July 30th - August 3rd, 2017
Northwest University in Kirkland


The Rough Diamonds Athletic Foundation is looking to reward Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho) student-athletes for the work they have already put in on and off the playing field (Recognition).  The Northwest has produced some great talent and a lot of our student-athletes go unnoticed. We will have put the best talent from the Northwest on every media outlet for High School Football in America (Exposure).  To be the best you have to compete against the best and the Northwest 9 will provide that (Competition).

The main Northwest 9 event will take place from July 30th to August 3rd on the campus of Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington. The athletes will be housed in the dorms, fed meals and given various Northwest 9 apparel.

Our selection committee will choose the top 35 quarterbacks from Washington, Oregon and Idaho to compete against each other to see who will become the Northwest 9.

The athletes will compete in various events, including, but not limited to testing, positional drills, one-on-one and 7-on-7. Each day the selection committee and coaching staff will rank the athletes, with the top nine athletes from the final rankings making our inaugural Northwest 9.
