The Pro Day Pilgrimage

Updated: Mar 5, 2020

First of all, if you came to this post directly, WELCOME! Please take literally a minute to read about what we're building with Football Alliance and register on the FA launch home page! As if you need any more incentive, we'll be having random prize drawings and you'll get credit for people you recruit to the site!

So another crazy idea I’ve had for a few years, is to travel the country in an RV for an entire football season - from training camps in July to the draft in April - covering anything and everything football, from high school to the NFL, and also how football affects the culture of the different cities I travel to. For a “pilot” of sorts, I plan on going on a “Pro Day Pilgrimage,” a wild 20 (or more?) campus journey in my 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe over the next 5 weeks. I will blog my daily experiences, be sure to follow me on Twitter for updates!

If anyone would like to hang out along the way, provide a couch to crash on for a few hours, donate a few $$ for gas (yes, I’ll be driving!), or any help in any way, it would always be greatly appreciated! Venmo/CashApp footballiance

Any corporations that would be interested in sponsorships - I’m looking at you Fanatics, Body Armour, 5-hour energy, Emergen-C, Starbucks, Chipotle, Chick-fil-A, Hooters, Camping World, etc., let’s talk!
