Montravius Adams, a senior football player from Dooly County High School and the No. 7 prospect in the nation according to ESPN 150, was presented his honorary game jersey at the American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the 2013 Under Armour All-American High School Football Game at Dooly County High School in Vienna, Ga., today. The event was part of the three-month American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the Under Armour All-American Game.
Adams is one of 90 players selected to compete in the sixth-annual Under Armour All-American Game presented by American Family Insurance, a nationally televised competition spotlighting the country's top high school seniors. The 2013 Under Armour All-America Game is slated for 5 p.m. ET on Jan. 4, 2013 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., and will be televised on ESPN.\
"I knew that I wanted to play in the Under Armour All-America Game," Adams said. "I thought it was the best game for me to play in. I know I will have a lot of competition in it."
The national Selection Tour sponsored by American Family Insurance is an expansion of the Under Armour All-America Game. As part of American Family Insurance's involvement, the events will raise awareness around teen driving safety and recognize the student athletes, as well as the coaches, families and communities who have helped make these players' dreams a reality. During the jersey presentation, Adams' mother, Debbie Young, was presented with the "American Family Insurance Dream Protector Award," given to the person(s) most responsible for helping each player realize their dream.
"It starts with a dream and the desire to be great, whether your area of interest is sports or something completely different," said Deborah Peterson, American Family Insurance's customer relationship marketing director. "These young athletes put in the work and made the sacrifices to realize their dreams, and American Family Insurance is proud to present this tremendous honor to them."
The American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the Under Armour All-America Game continues tomorrow, when Dontre Wilson (DeSoto High School - DeSoto, Texas) will be presented with his honorary Under Armour All-America Game jersey at his high school.
