Another SA-area football standout added to US Army All-American Bowl roster
Steele's Brenden Brady added to roster, 3rd local player to participate in game
SAN ANTONIO – A third player from the San Antonio area will take part in Saturday’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl game at the Alamodome.
Steele High School running back Brenden Brady was added to the West roster on Monday and practiced with the team on Tuesday.
Brady said he was in shock when he got a phone call asking if he wanted to play in the game. He did not even recognize the phone number.
"I never would have thought I would get this opportunity, but just getting the call and being able to come out here and play with some of the best athletes in the nation is amazing," Brady said.
