January 11, 2018 GMT

LEOMINSTER -- A pair of Leominster American Youth Football players have earned a place on the national stage.

Joey Pallotta and Colin LeBlanc have been selected to play on the USA Under-15 football teams in the International Bowl IX at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, on Wednesday, Jan. 17, in Arlington, Texas. The games will be streamed live on ESPN3.

The two Leominster stars were standouts on the Leominster AYF eighth-grade football team, which recently placed third at the national championship tournament in Florida.

Nearly 10,000 athletes participated in USA Football’s Regional Development Camps and National Development games this past year, with only the best of the best being selected to move on.
