Lowrie selected to All American Bowl

By ERIC LUCERO
Express sports

Jacob Lowrie, the Winters High School all-time yardage leader and scoring leader, has been selected to play in the Blue-Grey All American Bowl all star game. On Dec. 14, Lowrie will be playing football at AT&T Stadium where the Dallas Cowboys play along with 44 other members of the West squad.
Lowrie will participate in practice on Dec. 12, and then again on Saturday, Dec. 13, attend a media night on Saturday night and then play on Sunday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. The game will be carried by the new Impact Football Network and streamed across the country.
“It feels great to be selected for such a big game,” said Lowrie. “I am looking forward to playing with high caliber athletes. It will be an eye opening experience that will give me an idea of what the next level will be like.”
Coach Daniel Ward felt the same way about the opportunity that Lowrie did.
“I think it’s awesome,” Ward said. “It is an amazing opportunity for him. He will get to play against some of the top athletes in the country. A lot of them have already signed full ride scholarships to some really big schools. It will be interesting to see how he stacks up. I am very excited for him.”
Lowrie was selected by a coach at a camp he attended in the off-season who recommended him after he saw him play.
“I never dreamed about playing at AT&T Stadium,” Lowrie said. “Its going to be a great experience.”
When asked how he feels about playing another game right after a long season Lowrie had no hesitation to strap on the pads.
“Any chance I get to play again I will,” Lowrie stated. “I am grateful for all of the support from the community and my family. It is a huge honor to be able to represent the town of Winters in such a big venue and I’m looking forward to showing them what this small town boy can do.
“Hopefully this will open doors for other future athletes at Winters High School and allow others to see that our town can produce athletes that can play at the next level, just like what Abbey Mariani is doing with softball.”
Lowrie plans on playing college ball next fall but has yet to decide where that will be.
