The Under Armour All-America High School Football Game pits some of the country’s top pigskin-handling seniors against each other in an All America game broadcast by ESPN. More than 90 promising young athletes pull out their hardest-hitting demonstrations of skill and announce their college destinations at the game, pumping up alumni and convincing burnt-out mascots to squeeze into the giant head one more time. The game has previously catapulted athletes including first-round NFL picks Julio Jones, currently a wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons, and A. J. Green of the Cincinnati Bengals, onto the national stage. Tropicana Field contains the on-field and in-stand energy within a giant dome, protecting heads from the elements and sky-diving long snappers.
