Now, Nick Chubb of Cedartown High School in Cedartown, GA, 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.
"Chubb is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Cedartown High School," said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army for Marketing.
"Only the strongest wear the Army colors and we are proud to welcome all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and commend each of them on their selection."
Chubb, a 5-foot-10, 213-pounder is rated as a Scout.com four-star, the No. 11 running back nationally.
Scout Eval - Chubb has deceptive speed. He is still more quick than fast, but he is faster than many think. He can run inside or on the perimeter. He is not a back with a lot of wiggle, but more of a strong back with power that will run through tackles, not around them. He is very durable and he runs well behind his pads. He is thick and he is a back that can stay on the field at all times. He runs with very good balance.
Chubb is verbally committed to Georgia.
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.
