After months and months of planning, we’re now mere days away from watching all of the action take place at the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl on Dec. 20 at Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium.
NFL veteran and two-time defending winner Mark McMillian again coaches the West. NFL veteran and Alabama alum, along with McMillian, none other than George Teague coaches the East.
Rosters for both teams consist of the nation’s premier prospects from the Class of 2016 (follow this link for details). Rest assured, there will be no shortage of talent, similar to recent years.
While talks continue a television deal, the game will be nationally broadcast via delayed stream on Impact Football Network (follow this link for details) on Dec. 23 at 9 a.m. (EST), perhaps sooner.
Prior to the game, there will plenty of family-oriented events going on at the DFW Marriott Airport South, again the host hotel of the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl (follow this link for details).
Registration is Dec. 18 from 9 a.m. till noon. Then, players will receive a detailed itinerary for the weekend’s activities: Bowl Practice, Media Night, Jersey Presentation and Formal Banquet, etc.
As many know, the country’s talent pool is as deep as it’s ever been, two other Blue-Grey All-American Bowls will soon take place. Both games, in fact, will be played in the Sunshine State.
North vs. South is on Jan. 9 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium. Blue vs. Grey is on Jan. 16 at Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field. Info to come on the pair of showdowns.
In the meantime, however, the focus turns toward this weekend’s Blue-Grey All-American Bowl at 7 p.m. And if the past is any indication the future, the game should be one for the record books.
