ROCKAWAY, N.J. (May 19, 2015) – Fifteen of Mississippi’s top senior football players have been nominated to play in the 2016 U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Those nominated will have the chance to showcase their talents on Saturday, January 9, 2016, in the annual East vs. West match-up, televised live on NBC at 1:00 PM EST.

“The U.S. Army All-American Bowl is a unique event designed to showcase and recognize the talents of America’s youth while celebrating the team that makes a difference every day for the Nation – the U.S. Army,” said Mark S. Davis, deputy assistant secretary of the Army for marketing. “This nomination recognizes the versatility and adaptability the athletes possess both on and off the field; qualities they share with U.S. Army Soldiers. We look forward to the 2016 Army All-American Bowl program that includes more than 200 events across the country and culminates in San Antonio during game week.”
