We just sent the 2015 class off to the college level and in youth football we are always looking towards the future. I have said over and over again right now the 2021 class has all the top talent right so far. That is only my opinion right now and it may change but Football Hotbed meets tons of kids all the time so I would consider our opinion on youth football as valid. With that being said I met a kid that has me looking at the 2025 Class.
He is 7 years old in the 2nd grade and his name is Champ! He literally ran through every team he faced at the Tiny Mite level for Rialto Pop Warner last year and he is only going to get better. You can find him on youtube and has many hits on his page showing his talent. Him and his father Ali Brown have been training since he was 4, and Champ was out there just following what his older cousins did and the rest is history. He is also the Nephew of Ground Zero (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) owner Anthony Brown so its apparent the apple does not fall far from the tree. He comes from a long bloodline of football players and he is having the time of his life. The best part about Champ is he is just playing because he loves it. He also enjoys his big breakfast every morning with egg whites, turkey bacon and a class of Ovaltine.
Champ is the reason Football Hotbed can’t ever get tired of youth football. He has a humble personality and enjoys being a kid that lives out his passions. When he is not on the football field he is a wrestler. Wrestling according to his dad helps him with leverage and being physical with use of his hands. Champ will be one of the youngest kids to participate in the Football Hotbed West Coast Regional Combine. I expect him to do well and be one of the top performers for his age group. Come out Saturday April 25 at Upland High School to see Champ and a host of other kids compete in the combine.
