Kayden “KT” Tureaud is bowl bound Jan. 2.

While attending an offense-defense football camp earlier this summer, Kayden, 8, of Gonzales, was named an Offense-Defense All-American, and was invited to participate in the ninth annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida.

Kayden, a running back for the Prairieville Broncos, was selected from several thousand young athletes from across the country.

The Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl is part of a weeklong series of events, including the televised Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, an all-star football game showcasing 88 of the top high school seniors in the country.

Offense-Defense Sports has been operating full-contact football instructional camps for 45 years, and operates in about 40 camp locations nationwide every spring and summer.
