Every year, moreover right around this time, the staff from Blue-Grey Football, with a collection of NFL veterans and administrators, hits the road on the brand’s nationwide Jersey Presentation Tour.
The goal is to promote the All-American Bowl and a select few of the nation’s top prospects in the Class of 2018 are recognized in front of family and friends. The community in general, to that end.
Four games soon take place, each of them at an NFL venue, those being Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field.
The action from the All-American Bowl will be nationally broadcast on either ESPN3 or Impact Football Network (please check your local listings). Also, similar to year’s past, the footage will be permanently archived.
Arguably, no individual on the field is nearly as important as an offensive lineman, particularly center. Accordingly, Colorado commit Josh Jynes from Desoto (TX) recently received an acknowledgement.
The 6-foot-3 and 310-pounder lines up for the West vs. East on Jan. 22 at AT&T Stadium. Aligned in the stars, it seems, his final game on the prep circuit will essentially be right in his own backyard.
Jynes was the nation’s No. 26 player at his position in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, an accurate indicator of talent considering the tool takes into account evaluations of the major recruiting services.
No surprise, more than a few colleges from all over the country were hoping to land a possible commitment. For the record, Jynes had plenty of options, with a handful of scholarship in place.
However, playing for the Buffaloes and in the Pac-12 Conference was too good an offer to pass up. Similarly, the chance to play in the All-American Bowl was too good an opportunity to pass up.
Editor’s note: Each participant in the All-American Bowl will receive a Jersey Presentation during All-American Bowl Weekend with plenty of media in attendance, both national and local.
