ORLANDO, Fla., January 31, 2020 (Newswire.com) - The NFL championship game will be broadcast on FOX Sports this year on Sunday, Feb. 2. During FOX's game-time programming, FoxNews' #1 rated morning show Fox & Friends will be airing live on South Beach all week. As part of their set, a 40-foot field, elevated above the sand and overlooking the ocean, has been constructed on South Beach on Ocean Avenue.
Last week, a representative from FoxNews reached out to the East Orlando Predators (EOP) and requested that the undefeated 14U AAU National Championship team conduct a practice, in full pads and gear, during Fox & Friends' game-day Sunday show on February 2 from 6 a.m.-10 a.m. The 14U Preds will be practicing during the entirety of the nationally broadcast Fox & Friends program with various interviews from coaches and players conducted throughout the four-hour telecast. The team will end the televised portion of their practice huddled up in prayer.
"These kids gave it their all this season and we are honored to be able to represent Central Florida athletics this Sunday," says Shawn Seipler, President, East Orlando Preds. "As coaches, we do our best to instill a spirit of excellence in our youth and this is the grand finale to an unbelievable season. I couldn't be prouder."

The East Orlando Preds 14U football team, led by head coach Shawn Seipler, finished a great, undefeated season with their first-in-club history National Championship. The team's 38 roster battled several adversities throughout the 2019 season. Several times, the Preds fell behind at halftime and came together to overcome the odds, proving to the Preds that the toughest opponent is themselves and that, together, with faith, the impossible is made possible. The 14U East Orlando Preds closed out their 2019 season 17-0.
