The goal is to promote the All-American Bowl and a select few of the nation’s top prospects in the Class of 2019 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, specifically Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and Houston Texans’ NRG Stadium.
The action from the All-American Bowl will be nationally broadcast on ESPN3 or Impact Football Network (check your local listings). Similar to year’s past, the footage will be permanently archived.
Taj Gregory from Coppell (TX) was an honoree in an recent event at AT&T Stadium, the same venue where the 6-foot-7 and 205-pound quarterback will be in uniform for West vs. East on Dec. 17.
Worth noting, also in attendance were Conference USA targets Kaghen Roach from Celina (TX) and Kameron Ranson from Fairfield (TX), also Kansas State commit Trevor Stange from Coppell (TX).
Gregory was rated as a two-star pro-style prospect in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, an accurate talent indicator as the tool takes into account evaluations of all the major recruiting services.
With several scholarships already in place and interest from Conference USA, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC), the future appears to be bright.
Also, in an interesting turn of events, teams from the Big Sky Conference have reached out. Don’t be surprised to see Northern Colorado pull the trigger on an offer. Sooner, rather than later, too.
