Davon Godchaux of Plaquemine High School in Plaquemine, LA, 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.
“Godchaux is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Plaquemine High School,” said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army for Marketing.
Godchaux was honored with a presentation, but will not be able to participate in the game because of an ACL injury that he suffered early on in the 2013 season. He had surgery to repair that injury on September, 20.
The 6-foot-4, 271-pounder is rated as a Scout.com four-star prospect, the No. 18 defensive end nationally.
Godchaux is listed as a soft verbal to LSU, where he committed earlier in 2013. He has already taken an official visit to Ole Miss and reports that he will also make stops at Florida State, Miami and UCLA.
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.
