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.
