(WHARTON, N.J.) November 21, 2011 – Brian Kimbrow of East High School, Memphis, TN, 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.
“Brian is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at East 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 Brian 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 5-foot-9, 165-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #27 runningback in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.
Kimbrow is committed to play his college ball for Vanderbilt.
Scout Eval: "Kimbrow is one of the fastest football prospects in the country. He has that initial burst that can't be taught and he is very tough to touch in the open field. His size limits him a bit as a running back, but he is very tough and not afraid to stick it up inside. He needs to really work on catching the football. It is not a natural thing to him. Improving that will make him a lot more valuable, but his speed sets him apart." - Chad Simmons
