Coleman To Fight On In San Antonio

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF. (November 8, 2006) – Martin Coleman of Huntington Beach has been named a 2007 U.S. Army All-American. He will join 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 10:00 (PST) and will feature the nation's top 80 high school football athletes.

Martin Coleman is a standout athlete at Edison High School and was one of 400 players nominated nationally and then ultimately selected by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee. He is ratd as the nation's number four offensive tackle and a five-star prospect according to Scout.com.

"Coleman has a tremendous amount of upside," said Allen Wallace, national recruiting analyst for Scout.com. "He is very strong in pass protection, showing a great base, good feet and excellent use of his hands. He is quick off the ball and a powerful run blocker who plays with a mean streak. Technique improvement will make him even more dominant in the future."

As a U.S. Army All-American, Martin Coleman will have the opportunity during Bowl week to participate in a series of Army leadership and teamwork sessions, NFL athlete seminars, study hall sessions, and goal setting and achieving workshops.

Coleman is committed to USC.
