from mysanantonio.com with the A A-A Bowl report, and on this subject, we don’t have direct information on how Keenan Allen did, but some of the Alabama Crimson Tide message boards are saying that Keenan will visit Alabama again this weekend to meet with coaches and there is some specualation/talk on the Alabama boards that Keenan was hoping to see the Tide put the ball in the air more during the bowl win over Texas and since Allen is their Five-Star recruit, and he is #1 on Alabama’s list, he wants to be sure that the Tide will be ready to throw the ball more, if he ends up at wide receiver, when he suits up for them in the fall……..
Could Keenan Allen be having second thoughts about choosing Alabama? Maybe, maybe not; but all parties involved want to be together on the same page/playing field, as they look to come together in the future…….
from the game……
One of seven finalists for the U.S. Army Player of the Year award, given annually to the best high school football player in America, Ronald Powell admitted he was disappointed to lose out at Friday’s awards banquet.
As far as consolation prizes went, earning game MVP honors for his role in the West’s 30-14 victory Saturday in the 10th U.S. Army All-American Bowl wasn’t too bad.
â€œI didn’t win the Player of the Year award,â€ he said, â€œso I made sure I left with a trophy in my hands.â€
A 6-foot-5, 230-pound defensive end from Mission Viejo, Calif., Powell burnished his reputation as arguably the top prospect in the country at his position with five tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
But that was merely part of his standout afternoon in front of a crowd of 34,126 at the Alamodome.
He also caught a 23-yard touchdown as an emergency tight end, returned a blocked PAT for two points, then capped off his day by committing to Florida. He was the last of four players who pledged to the Gators on Saturday, including highly touted defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd.
