After losing in last month’s state championship game Notre Dame commitment Bo Wallace looked to the 2015 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl to end his high school career on a winning note.

Wallace helped lead the East to a 24-3 win over the West on Sunday at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

“It was actually a great feeling because I didn’t get to win state with my home team, my high school,” Wallace said. “It was definitely a great feeling to get out with some guys I didn’t know. At the end of the day we all are brothers and it was great.”

The East built a 10-0 lead at halftime and outscored the West, 14-3, in the second half to even the series in the fourth annual all-star contest.

With Wallace at defensive end, the East held the West to just 250 yards of offense on 66 plays for 3.8 yards per play.

Four Irish commitments represented the West.

C.J. Sanders caught just one pass for one yard while Micah Dew-Treadway, Prentice McKinney and Brandon Tiassum all lined up on the defensive side of the ball.

Dew-Treadway, a defensive end, wasn’t officially credited with a tackle but he was in on several stops and recorded quarterback hurry. McKinney, a safety, and Tiassum, a defensive tackle, both recorded two stops.

Wide receiver Miles Boykin was on the West roster but could not play due to an injury he suffered during his senior season.
