(Wharton, N.J.) Oct. 16, 2012 – Greg Bryant of American Heritage High School, Delray Beach, Fla., 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 5-foot-10, 205-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. Bryant is currently rated as the No. 14 running back in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.

Bryant made an early commitment to sign with Oklahoma, but has since opened things up and is now considering schools like Georgia, Auburn, South Carolina and Florida State

Scout Eval - "Bryant is a running back that runs with power behind his pads. He is someone that can run through tackles, get the extra yards after contact, and break tackles on a regular basis. He has good straight-line speed, but he is not an elusive back. He is a power guy, a straight ahead runner, and someone who can wear defenses down. He has also shown the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield." - Chad Simmons

"Greg is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at American Heritage High School," said John Myers, Director of Marketing, Army Marketing and Research Group. "Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Greg 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."

Bryant was selected by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee.

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.
