Alonso junior defensive lineman Anthony Chickillo had been invited to participate in this year’s U.S. Army All-America national combine, one of the top showcase combines for underclassmen and essentially a tryout for the next years U.S. Army All-America Game.

The three-day event is slated for Jan. 7-9 at the Alamodome in San Antonio and it similar to the NFL combine in format, with players competing in various skills competitions and drills. He will compete in front of the U.S. Army All-America Game selection committee.

Chickillo, who transferred from Gaither, owns scholarship offers from FIU and Miami, as the Times first reported in June. He missed a month and a half with a collarbone injury he suffered in Alonso’s season opener.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder is averaging 11.8 tackles in four games. He also has eight sacks, including four in one game against Brandon in the season opener.
