2016 U.S. ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL
ADAPT. ACHIEVE. BELIEVE.
On January 9, 2016, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl will once again kick off at San Antonio's Alamodome. As it has for more than a decade, 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 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 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.
More than 100 current NFL players and Heisman Trophy winners are counted among U.S. Army All-American Bowl alumni. 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.
The U.S. Army - Pro Football Hall of Fame - Award for Excellence Program seeks to highlight the Nation’s top sophomore, junior and senior high school athletes who exemplify strengths similar to U.S. Army Soldiers; and who not only excel athletically, but who also excel academically and are active in their communities.Learn More
