Brian Wallace of Christian Brothers College High School in St. Louis, MO, has been selected to play in the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans. Those selected will play in the game on Saturday, January 4, 2014, 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.
“Wallace is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Christian Brothers College High School,” said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army for Marketing. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and are proud to welcome all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and commend each of them on their selection.”
The 6-foot-6, 280-pounder is rated as the No. 16 offensive tackle prospect nationally, a scout.com four-star prospect.
He is considering schools such as Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oregon and UCLA.
"A big prospect who has a ton of potential and moves very well for his size. It is no surprise that he is heavily recruited by BCS programs. He is tall and long, but has good weight in the lower body and a strong, balanced base."
"Has very good upper and lower body playing strength. Has a very strong punch that stops defenders in their tracks. Strong enough to finish once he locks on. Seems to be a prototype RT with potential to be a LT."
For more than 13 years, 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. Adrian Peterson and Andrew Luck made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans.
