After plenty of careful consideration, both the city of Houston and the Texans’ NRG Stadium have been awarded this year’s Blue-Grey All-American Bowl on Jan. 14. The game will be nationally broadcast live on ESPN3 with an opening kickoff at 1:30 p.m. (CST).
The squads, Team Lone Star vs. Team 49, feature the country’s top prep prospects in the Class of 2019. Team Lone Star will consist of players from only Texas as they defend the Lone Star State. Team 49 will consist of players from the remaining states.
In addition, three other All-American Bowls will soon take place: Dec. 17 and Jan. 29 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, also Jan. 5 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium. Catch all the action on two platforms, ESPN3 or Impact Football Network.
Similar to the other games, this one in Houston, 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.
Worth noting, once a member of the Blue-Grey Football family, always a member. Alumni to compete in the past have experienced success in college, and beyond (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 recent track record of the brand is any indication of what the future holds, the upcoming All-American Bowl at Houston Texans’ NRG Stadium is sure to deliver in its debut. In the meantime, hype continues to build for the inaugural game. Stay tuned for details.
