(Wharton, NJ) October 15, 2011 – Dillon Lee of Buford High School, Buford, GA, has been selected to play in the 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans. Those selected will play in the game on Saturday, January 7, 2012, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The annual East vs. West match-up will be televised live on NBC at 1:00 p.m. EST and will be presented by American Family Insurance. The game will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.

“Dillon is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Buford High School,” said John Myers, Director of Strategic Communications, Marketing and Outreach, U.S. Army Accessions Command. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Dillon possesses 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.”

The 6-foot-3, 238-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. Lee is currently rated as the #6 middle linebacker in the country by, making him a 4-star prospect.

Lee has opted to leave his home state and play for Alabama in college.

Scout Eval: "Lee is an outstanding athlete that is very versatile. He could land at tight end or linebacker on the next level, but I like him on the defensive side of the ball. He has the killer instinct, he really closes on the ball well, and he tackles with force. His pass coverage and movement in space can still be improved, but his size, mentality, and athleticism will make him one of the top prospects in Georgia." - Chad Simmons
