(NewsUSA) - A new national organization is providing a fun way for former football players to stay active and in the game.
American Football Alumni unites former high school, college and professional players and coaches so they can reconnect with old teammates and make new friends. But besides its extensive networking opportunities, the organization offers members information and support on how to use their football disciplines to further themselves personally, professionally and financially.
To date, there's been an overwhelming response to the organization because of the exciting tools that American Football Alumni offers. For example, members now have an outlet to share their opinions on timely football topics, such as what is right for college players and new sports rules that are being considered.
Members also can participate in exclusive, national college football polls. This brings together the broadest demographic of players and coaches to create what is believed to be not only the most accurate polls, but ones that truly represent the sport from those who know it best.
One of American Football Alumni's main goals is to recognize players of every skill level. Because society tends to only honor the big-star players, the organization makes sure all players are recognized as individuals who were important to their teams, our society and to football culture as a whole.
Uniting thousands of players from around the country, American Football Alumni will hold Football Fest 2006, which will be held July 6 to 9 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
The event will be an action-packed weekend with opportunities to mingle with former football greats, talk with big-name coaches, play golf, attend speaker luncheons, hear the latest on sports topics at seminars and participate in the awards dinner. Nowhere else will you be able to rub shoulders with so many football lovers under one roof.
Basic membership of American Football Alumni is free to all former players and coaches in the U.S. and Canada. For more information, visit www.americanfootballalumni.com.
