"Nick and Germone are talented athletes whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made them standouts at Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology," said John Myers, Director of Strategic Communications, Marketing and Outreach, U.S. Army Accessions Command. "Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Nick as well as Germone possess similar mental, emotional and physical strengths to Army Strong Soldiers. We are proud to honor all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and congratulate each of them on their selection."
Hopper, a 6-foot-0, 170-pounder certainly bolsters and already impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest and is currently rated as the #20 overall wide receiver in the country by Scout.com, making him a 4-star prospect.
Hopper racked up an abundance of scholarship offers, but has already made a commitment to sign and play for Clemson in college.
Scout Eval: "Hopper is one of the faster prospects in the state for the class of 2012. While not the biggest player around, he does bring some versatility to the table and has the skills to play either wide receiver or cornerback on the next level." - Steve Williams
Dawson, a 6-foot-2, 215-pounder will also add depth to the match-up between East and West. He is currently rated as the #26 overall outside linebacker in the country by Scout.com, making him a 4-star prospect.
Scout Eval: "Dawson has a good frame with the speed and quickness that has helped establish his position as one of the most highly recruited linebackers in the state. Appears to have quite a bit of upside and he'll likely add several more offers before all is said and done." - Steve Williams
