Green Wave offensive lineman Zack Bailey has been nominated for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Each year only 400 high school athletes across the nation are nominated for the prestigious all-star game. Once the Army decides on its nominations, it keeps track of the athletes and evaluates them through their senior high school season. In late November or early December of this year, 90 of those nominated will receive an invitation to participate in the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl to be held Jan. 3 in San Antonio’s Alamodome.
“I just found out about this today so I’m kind of shocked,” Bailey said. “I’m glad for the opportunity and will definitely sign up for it because I would like to participate in one of the high school bowl games. It’s a tremendous honor so I just thank them for it.”
Bailey is a Division 1 prospect who is still undecided on which college or university he wants to play for.
“I’m keeping my option open,” Bailey said. “I’m taking it day by day and learning about several schools. I want to see more before I decided. I want to be sure before I make that decision so that I don’t end up second guessing my choice.”
The U.S. Army All-American Bowl is the nation’s premier high school All-American game, featuring some of the best high school seniors in a classic East vs. West match-up every January in San Antonio’s Alamodome. The Army Bowl enjoys a worldwide television audience.
Building upon the extraordinary players and incredible moments featured during each of the previous U.S. Army All-American Bowls, this year’s promises to provide the thousands in attendance, and millions watching on NBC around the world, an unforgettable look at the future of college and professional football.
The history and tradition of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl is unparalleled, highlighted by Heisman Trophy winners and more than 200 NFL players counted among its alumni.
