Future Games Spotlight: OF Damon Fountain



Trey Sofio
Louisiana Scouting Director

The annual PBR Future Games is fast-approaching; as the country’s top uncommitted underclassmen will descend upon Grand Park in Indianapolis, IN August 2nd through August 5th. 

It’s the seventh edition of the prestigious event, and it has become the premier event in the country for recruiters and underclass prospects alike. The Future Games started with just four teams, but will have 20 this year, with 400 players coming from the states in PBR’s comprehensive coverage area.

Players receive exposure unlike any other event for underclassmen. Last year, more than 150 colleges from all over the country were in attendance, including coaches from every Division I power conference in the nation.
