By Phil Anastasia

Mainland kicker Jim Cooper will play the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Jan. 5 in San Antonio, according to Mainland coach Bob Coffey.

Cooper, a Temple recruit, has 26 career field goals. He needs five to set the all-time South Jersey record.

Cooper will be one of three South Jersey players on the East team at the  annual all-star game, which brings together 90 of the best players in the country.

Timber Creek DT Greg Webb and Eastern DB Eli Woodard also will play in the Army game.

Glassboro's Corey Clement and Woodbury's Anthony Averett have committed to play in the Semper Fidelis All-American game Jan. 4 in Carson City, Cal.

And several South Jersey players such as Timber Creek's Myles Nash and Zaire Williams, Oakcrest's Brandon Bell, Williamstown's Buddy Brown and Wildwood's Wes Hills have committed to play in the Chesapeake Bowl next summer.
