Stand up Philly!!!

Odds are, you've seen the USILA All-American team and other All-whatever teams. All-Name, All-Flow, All-Italian, and I could go on.

But, there hasn't been an All-Philly Area team yet. And that's where we come in.

We will honor the best of the best that reside from the best area in the USA with our first ever All-Philly Area Teams. We consider the Philly area to be Southeastern PA up to Allentown and east of Chester county, as well as South Jersey from Trenton on down, and Delaware's New Castle county.
