James Wilder Jr. of Plant isn’t the area’s only junior to have received an invite to play in the 2011 U.S. Army All-America Game. Countryside OT Tyler Moore also got one.
Moore’s father, Brian, confirmed this news Saturday night.
The 6-foot-6, 290-pound Moore is likely to be ranked among the country’s top prospects next season. In 2009, he anchored a dominant Countryside line.
Moore committed to Nebraska a few months ago. Florida was his runnerup.
Tampa Catholic QB/ATH Christian Green is playing in this year's U.S. Army All-America Game.
Selections to the game are made by a committee that includes Rivals.com recruiting analysts.
More than 90 U.S. Army game alums have played in the NFL.
