(WHARTON, N.J.) – Bralon Addison of L.V. Hightower High School, Missouri City, TX, 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.
“Bralon is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at L.V. Hightower 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 Bralon 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-10, 180-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #38 wide receiver in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.
Addison is committed to play his college ball for Texas A&M.
Scout Eval: He is about 5-10 so he does not have great size but he makes up for it with speed, quickness and he does not like to be tackled. He is very good at getting the ball a couple of yards downfield and then making yards using his feet to get yards. He has some great upside because he also has good hands to go with his speed. Once he adds experience he will be a big weapon.
