PURPOSE

The Orange Bowl’s mission and vision is to promote and serve South Florida in order to inspire youth, engage the community and enhance the economy. The Orange Bowl Florida High School Football Showcase meets that mission and vision by providing an opportunity for young student-athletes to use their football and academic skills to attend college and ultimately earn a degree. This effectively has the profound effect of changing young peoples' lives.

EVENT OVERVIEW

The Orange Bowl Florida High School Football Showcase is a FREE one day event, in association with the National Football Foundation (NFF) and its local chapters, that will bring together Florida high school seniors and educational institutions in Division II, III, and NAIA programs from across the country.
