventh annual International Bowl series. Four U.S. National Teams and two high school Select Teams also will compete against teams from Canada as part of the series.

All U.S. National Teams are assembled and managed by USA Football, which is recognized as the sport’s national governing body by the U.S. Olympic Committee.

The U.S. Under-14 Select Team Stars are coached by JOE IRELAN, an assistant coach at the University of San Diego. Irelan has worked with receivers, defensive backs and special teams in two years with the Toreros. A former college wide receiver, he’s also coached at Ohio State and has been a U.S. National Team assistant for two years.

The head coach of the Under-14 Stripes is JOE DALE CARY, the head coach at Crandall (Texas) High School. After going 2-8 in his first season, the Pirates had a significant turnaround in 2015, finishing 6-5. Cary, who previously served as an offensive line coach at Port Neches-Groves (Texas) High School, is a longtime U.S. National Team coach.

U.S. rosters and coaching staffs are being announced throughout this month at Canadian rosters will be announced in early 2016.

To be eligible for the Under-14 Select Team, players must have been born on or after Jan. 1, 2002.
The games are a collaboration of the sport’s national governing bodies in each country – USA Football and Football Canada – featuring top student-athletes in middle school football’s greatest annual international competition.
