Jordan Elliot, a senior at HISD’s Westside High School, was recently selected by the U.S. Army to participate in its 2016 All-American Bowl.
Jordan is one of about 90 students to be chosen from across the nation, and the only one from HISD schools. He is also the second Westside senior to be selected for this honor. Westside graduate Frank Ileanacho (Class of 2014) played in the 2015 bowl.
“Jordan was invited to play not only because of his outstanding athleticism on the field, but also because of his impressive academic record,” said Westside HS Communications Liaison Jane Miller. “He also exemplifies the character traits spelled out in the U.S. Army’s tag line — LDRSHIP: loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage.”
The 2016 U.S. Army All-American Bowl will take place on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016, at noon (CST) at the Alamodome in San Antonio. To see the complete player roster, click here.
