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.

Dwight Williams of Serra High School in Gardena, CA, 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.

“Williams is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Serra 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-1, 212-pounder is rated as a Scout.com four-star prospect, the No. 12 outside linebacker nationally.

"Williams has twice been the linebacker MVP at the Los Angeles NFTC, had a strong showing at The Opening last summer," Scout.com informs.

"Williams is very good in run support and has taken his game to another level in pass coverage, looking fluid and moving well laterally. He plays with an edge, is a big hitter and is the type of 'backer that will never have to leave the field."

Williams is still uncommitted. He has taken an official visit to Oklahoma (10/04) and has a visit scheduled to see Florida (11/30). Schools such as UCLA and Michigan have also been mentioned as schools in the running for a visit.

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.
