Glennon Named Team MVP in UA Game

NC State quarterback commitment Mike Glennon was named team MVP in the inaugural Under Armour All-America Game following an impressive performance.

After establishing himself as one of the nation's top drop-back passers with a solid week of practice and a win in the Burger King Skill's Challenge on Thursday, Westfield High School (Chantilly, Va) QB Mike Glennon's week culminated with him being named Team Red's player of the game in the inaugural Under Armour All-America game held in Orlando, Fla.

In the contest, won by Team Silver 17-14, Glennon displayed a tremendously strong arm and surprising footwork while completing 5 of 12 passes for 91 yards. He also added a two-yard run for Team Red's only offensive score of the day.

Glennon was particularly strong with his intermediate passing game, completing four passes in the 20-25 yard range. Of his seven incompletions, three were dropped and three were overthrown deep balls.

At 6-6, 200 pounds, Glennon showed that he could be very effective making throws on the run. On one completion of close to 20 yards, he rolled to the left, threw against his body and delivered a perfect strike.

On another play after being chased from the pocket, Glennon rolled to his right and rifled a pass completion for 24 yards down the sidelines just before being hit by defensive end Daquan Bowers.

Glennon was joined by Bowers in being named players of the game.

Note: NC State commitment Brandon Barnes from Bunn (NC) High School had just one carry for one yard in the contest.
