(WHARTON, N.J.) November 18, 2011 – Taylor McNamara of Westview High School, San Diego, CA, 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.

“Taylor is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Westview 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 Taylor 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, 235-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #19 tight end in the country by, making him a three-star prospect.

McNamara is considering offers from Arizona, Colorado, Washington, California, Notre Dame and Oklahoma.

Scout Eval: McNamara is a big, soft-handed receiver for his Westview team. He has quick feet and shows the ability to get off the line quickly and run crisp routes, but at times he plays off balance which causes him to stumble out of the blocks and hurts him when he's blocking. He has an excellent frame and shows potential for growth. He has natural hands and extends well to make a catch. He needs to fill out his frame and get stronger: Scott Kennedy
