2017 U.S. ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL
Become Greater Than...
On January 7, 2017 the U.S. Army All-American Bowl will once again kick off at San Antonio's Alamodome. As it has for seventeen years, this classic East versus West matchup will feature a collection of tomorrow's college and NFL stars showcasing their talents for a national television audience. The U.S. Army All-American Marching Band, which is comprised of 125 of the nation's finest young musicians and color guard members, will perform at halftime.
Selection as a U.S. Army All-American is an important and prestigious honor for these athletes and musicians. U.S. Army All-Americans and Army Soldiers share key attributes, like leadership, adaptability and versatility, which enable them to prevail in challenging situations. Activities throughout Bowl Week help connect these All-American athletes and musicians with Army Soldier Heroes from around the country and provide better understanding of what it takes and what it means to be an Army Soldier
A total of 330 U.S. Army All-American Bowl alumni have played in the NFL, with 77 first-round draft picks and 37 Super Bowl champions. Building upon the extraordinary players and incredible moments featured during each of the previous U.S. Army All-American Bowls, this year’s Bowl promises to provide the thousands in attendance, and millions more watching on NBC, a look into the future of college and professional football.
