RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Cal. (October 6, 2005) --- Recognized as one of the top football players in the nation, Devin Ross of Rancho Cucamonga, Cal., has been named a 2006 U.S. Army All-American. Ross will join a stand-out list of athletes playing in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, January 7, 2006 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Devin Ross (5-11/180) of Rancho Cucamonga High school is the #2 ranked Cornerback in the entire country according to Scout.com.

The classic East vs. West match-up will be played and televised live on NBC January 7th at 1:00 p.m. (EST) and will feature the top 78 prep football student-athletes in the country.

According to Chris Fetters, regional manager of Scout.com - West, "One of the elite cornerbacks nationally, Devin has good instincts and can close well on receivers. Though undersized, he plays bigger than his height would indicate."

Ross remains uncommitted and will choose between Arizona, California, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, and UCLA among others.

Scout.com is an official selection partner of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

"It is a great pleasure to have this fine young man selected to represent his school and community as a U.S. Army All-American," said Colonel Thomas Nickerson, Director of Strategic Outreach for the U.S. Army Accessions Command. "He has proven himself to be a superior athlete who, like our Soldiers, takes pride in making a difference and turning in outstanding performances.

"Our slogan, 'An Army of One,' recognizes the strength of the individual in achieving team goals. Devin demonstrates how football, like the Army, makes you a stronger person not just for today, but into the future. A national audience will see this when he takes the field in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl," said Col. Nickerson.
