The Marching Band played, and the cheerleaders, mascot, and football team infused school spirit into the audience for the Under Armour All-America Game Selection Tour presentation of a game jersey to senior Ricky Slade, Jr. Slade received his honorary jersey surrounded by his family, coach, and school principal.

Selection as an All-America Bowl player is highly coveted, as less than 100 football players from around the country are selected to play in the game. He is rated as the number 27 overall football player in the nation, and the number one player in Virginia for the class of 2018, by 247Sports.

 After receiving his jersey, Slade thanked his family, coaches, and teammates. “Without you, this would not be possible,” he said. Slade is committed to attend and play football at Pennsylvania State University in the fall of 2018.
