LEBANON, Pa. -- Recognized as one of the top football players in the nation, Jared Odrick of Lebanon, Pa., has been named a 2006 U.S. Army All-American. Odrick 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.
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 80 prep football
student-athletes in the country.

updated ranking will reflect that change in the very near future.

Hot 100 as well as the East
Hot 100. He is currently the #6
ranked prospect in the state of Pennsylvania.

However, he has uncanny athleticism for a big man, which is a reason why he may also end up on the defensive line at the next level. He possesses exceptional feet and is a very gifted basketball player," according to Bob Lichtenfels of Scout.com.

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.

takes pride in making a difference and turning in outstanding performances.

team goals. Jared 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.
