Storey, O’Grady Nominated For U.S. Army Game
Fayetteville tight end C.J. O’Grady and Charleston quarterback Ty Storey have been racking up scholarship offers to some of the best football programs in the country.
The two added a nomination to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Friday.
O’Grady hauled in 46 passes for 900 yards and found the end zone 14 times in 2013 for the Bulldogs.
Storey completed 268-of-408 passes, a 65 percent completion percentage, for 4,241 yards and 52 touchdowns as he led the Tigers to a perfect 15-0 season and the 3A state championship.
Junction City defensive lineman Jamario Bell and Pine Bluff tight end Will Gragg were also nominated.
“The U.S. Army All-American Bowl is a unique celebration of high school athletes, musicians and the American Soldier,” deputy assistant secretary of the Army for marketing Mark S. Davis said in a press release. “This nomination recognizes the mental, emotional and physical strengths, as well as the leadership qualities these athletes possess both on and off the field; qualities they share with Army Strong Soldiers. We look forward to the continued opportunity to showcase the talents of America’s youth during the All-American Bowl Selection Tour and Bowl Week.”
Nominations have been awarded to 400 players across the country. A final roster of 90 will be announced this fall.
