The 2021 All-American Bowl has been scrapped according to a press release from the event’s organizers.
The game, played in San Antonio every January, features some of the best high school talent across the country. In its place, NBC will air “All-American Bowl: Declaration Day,” a special honoring the top players on Jan. 2.
“Our priority is on the health and safety of players, their friends and family, and everyone associated with the Bowl,” said Gary Quinn, Vice President, Programming & Owned Properties, NBC Sports. “While we will miss the Bowl in San Antonio this year, we look forward to celebrating all 100 athletes joining the All-American Bowl family and recognizing their hard work and dedication on Jan. 2 on NBC.”
Barrett Carter and Jeremiah Trotter Jr, both 2021 linebacker prospects that are currently committed to Clemson, had already accepted invitations to play in this years event.
