The Army All-American game, played annually in San Antonio since 2002, has seen its fair share of great college and NFL talent.
The game, which features some of the top high school prospects in the country, has produced a No. 1 overall draft pick, multiple NFL Pro Bowlers and two SEC Heisman Trophy winners.
The 2017 game will be played on Saturday at 1 p.m. ET. Here is a look at some of the past SEC stars to play in the game:
The Florida Gators star played in the 2006 game before heading off to Gainesville. In his time in college, Tebow won two national championships, a Heisman Trophy and broke a number of Gators records. He was a first-round draft pick in the NFL Draft and is now an analyst for SEC Network. He also plays minor-league baseball for the New York Mets.
Before winning the Thorpe Award for being the nation’s best defensive back, Berry took part in the 2007 game. The Atlanta native went on to star at Tennessee before becoming an All-Pro NFL safety. He and the Kansas City Chiefs finished the season 12-4 and won the AFC West division this season.
The 2010 Army All-American game featured two Texas A&M tackles who went in the first round of the NFL Draft. We’ll start first with Matthews. He was the starting right tackle for the 2012 Texas A&M team before flipping over to the left side for the 2013 team. The Atlanta Falcons picked Matthews with the No. 6 selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. Matthews helped the Falcons lead the NFL in scoring this season.
The other first-round tackle to play in the 2010 game was Ogbuehi. When Matthews moved to left tackle, Ogbuehi took his place at right tackle. After Matthews left, Ogbuehi took his spot once again. Despite an ACL injury in his senior year, the Cincinnati Bengals still took him with the No. 21 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Beckham participated in the 2011 game and then went on to star at LSU. Beckham was taken with the No. 12 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Since entering the league he has hauled in 288 catches, a record for the most by a player in his first three seasons. Beckham’s New York Giants take on Green Bay this weekend.
Henry set the single-season SEC rushing record but before he did that, he was a participant in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American game. The Alabama running back rushed for 2,219 yards in his junior season, which was enough to win the Heisman Trophy. The Tennessee Titans picked Henry in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Much like Henry did, Allen has become a star at Alabama. He to played in the 2013 game and now he is the best defensive player in college football. Allen took home a number of awards and has led Alabama to another national title-game appearance. Allen will play his final collegiate game on Jan. 9, when the Crimson Tide take on Clemson.
Along with his Georgia teammate Sony Michel, Chubb took part in the 2014 game. He’s since become Georgia’s second all-time leading rusher. Both Chubb and Michel made the decision to return to Georgia for the 2017 season.
Guice led the SEC in rushing this past season, but before that he was setting records in the Army All-American game. In the 2015 game, Guice set the record for longest play, a 92-yard reception, and the most receiving yards in one game, with 153 yards on just two receptions. The record-setting performance earned him MVP honors for the game.
Like Guice the year before, Patterson was another SEC-bound MVP. The Ole Miss quarterback took home the award before starting the final three games at Ole Miss this season. The quarterback showed why he was the country’s No. 1 quarterback recruit for the 2016 class in a thrilling road win over Texas A&M.
