Dueling All-Star Games Hit the Airwaves
So it's Saturday afternoon and you've got nothing better to do. Nothing at all. Or maybe you need something to fill the time leading up to the Redskins-Seahawks. Nothing better than some all-star high school football, right? Mixed in with the obligatory hat game as a few players announce their college choices and no doubt send fans into a message board tizzy.
Several local players will suit up in a pair of games. At 1 p.m. on NBC, there's the traditional U.S. Army All-American Bowl from San Antonio, where Dunbar defensive lineman Reggie Ellis (headed to Illinois), Stonewall Jackson running back Ryan Williams (expected to pick between Virginia Tech and Boston College during the game), DeMatha wide receiver Kenny Tate and Friendly running back Lamaar Thomas (Ohio State) will suit up for the East team. Also on the East is Charlottesville defensive lineman Kyle Long, Howie's other son, who is headed to Florida State to play baseball. (And maybe get talked into playing football, I wouldn't be surprised.)
Then, at 2 p.m. on ABC, it's the first ESPN Under Armour High School All-America Game, where Westfield quarterback Mike Glennon (North Carolina State) suits up for the Red team. Christchurch (Va.) wide receiver Deion Walker is on the Silver roster.
