(Arlington, Texas)-“This is incredible,” said Harlingen HS senior, Pedro Silguero. “To capture this honor is an honor.” Silguero was named the Top Performer amongst the 175 players from Texas, Arizona, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico selected to attend the prestigious Blue Grey All-American Bowl Super Combine on Saturday at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington. Former Seattle Seahawks QB Seneca Wallace presented the award to Silguero. Wallace played in the NFL from 2003 through 2013. He is currently an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys.
Gus Bell, founder of the annual Blue Grey All-American Bowl, features high school seniors from across the United States, who play annually at AT&T Stadium and Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida. “We will be sending out invitations next month for those of you who will be selected to play in one of our bowl games,” said Bell.
Players attend regional combines held throughout the United States with hopes of being selected to the Super Combines. Players are then selected from the Super Combines, who will then play in the annual Blue Grey All-American Bowls. “We are excited to see so much talent,” adds Bell.
From South Texas, Donna HS QB 6’2 Jake Garcia, McAllen Memorial HS OL 6’3 Joshua Lang, Roma HS DE 6’1 Rey Gonzalez, Harlingen HS 6’2 OL Andres Avila, PSJA North DL 6’2 Marcus Hernandez, and Andrew Renner from Edinburg North all impressed Blue Grey Staff members. “I was real impressed with the players from the Rio Grande Valley,” added Bell. “We will definitely invite some players from the RGV to our next bowl games.” (HSSMImages)
