(Wharton, NJ) October 31, 2011 – Vince Biegel of Lincoln High School, Wisconsin Rapids, WI, has been selected to play in the 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans. Those selected will play in the game on Saturday, January 7, 2012, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The annual East vs. West match-up will be televised live on NBC at 1:00 p.m. EST and will be presented by American Family Insurance. The game will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.
“Vince is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Lincoln High School,” said John Myers, Director of Strategic Communications, Marketing and Outreach, U.S. Army Accessions Command. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Vince possesses similar mental, emotional and physical strengths to Army Strong Soldiers. We are proud to honor all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and congratulate each of them on their selection.”
The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #26 outside linebacker in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.
Biegel is committed to play his college ball at Wisconsin.
Scout Eval: “Biegel is a true middle backer who does a good job of diagnosing plays, taking on blocks and making tackles. He is a good athlete who has the ability to run down ball carriers. He takes good angles and has good closing speed. When taking on blocks, he shows good leverage and gets under the pads of offensive linemen. At 205-lbs, he will need to get bigger and stronger. That is evident in some of his tackling where he makes solid contact, but ends up dragging down the ball carrier. I'd like to see him explode through ball carriers more.” - Allen Trieu
