Oglesby Joining West In San Antonio

Josh Oglesby, the nation's top rated offensive lineman by Scout.com, was announced as a U.S. Army All-American on Friday. He joins a group of extraordinary student-athletes selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, January 6, 2007 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

This classic East vs. West match-up will be televised live on NBC at 12:00 Noon (CST) and will feature the nation’s top 80 high school football athletes.

Josh Oglesby, a Scout 100 member, from Saint Francis, Wisconsin, earned the nation's top offensive line spot earlier this year and his coach believes Oglesby deserves all the attention.

"Great kid, great student," said coach Doug Sarver earlier this year. "I really think Josh's best football is ahead of him. He's already a great football player but he's going to get bigger and stronger once he gets into a college atmosphere. Josh has great feet, his hip explosion and knee bend are tremendous and he finishes his blocks."

"I'm a hard worker," said Oglesby" I feel I need to perform everyday. I need to prove to myself and everyone else that I'm deserving of all the accolades I've been given. I don't ever want to get to the point where someone might say I didn't earn anything. That's why I work so hard. As a leader, I feel it's important to know everybody on the team and not just the guys I play with. I feel I dominate when it comes to run blocking because we run the ball 98% of the time so I really want to work on my pass blocking during the spring and summer."

Oglesby will have plenty of time to work with some of the nation's best players during his week of practice leading up to the All-American Bowl.

Oglesby committed to Wisconsin in April.
