A local seventh grader has been selected to play in a National football tournament to represent Iowa.

Ryan Reighard will be playing in Football University’s 2nd National Championship Tournament this Saturday.

The team has a try out, and out of 12,000 kids who tryout all over the country, 6,000 were selected, including just 32 for the Iowa team.

Reighard and the Iowa team play at 4:00 P.M. this Saturday in West Des Moines at Valley Stadium against team Wisconsin, and on Sunday will play Minnesota, and if victorious in both rounds, could play in Kansas City, Mo. or Cincinnati, Ohio.
