Phoenix Lands All-American High School Football Game

And then there were three...three high school football All-American all-star football games that is.

The United State Marine Corps and Junior Rank, a national training company for young athletes, announced today the creation of the Semper Fidelis All American Bowl that will be played January 3, 2012 at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. The East-West format game will showcase 100 of the best seniors in the nation.

"The United States Marine Corps is the embodiment of honor, tradition and working with your teammate to achieve an objective," said Junior Rank founder Shaon Berry. "Nothing will stop a Marine from his objective. The parallels between a winner on and off the field, those same core values, will be manifest in the participants of the bowl game and combine which bears the name of the United States Marine Corps. We look forward to bringing in the best athletes from across the nation to a beautiful setting in Phoenix for a true celebration of the game."

The Semper Fidelis All American Bowl will be held in conjunction with Fiesta Bowl Week and the celebration surrounding the BCS bowl game in Arizona.

The U.S. Army All-American Bowl is the oldest of the post-season national all-star games. Recently Under Armour joined the field with the help of a television contract with ESPN.

Hamilton's Steve Belles on Sunday's NHSCA Sports Hour

With spring high school football practice getting ready to kick-off in select states around the nation within the month, I thought I'd spend some time talking about football on Sunday's NHSCA Sports Hour.

Steve Belles, head coach of the powerful Hamilton Huskies, will join us as the lead guest on the show. Hamilton is the three-time defending Class 5A Division I champs with a 40-game win streak.

One of the main topics on the show will be a game in 2012.  That's right, I'm talking about two years from now. That's when the Huskies will play California-power Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks in the first-ever American high school football game in Ireland.

Don't worry, we'll also spend plenty of time talking about what's ahead for the program in 2011.
