After plenty of careful consideration, both the city of Atlanta and the Falcons’ Mercedes Benz Stadium have been awarded this year’s Blue-Grey All-American Bowl on Jan. 13. The game will be nationally broadcast live on ESPN3 with an opening kickoff at 6 p.m. (EST).
In addition, three other All-American Bowls will soon take place: Dec. 16 and Jan. 20 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, also Jan. 6 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium. Catch all the action on two platforms, ESPN3 or Impact Football Network.
Similar to the other high-profile games, in Atlanta the brand’s staff of NFL veterans (link for list of mentors) not only serve as coaches, but also mentors and provide invaluable instruction to student-athletes over the course of the three-day All-American Bowl Weekend.
Once a member of the Blue-Grey Football family, always a member. Alumni to compete in the past have experienced success (link for Class of 2019, link for Class of 2018, link for Class of 2017, link for Class of 2016, link for Class of 2015, link for Class of 2014).
If the brand’s recent track record is any indication of what the future holds, the upcoming All-American Bowl is sure to deliver in its Atlanta debut, home of last year’s Super Bowl LIII. Worth noting, all other game venues have hosted a Super Bowl. Stay tuned for details.
In closing, and for those who did not attend one of the recent and nationwide All-American Combines, brand administrators are now accepting nominations for possible participation in this year’s All-American Bowl (click right here to start and finish the process).
