Tramel Terry, a senior football player from Goose Creek High School, was presented his honorary game jersey at the American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the 2013 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game at Goose Creek High School in Goose Creek, S.C., today. The event was part of the three-month American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the Under Armour All-America Game.
Terry, who has verbally committed to Georgia, is one of 90 players selected to compete in the sixth-annual Under Armour All-America 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.
"This is amazing," Terry said. "I remember when I was in eighth grade watching A.J. Green play against us and I said, ‘I want to be just like him and make it to the (Under Armour) All-America game.' It is just an honor."
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.
"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."
