Some of the nation’s brightest rising stars were on display Saturday in San Antonio, but Dwight McGlothern refused to be overlooked in his home state.
The Klein Oak cornerback capped off his high school career with a stellar performance in the All-American Bowl, intercepting two passes, including one for a touchdown, to help lead the West to a 33-20 victory against the East inside the cavernous Alamodome.
McGlothern helped secure the outcome with his pick-6 that gave the West a 27-14 advantage late in the third quarter it would not relinquish.
With talent all over the field, not every Texas athlete was able to shine, but plenty got to perform one last time before making the leap to the next level.
Other Texas players to suit up in the contest include:
Jalen Kimber, CB, Mansfield Timberview
Matthew Shipley, P, Liberty Hill
Xavion Alford, S, Shadow Creek
Alfred Collins, DT, Cedar Creek
Jalin Conyers, TE, Gruver
Demond Demas, WR, Tomball
Prince Dorbah, LB, Highland Park
Devin Grant, DL, San Antonio Antonian
Malik Hornsby, QB, Fort Bend Marshall
Daniel Jackson, WR, Cibolo Steele
Andrej Karic, OL, Southlake Carroll
R.J. Mickens, S, Southlake Carroll
Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Rockwall
Now, despite their high-school careers being complete, many of these players will remain in the spotlight as they begin work toward making a collegiate impact or captivating fan bases by signing letters of intent.
