As the high school football season has come to a close, the Blue-Grey Football organization has formed its rosters for its annual All American Bowls. The organization is a brand established to help high school football players get national exposure and increase their chances of receiving scholarships to colleges all across the country, as well as allowing them to compete with the other highly skilled high school prospects.
Matt McClurg ’17, an offensive and defensive lineman who just finished his senior season was one of those selected to play in the Pacific Vs. Atlantic All American Bowl at the Oakland Raiders’ Coliseum.
“I am super excited for this opportunity and I think that it will really help me grow as a player and hopefully help more colleges want me to play for their program,” says McClurg.
Matt McClurg ’17 is honored with his coach Matt McChesney. McChesney is the Offensive Line Coach for Matt’s West Coast team and is a former Denver Broncos player.
McClurg’s offensive position coach, Mr. Woodman, who is also a Social Studies teacher at Heritage, has been able to watch McClurg grow and improve the way he plays throughout his career.
“Matt is an incredibly talented and physical player who deserves to play in this game and hopefully it will really help him be able to find a college program that best suits him and also prepare him for the next level,” says Coach Woodman.
The game will take place on Saturday, January 21st, at 2:00 P.M. MT and will be a must see event for many college coaches looking for new athletes to bring to their programs.
