The game will be televised live on NBC at 1 p.m. and will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.

“Curtis is a talented athlete whose exemplary leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Hermitage High School,” said Col. Derik Crotts, director of strategic communications, marketing and outreach for the U.S. Army Accessions Command. “The strength, dedication, leadership and teamwork skills necessary to succeed on the football field are the same qualities mirrored in Army Strong Soldiers. We are proud to honor all of our U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and congratulate them on their selection.”

Grant was selected by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee, which consists of All American Games’ network of regional directors, Rivals.com and Tom Lemming.
