Catholic High School’s Derrius Guice has been selected to join an elite group of All-Americans for the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Guice recently received the jersey he will wear in the annual East vs. West matchup set for Jan. 3 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
The game will be televised on NBC and will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.
“Derrius and all of the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl players were selected not only for their ability on the football field, but also because they demonstrate mental, emotional and physical toughness — similar strengths to those of our Army soldiers,” said Mark S. Davis, deputy assistant secretary of the Army for marketing. “We are pleased to welcome these talented athletes to this year’s showcase of athleticism, teamwork and excellence and we congratulate each of them on their selection.”
Guice was selected by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee, which consists of All American Games, 247Sports and XOS Digital. U.S. Army All-Americans are eligible for the U.S. Army Player of the Year Award, the Anthony Muñoz Lineman of the Year Award, the American Family Insurance Defensive Player of the Year Award, the Pete Dawkins Game MVP Award and the Felix “Doc” Blanchard and Glenn Davis Awards.
As a result of Guice being selected for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, his head coach Dale Weiner is invited to travel to San Antonio to attend the U.S. Army Coaches Academy, an elite three-day learning experience, and participate in Bowl Week activities.
