(WHARTON, N.J.) November 11, 2011 – Kendall Sanders of Athens High School, Athens, TX, has been selected to play in the 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans.

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-0, 175-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #22 wide receiver in the country by, making him a four-star prospect.

Sanders is committed to play his college ball for Oklahoma State.

Scout Eval: Sanders excels on both sides of the ball. He could be an excellent defensive back prospect in college if his heart was in it, but he prefers to have the ball in his hands, where he uses his top-end speed to torch defenders in the open field. He gets a lot of carries as a running back and balls thrown to him underneath. He then uses his skills to make big plays. He is a weapon as a return man.
