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.

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. In the 2013 NFL Draft, there were a total of 8 U.S. Army All-American Bowl Alumni drafted in the first round. The 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl drew a crowd of 40,133 to the Alamodome, and was the most-watched sporting event on television over the weekend, excluding the NFL playoffs.

S C.J. Hampton - Meridian (Miss.) High
HT: 6'1 | WT: 190
Pos. Rating: 10


Committed to Ole Miss

Scout Eval: Hampton is known most for his physical style of play at safety, but he can cover too. He has very good closing speed, he has great range, and not only can he strike the receiver, but he can take the ball away too. It remains to be seen if Hampton will grow into a strong safety or patrol the secondary as a free safety. With his willingness to get in there and mix it up, he will likely be a guy college coaches walk down into the box to get him closer to the action.


OT David Sharpe - Jacksonville (Fla.) Providence
HT: 6'6 | WT: 295
Pos. Rating: 13


Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Clemson, Tennessee

Scout Eval: Sharpe has all the tools you are looking for in an offensive tackle. He is athletic, tall with long arms. Has quick feet and moves well. Plays through whistle and with attitude. Does a good job of getting his hands inside both in run and pass blocking. Needs to come off the ball lower when run blocking. Does a good job of running his feet when run blocking. Better pass blocker at this time. Huge upside as he gets stronger and more explosive.

QB Caleb Henderson - Burke (Va.) Lake Braddock
HT: 6'3 | WT: 225
Pos. Rating: 11


Committed to North Carolina

Scout Eval: Henderson has good size and athleticism. He has good pocket awareness and does a nice job extending the play and keeping his eyes downfield. Henderson has a big arm and can make all the throws. He is also a threat to run the football and does not mind lowering his shoulder and challenging the defender. Overall, Henderson has all the tools to become a big-time quarterback in college.
