This past weekend in Portland, Barton Football kicked off it’s 4th straight season of Winter elite events. BFA will once again be representing the Northwest in Las Vegas at the Pylon Sports 7 on 7 National tournament (February 28/March 1). Pylon has also brought back the lineman challenge which was a big success last year.
Initial selections were made for the Oregon/SW Washington team as early indications have this being a special group. Four of the first seven picks already hold D1 offers, and there are some very talented kids that will still be added.
The team will be decided by February 2nd, so the next few weeks of elite events will be important for any athlete looking to participate. Congrats to the talented group already selected. We will be making announcements each weekend through the month of January.

Elijah Molden 5-11 175 Cornerback/Athlete 2017′ West Linn, OR
Molden is considered one of the top players in the nation for the 2017 class. He will be an offensive and defensive player of the year favorite within the state next season.

Rey Green 5-11 195 RB/Safety 2016′ Evergreen WA
Green has an offer from Montana St and projects as a potential double digit D1 offer kid. He will get the ball early and often for Don Johnson’s Plainsmen next season, and should be considered one of top 3 backs in Washington for 2016.
