First off you are incorrect about 2A and 3A...  there were a number of teams in 2A that were ranked higher then the teams in 3A .In  fact the team that won  2A was ranked higher then Blazers. There have been recent DVHL teams that have actually WON  Nationals not just competed Genesis 16AA and 18AA come to mind about 10 yrs ago when it wasnt watered down. Hey Blazers have had a nice DVHL run last 3 yrs just havent been able to get over the hump and win the big one. They deserve all the credit for a 3 yr DVHL run but without a National Championship kind of diminishes things.

I guess out of bitrerness over the teams that have made it, there seems to be a lot of fake news about the difficulty of making Nationals back in the day compared to today. Hopefully it makes the poster feel better about himself to lie about natuonals to belittle the accomplishments of 14 to 18 year old kids.

2010 had 4 tiers 1a, 2a, 3a, 4a. Seems like it went to the current format in 2011. Same amount of teams in each bracket.

If Blazers 04 core can make it back to Nationals this coming season that would be three straight Nationals by same age core representing PA for USA Nationals....has that ever been done?
Quakers did it a few years ago. Were set to play in the district final for their 4 straight trip, but then covid happened

Back in the day goes back.more then 10 yrs ago. There was a point where Districts included the 2 best teams from DVHL and  from NJ...they competed in a round robin with winner going to Regionals competing against the other Eastern region district winners and winner went to Nationals where there were only 10 teams. Now to go to Nationals you just have to be the best team in your league as Blazers clearly were in the DVHL or just get invited. When you have 7 of 30 teams with losing records it tarnishes what Nationals should be about and that's the very best teams in the country competing against each other for 1 National Champion not 3.

Bottom line when you have a National Championship where a team that won 8 games out of 33 gets invited and them walks home with the National Champion Title as the 1A team did it totally diminishes what Nationals have become.

What is going on with the VF Minutemen 18AAA roster!!??  For a month on their website they've had every single other teams roster listed but 18U continues to say "Coming Soon"  what's going on there?

Agreed if you win Nationals at your age and level bracket there should only be one.  For example if you win 16UAA Nationals there should only be one team able to say that.  As it is there are three and that's messed up and it changes what "Nationals" means.  Are you trying to find a true National Champion or are you making it just another tournament so Timmy and his parents from a 7-37 team don't get butthurt when they lose 35-0 to an actual National Championship caliber team?

If a league keeps sending weak teams that get slaughtered year after year playing against actual top competition they should lose their automatic berths and have to play their way in.  If the best U18AA team Delaware can generate is 12-22-2 why is that worthy of being invited to that tournament? Because that's the way it's always been done?  There were HUNDREDS of better teams who were passed over so Delaware and the DVHL could keep that berth and it cheapens the entire meaning of a National Championship. What's crazy is three teams WORSE than them also made the tournament.

This isn't like college basketball either where you have Cinderella small schools as the 15 and 16 seeds.  Those teams actually have to win and win their conference tournaments to get in and sometimes they STILL get stuck playing the play-in game.  JBH and Ducks have to show up, put a letter on their team (half the time one or the other can't even do that) and beat the other one other. YAY! WE BEAT ONE TEAM! WE'RE GOING TO NATIONALS! Absolute clownshow.

Amen someone who gets it. There were a number of teams even worse than Delaware. They actually won 2 of their 3 games. They have cheapened Nationals to the point that it's become meaningless when once it was an honor to get there. 1 National Champion with the 16 best teams in the Country competing and you have to earn your way in.
