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.
"Ruffin is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at St. Pius X Catholic 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."
As a result of Ruffin being selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, his head coach Paul Standard is invited to travel to San Antonio and attend the U.S. Army Coaches Academy, an elite three-day learning experience, including Bowl Week activities.
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.
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.
