Here is a portion of the press release:

(WHARTON, N.J.) May 9, 2012 – Nine of Washington’s top senior football players have been nominated to play in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Those nominated will have the chance to showcase their talents on Saturday, January 5, 2013, in the annual East vs. West match-up, at San Antonio’s Alamodome televised live on NBC at 1:00 PM EST.

“The U.S. Army All-American Bowl provides the national platform for young athletes and musicians to showcase their talent and strength,” said Bruce Jasurda, Chief Marketing Officer, U.S. Army. “This nomination recognizes the mental, emotional and physical strengths, and leadership qualities, these athletes possess both on and off the field; qualities they share with Army Strong Soldiers. The Army congratulates all of the athletes on their nomination.”

A list of the nominees can be accessed at: www.usarmyallamericanbowl.com/nominations/intro_welcome.php.

The athletes were nominated by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee, which consists of All American Games’ network of regional coaches throughout the country and Rivals.com. Of the 400 nominees, 90 will ultimately be selected and invited to the Bowl. The next step for the nominees occurs in September, when the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Tour begins. Final player selections along with All-American Marching Band musicians will be announced nationwide throughout the fall, with the Selection Tour ending in early December.

For more than a decade, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has been the Nation’s premier high school football game, serving as the preeminent launching pad for America’s future college and NFL stars. Adrian Peterson, Andrew Luck, Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, and Marcus Lattimore all made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans. The 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl drew a crowd of more than 39,000 to the Alamodome, and was the most-watched sporting event on television over the weekend, excluding the NFL playoffs.
