Reeseā€™s Senior Bowl to honor top HS players

Thu, Nov 15, 2018

MOBILE, Ala. (Nov. 15) – The Senior Bowl will honor the top high school football players in Mobile and Baldwin County at its inaugural Turkey Touchdown event this Sunday. 

The ‘Senior Bowl Future Prospect Team’ consists of local players who have received at least one Division I/FBS scholarship offer for the 2019 season.

“The Senior Bowl is excited to announce our first-ever Future Prospect Team,” said Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy. “The Mobile area and Baldwin County produce some of the most talented and well-coached high school players in the nation on a yearly basis and we want to acknowledge all of our outstanding local players who will be playing at the FBS level next fall.” 

The team will be honored on the field at 3:00pm, after the conclusion of the second youth football exhibition game at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

Members of the Senior Bowl Ambassador Club, including Mobile’s newly enshrined Pro Football Hall of Famer Robert Brazile, will be on hand to help recognize the players.

Throughout the day, the Senior Bowl will also be handing off 400 turkey dinners to preselected families through Feeding the Gulf Coast.

Here are the players who will be honored on Sunday, with potentially a couple more to be added in the next day or two:
