Madden 21 Face of the Franchise storylines are a new feature in this year's title, allowing players to start the story under the Friday night lights of high school football.

After receiving criticism for the storyline in Madden 20 Face of the Franchise, EA Sports has come back with a revamped narrative in Madden 21. There are actually multiple narratives in the new title, and players have more control over their destiny than ever before.

Starting the journey in high school rather than college, players now have the chance to play varsity games and choose their school for NCAA games prior to the draft. A selection of schools for college football include:

  • Florida
  • LSU
  • Michigan State
  • Oklahoma
  • Clemson
  • Nebraska
  • Oregon
  • Miami
  • Texas
  • USC

In addition to the high school days, Madden 21 has a new feature for Face of the Franchise when players get to the draft process. Players will have the option to change positions if they are a quarterback, letting them swap to play as a running back or wide receiver.

This is an awesome new feature from EA and it mocks modern draft practices. Some athletic college quarterbacks who aren't quite NFL material, but can cut it in the league at another position, end up switching prior to the draft and having successful NFL careers.
