[Sept. 19, 2013] Bamberg, S.C. – Senior football player Kevin Crosby 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 Bamberg-Ehrhardt High School in Bamberg, S.C., today. The event was part of the three-month American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the Under Armour All-America Game.
Crosby 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.
"I decided to accept the invitation to the Under Armour All-America Game because the two guys before me went to the game and I want to experience what they experienced,” Crosby said. “Being invited to the Under Armour All-America Game is a blessing because a lot of people don't get the chance that I'm getting. It's a real honor that I was chosen."
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."
