(Wharton, NJ) November 1, 2011 – Tyriq McCord of Thomas Jefferson High School, Tampa, 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.

“Tyriq is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout A.T. Thomas Jefferson 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 Tyriq 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, 223-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #23 defensive end in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.

According to the latest intel McCord is considering offers from schools like "USC, Miami, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina".

Scout Eval: "A defensive end for his Jefferson team, McCord is an excellent athlete who excels with his quickness. He has a very good work ethic who must be accounted for on every play, because he's not taking any off. He's quick enough to end up at outside linebacker, and he's big enough to play end. He'll need to refine his skills and learn to use technique to beat a man in front of him as he won't always be able to use his quickness." - Scott Kennedy
