[Oct. 1, 2013] Bradenton, Fla. – Senior football player Bo Scarbrough was presented his honorary game jersey during the American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the 2014 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., today. The event was part of the three-month American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the Under Armour All-America Game.
Scarbrough is one of 90 players selected to compete in the seventh-annual Under Armour All-America Game presented by American Family Insurance, a nationally televised competition spotlighting the country’s top high school seniors. The 2014 Under Armour All-America Game is set for 4 p.m. ET Jan. 2 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., and will be televised on ESPN.
"First, I'd like to thank God. It's a blessing to be here today. I'd like to thank Coach Weinke and the coaching staff for guiding me and leading me down the right path, and I'd like to thank the Under Armour All-America Game for this day," Scarbrough said. "I'm going to take the Under Armour All-America Game as just another high school game and forget that all of the cameras are there. It will be pretty cool to play on ESPN, as there are a lot of kids who don't get to play in this game, so I'm definitely going to take advantage."
The national Selection Tour sponsored by American Family Insurance is aimed at raising awareness around teen driving safety and recognizing the student athletes, as well as the coaches, families and communities who have helped make these players' dreams a reality.
"High school football is a focal point for many communities, an opportunity to cheer with a single voice for the team," said Deborah Peterson, American Family Insurance's director of customer relationship marketing. "Sponsoring the All-American Game not only is American Family Insurance's way of honoring the top players across the land, it's also our salute to the communities that inspired these dreams by continuing the rich tradition of high school football."
