Unveiling the Season: SMSB Football Academy Announces First Roster


We are pleased to announce that the Sound Mind Sound Body (SMSB) Football Academy is now back in action and fully equipped to take on the challenges of the athletic, life skill, and academic season. As we approach our 20th anniversary, we are proud to offer America’s best football program for free, thanks to the support of our esteemed partners and sponsors. 

Our offseason program is designed to provide extensive support to selected scholar-athletes through athletic training, 7v7, mentoring, college visits, camps, recruiting, life skills, parent seminars, and SAT Prep. We are proud to offer a comprehensive schedule for the upcoming season, which includes listings of our PSAT exam this weekend at Detroit Country Day and our highly anticipated National Invitational on December 26-27.
