North Shore High School football players Trey Hopkins and DeAndrew White were selected to play in the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of student-athletes.
Hopkins, an offensive lineman, and White, wide receiver, will play in the 10th Anniversary game on Saturday, January 9, 2010 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. The game will be broadcast live on NBC at noon and will feature the nation’s top 90 high school players. David Aymond, head coach of the North Shore Mustangs, will coach in the game and will attend the U.S. Army Coaches Academy, an elite two-day learning experience featuring NFL and NCAA coaches.
For 10 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. Adrian Peterson, Reggie Bush, Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, and Vince Young all made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans.
“Trey and DeAndrew are talented athletes whose exemplary displays of leadership and teamwork have made them standouts at North Shore Senior High School,” said Col. Derik Crotts, Deputy Chief of Staff, G7, U.S. Army Accessions Command. “The qualities necessary to succeed on the football field, strength, dedication, leadership and teamwork, are the same qualities mirrored in Army Strong Soldiers.”
