The National High School Football Hall of Fame was founded in 2010 by LaMont "ShowBoat" Robinson, a basketball legend and entrepreneur. The mission is to preserve the history and honor of high school football players, coaches, and contributors. The National High School Football Hall of Fame Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization.


The National High School Football Hall of Fame is dedicated to honoring the legacy of exceptional athletes, coaches, and contributors in high school football. Our purpose is to not only celebrate their achievements but also to foster the growth of young talent and inspire the next generation. Through mentorship and educational programs, trade shows, film festivals, camps, 7-on-7 national championships, an enshrinement ceremony, and a charity golf tournament, we aim to create a comprehensive platform that enriches lives, promotes sportsmanship, and perpetuates the spirit of the game. 


The mission of the National High School Football Hall of Fame Foundation is to inspire, educate, and empower youth aged 8–18 through comprehensive programs that promote physical and mental well-being, explore the rich history of sports, harness the potential of technology, and provide valuable resources for parents navigating the evolving landscape of youth sports. We aim to foster a love of the game while instilling important life skills and values. Through regional 7-on-7 football tournaments culminating in a prestigious national championship held at the Hall of Fame Village in Canton, Ohio, we strive to create an inclusive and competitive environment that celebrates athletic excellence and promotes personal growth. Together, we envision a future where young athletes thrive both on and off the field.
