Jevan Snead is the #8 Quarterback in the country by Scout.com. He has a high school resume that screams Army All-American, but it was more than just physical ability that got him a shot.
At the Scout.com Combine held at Baylor University in May, Snead had already
made his college decision, and he had a hurt knee. Snead didn't back away from
the competition like so many other star athletes might who are afraid of
"hurting their stock".
On one leg, Snead proved that he had a big time arm to go along with guts,
courage, and drive. All of those components are exactly the type of qualities
the U.S. Army is looking for in a player to play in its Bowl game.
The classic East vs. West match-up will be played and televised live on NBC
January 7th at 12:00 p.m. (CST) and will feature the top 78 prep football
student-athletes in the country.
Snead is committed to Florida, and he joins Carl Johnson and Corey Hobbs as
Gators already selected to the squad.
