Horizon High School hosted a ceremony for football team kicker and punter Daniel Case Melo Porto to receive his U.S. Army All-American team jersey and helmet Tuesday, Dec. 6.
According to the U.S. Army Bowl's website, the Bowl features "a network of 50 scouts and recruiting partners from around the nation and world to help identify the best players at each grade level and position."
During the review process for athlete selection, the scouts review an athlete based on different aspects such as physical ability, skill ability, character and game film. Approximately 10,000 athletes are observed and reviewed annually.
Case Melo Porto became the first Hawk in school's history to be named to the team and will be traveling to Frisco, Texas, later this month to participate in the U.S. Army Bowl, America’s High School All-Star Game, at 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17.
