The team was chosen by a five-person committee including Bill Polian, Merril Hoge and Herm Edwards based on the player's ability to show proper football technique and mechanics, particularly when blocking and tackling, that youth players should emulate. USA Football is the sport's national governing body that educates youth and high school football coaches.
Marshal Yanda was the second Guard chosen out of the NFL with the other spot going to Zack Martin from the Cowboys. Jacoby Jones nabbed one of four special teams spots as a return specialist, which he is best known for at this point in his career.
Each player selected to the team is given a $1,000 equipment grant from USA Football to donate to the youth or high school football program of his choice. Fans can vote on the All-Fundamentals Team captains, who will receive an additional $1,000 equipment grant to donate. Voting closes on December 23, so go give Jones and Yanda your vote.
