(Wharton, N.J.) Oct. 12, 2012 – Kameron Miles of West Mesquite High School, Mesquite, Texas, has been selected to play in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans. Those selected will play in the game on Saturday, January 5, 2013, 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 feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.
The 6-foot-2, 212-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. Miles is currently rated as the No. 10 safety in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.
Miles has made a non-binding verbal commitment to sign with Tennessee on National Letter of Intent Day, but since making his commitment he has also made an official visit to Arizona State.
Scout Eval - Just by looking at Miles' size and frame you would naturally figure in the fact that he is a more of a down hill linebacker, but Miles backs up in person exactly what he shows on film – the ability to run and cover. He moves well and has some natural instincts. He can turn and run with WRs and makes plays on the ball. He could play safety or grow in to a linebacker in college, but he will be able to use his skills at either spot.
“Kameron is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at West Mesquite High School,” said John Myers, Director of Marketing, Army Marketing and Research Group. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Kameron possesses mental, emotional and physical strengths similar to the Army Strong Soldier, that have afforded him that honor. We are proud to welcome all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and commend each of them on their selection.”
Miles was selected by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee.
As a result of Miles being selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, his head coach Mike Overton is invited to travel to San Antonio and attend the U.S. Army Coaches Academy, an elite three-day learning experience featuring NFL coaches, as well as participate in bowl-week activities.
For more than a decade, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has been the Nation’s premier high school football game, serving as the preeminent launching pad for America’s future college and NFL stars. Andrew Luck, Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, Ndamukong Suh, and Marcus Lattimore all made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans. In the 2012 NFL Draft Andrew Luck became the first U.S. Army All-American Bowl alumnus to be selected with the first overall pick. The 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl drew a record crowd of 39,011 to the Alamodome, and was the most-watched sporting event on television over the weekend, excluding the NFL playoffs.
