The American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the 2014 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game came to Roosevelt High School on Wednesday, Sept. 18 to honor Senior Arrion Springs and present him with an honorary jersey for his selection to the All-America team.

The event was one stop of a three-month national tour highlighting the country’s top senior high school football players selected to participate in the 2014 Under Armour All-America Game presented by American Family Insurance. The seventh-annual all-star game will take place at 4 p.m. ET January 2, 2014 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., and will be televised on ESPN. A full schedule of events for the Under Armour All-America Game and the American Family Insurance Skills Challenge will be released at a later date.

Springs is one of 90 players selected to compete in the Under Armour All-America Game. For up-to-date roster information, click here.

The national Selection Tour sponsored by American Family Insurance is aimed at raising awareness around teen driving safety and recognizing the student athletes, as well as the coaches, families and communities, who have helped make these players’ dreams a reality.

“High school football is a focal point for many communities, an opportunity to cheer with a single voice for the team,” said Deborah Peterson, American Family Insurance’s director of customer relationship marketing. “Sponsoring the All-American Game not only is American Family Insurance’s way of honoring the top players across the land, it’s also our salute to the communities that inspired these dreams by continuing the rich tradition of high school football.”
