Grant's Shaq Thompson to play in Army all-star bowl in Texas

Grant's Shaq Thompson will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Jan. 7 in San Antonio's Alamodome, it was announced today.

The game is billed as the premier high school football all-star event in the country.
It has been a launching pad for college and NFL stars such as Adrian Peterson, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. The game has produced almost 1,000 NCAA athlete alumni, and more than 180 alumni currently play in the NFL.

The multidimensional Thompson, who will play defensive back in the game, is one of six five-star rated players by Rivals.com that have confirmed their participation, according to the event's media spokesman.

The others are wide receiver Stefon Diggs, Our Lady of Good Counsel, Olney, Md.; defensive end Darius Hamilton, Don Bosco Prep Ramsey, N.J.; offensive lineman D.J. Humphries, Mollard Creek HS, Charlotte, N.C.; defensive end Noah Spence, Bishop McDevitt, Harrisburg, Pa.; and offensive lineman John Theus, The Bolles School, Jacksonville, Fla.
