The U.S. Army All-American Bowl is a high school football all-star game typically held in early January in Texas. Currently played in the Alamodome in San Antonio, the game features high school athletes that excel both on the football field and in the classroom.[1] The Pete Dawkins Trophy is presented to the game's MVP. At a formal dinner on the evening before the game, the Kenneth Hall Trophy (also known as U.S. Army National Player of the Year Award) is awarded to the most outstanding high-school football player in the United States. The award is named after Ken “Sugarland Express” Hall, the all-time leading rusher in high-school football history. The trophy is cast in the likeness of Ken Hall in his 1950’s uniform.

The game was first played on December 30, 2000, in Highlander Stadium in Dallas, Texas.[2] Since then, however, the game has annually been played inside the Alamodome in San Antonio. Alumni from the first game in 2000 included Kevin Jones and Marlin Jackson,[2] two current players in the NFL. Other notable alumni include Adrian Peterson, Brady Quinn, Tommie Harris, Ted Ginn Jr. and Terrelle Pryor.[2] 24 Army All-Americans were selected in the 2007 NFL Draft. Currently, there are over 100 alumni that are in the NFL.[1]

Since the game's inception, attendance has risen from 6,300 for the inaugural game in 2000[2] to 34,126 for the latest game in 2010. Starting with the 2008 edition, the game is in competition with the Under Armour All-America Game for the top high school seniors.

Broadcast rights are currently held by NBC Sports.
