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.

Winston Polite from Notre Dame (CA) recently received an acknowledgement. The 6-foot-5 and 250-pound defensive lineman was selected to line up for the West vs. East on Jan. 22 at AT&T Stadium.
Polite was rated as a two-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, an accurate indicator of talent considering that the tool takes into account evaluations of all the major recruiting services.
At one point, not long ago, more than a few schools from the Mountain West Conference expressed varied levels of interest in him, specifically speaking San Diego State, San Jose State and Wyoming.
Nowadays, programs from the Pac-12 Conference are involved in the process. Arizona and Colorado are a couple of the teams in the mix. It would not be a surprise to see others follow suit soon.
Where he ends up at the next level is anyone’s guess. One thing is fairly certain, however, after an appearance in the All-American Bowl, the next destination for Polite will be a college campus.
