(Wharton, NJ) November 8, 2011 – Kwontie Moore of Norfolk Christian School, Norfolk, VA, 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.
“Kwontie is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Norfolk Christian School,” said John Myers, Director of Strategic Communications, Marketing and Outreach, U.S. Army Accessions Command. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Kwontie 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-1, 242-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #39 middle linebacker in the country by Scout.com, making him a three-star prospect.
Moore is committed to play his college ball for Virginia.
Scout Eval: A big-framed guy who plays on both sides of the ball in high school, but will limit his focus to defense going forward. He flies around the football field and can close very quickly. Will need to do a better job of wrapping up, but knows how to deliver the big intimidating hit.
