The classic East vs. West match-up will be played and televised live on NBC
January 7th at 12:00 p.m. (CST) and will feature the top 78 prep football
student-athletes in the country.
Ryan Donahue of Chicago is the #4 ranked kicker in the country by Scout.com,
and he is committed to play for Iowa.
"Ryan is the best kicker in the Midwest. He was 4-for-6 in field goals as a
junior with a long of 55-yards. He has a 4.2 average hang-time on his punts with
an average of 40.6 yards. He'll look good bombing punts for the East in the
Alamodome," said Scout.com.
"It is a great pleasure to have this fine young man selected to represent
his school and community as a U.S. Army All-American," said Colonel Thomas
Nickerson, Director of Strategic Outreach for the U.S. Army Accessions Command.
"He has proven himself to be a superior athlete who, like our Soldiers,
takes pride in making a difference and turning in outstanding performances.
"Our slogan, 'An Army of One,' recognizes the strength of the individual in
achieving team goals. Ryan demonstrates how football, like the Army, makes you a
stronger person not just for today, but into the future. A national audience
will see this when he takes the field in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl,"
said Col. Nickerson.
Donahue is a standout kicker at Saint Rita High School and was one of 400
players nominated nationally and one of 78 selected to participate by the U.S.
Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee.
