Events Attract the Largest Group of High School and Youth Football Talent
Dublin, OH — The Dublin Convention & Visitors Bureau announced today that it has secured the 2013 Football University Top Gun Camp – an invitation-only camp attracting the top 1,500 prep and youth football players from across the United States. The event, which will be held at Jerome High School July 18-24, 2013, attracts attendees from across the United States, Canada and Europe and will generate an estimated 5,000 room nights – one of the largest events to ever been held in Dublin. Last year’s event was held in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Dublin will also be hosting Football University’s 2013 Ohio regional camp, which will be held at Dublin Scioto High School on June 7-9, 2013. The Bureau, the City of Dublin, Dublin City Schools and Nationwide Children’s Hospital Sports Medicine collaborated to attract both events to the City of Dublin.
“We are excited to select Dublin as the host of our Top Gun camps as well as our regional camp,” said Rich McGuinness, President and Founder of All American Games, a sports marketing company that owns and produces the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and Football University. “We were extremely impressed with the City’s facilities, passion and its past history of hosting world-class events.” Dublin was selected over numerous cities across the United States, according to McGuinness.
There will be two separate Top Gun Camps held in Dublin for high school and middle school athletes. Football University’s instructional faculty is made up of current and former National Football League coaches and athletes who will qualify and determine the invite list. Every year, FBU Top Gun promises to be the largest gathering and display of elite football players from across the nation in one location.
The Dublin Convention and Visitors Bureau led the effort with the City of Dublin and Dublin City Schools to host the events. “We are pleased that All American Games chose Dublin as the site for its upcoming Football University camps,” said Tim Lecklider, Dublin Mayor. “It will be exciting for the City of Dublin to host these prestigious events that will generate millions of dollars for the local economy while showcasing our great city to visitors from across the nation. We know from their experiences with the U.S. Army All American Bowl that All American Games executes unique, first class events.” The City of Dublin will also host international travelers from across the world for the Presidents Cup on October 1-6, 2013.
