(Wharton, N.J.) Oct. 18, 2012 – Asiantii Woulard of Winter Park High School, Winter Park, 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 6-foot-4, 200-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. Woulard is currently rated as the No. 15 quarterback in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.
Woulard has made a non-binding verbal commitment to sign with South Florida on National Letter of Intent Day.
Scout Eval: "Woulard is a quarterback with a lot of upside. He played wide receiver in high school as a freshman and sophomore before moving to quarterback as a junior. He has a very live arm, he has great size, he is a great athlete, and he has a lot of tools to like. He just needs more experience. He can improve on his decision-making in games and just get a better feel when he is in the pocket. He is smart, he is eager to learn, and very talented." - Chad Simmons
“Asiantii is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Winter Park High School,” said John Myers, Director of Marketing, Army Marketing and Research Group. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Asiantii 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.”
Woulard 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.
