(Wharton, NJ) October 27, 2011 – Kent Taylor of Land O’Lakes High School, Land O’Lakes, FL, 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. “Kent is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Land O’Lakes 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 Kent 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-5, 215-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #1 tight end in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.

Taylor is committed to play his college ball at Florida.

Scout Eval: "Taylor has an excellent frame with room to grow. He lines up at tight end and receiver, and he's a good enough athlete to do both on the next level. He has outstanding feet letting him get off the line and change direction quickly. He is a tenacious blocker, but will need to add size and strength to have the same effectiveness in college. Taylor can outrun most linebackers and all but the fastest safeties." - Scott Kennedy
