USA Football’s 2010 Junior National Team Faces Top Global Competition on Jan. 30 in South Florida

(Vocus) January 28, 2010 -- USA Football, the sport’s national governing body on youth and amateur levels, announced today that the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine and Reebok have joined the list of partners for USA Football’s “Team USA vs. The World” game, presented by Riddell, in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., on Saturday, Jan. 30, at 12 p.m. ET.

The game will be televised live by NFL Network.

USA Football’s 2010 Junior National Team – 45 of the country’s top high school seniors – will face a World Select team composed of the best players aged 19 and under from outside the United States spanning eight countries on four continents. Showcasing the world’s top high school-aged players from across the globe, the Jan. 30 contest will follow AFC and NFC All-Star practices at Lockhart Stadium. Admission to the NFL All-Star practices and “Team USA vs. The World” game is free of charge.

The Andrews Institute, USA Football’s official sports medicine provider, will supply athletic training and medical care for USA Football’s Junior National Team and the World Team during this week’s practices and Saturday’s game. A world-class institute for orthopaedics and sports medicine in Pensacola, Fla., the Institute opened its doors in 2007. Renowned orthopedic surgeon and Andrews Institute founder Dr. James Andrews will serve both teams on the sideline on gameday.

Reebok is a global brand in the sporting goods and apparel industry, manufacturing and marketing sports, fitness and lifestyle products. The company will provide cleats and footwear for the game’s players, coaches and officials. Reebok’s addition to the list of supporters marks the first time that the NFL partner has teamed up with USA Football.

"The Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Pensacola, Florida is proud to be the official sports medicine provider for USA Football," says Dr. James R. Andrews. "Our mission compliments the efforts of USA Football to educate coaches, parents and athletes on safety and injury prevention. We are proud to support the Team USA vs. The World game and look forward to providing this same service at future events."

The head coach of USA Football’s team is Chris Merritt, head coach of Miami Christopher Columbus High School. Merritt was the 2009 USA Football Junior National Team’s defensive backs coach that earned a gold medal in Canton, Ohio, this past July in the eight-nation International Federation of American Football (IFAF) Junior World Championship.

Jan Jenmert, head coach of Sweden’s junior national football team, is the head coach of the 45-man “World” roster.

Delivering NFL Network game commentary for the multi-national noon ET kickoff on Jan. 30 will be Rich Eisen, Deion Sanders, and Scott Kennedy. Sideline reporter Stacey Dales will contribute on-field insight.

USA Football’s “Team USA vs. The World” game, presented by Riddell, is also supported by numerous USA Football corporate partners, including GameWear Team Sports, Shock Doctor, Gatorade, and Cutters.
