(Wharton, NJ) October 20, 2011 – Ryan Ward of Providence Catholic High School, New Lenox, IL, 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.

“Ryan is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Providence Catholic 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 Ryan 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-6, 270-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. Ward is currently rated as the #47 offensive tackle in the country by Scout.com, making him a 3-star prospect.

Ward is committed to Iowa.

Scout Eval: A big, strong offensive lineman who will get better as he matures and adds some strength. He has long arms and plays very aggressively, with good technique. This is exactly the type of offensive lineman that Iowa has had an abundance of success developing in years past. He is a hard working, disciplined offensive lineman who only needs to add some bulk to his frame.
