Washington's Floyd to play in Army All-American Bowl

In a ceremony Monday at George Washington, 6-foot-3, 310-pound senior lineman Sharrif Floyd was recognized for his selection to play for the East squad in the 10th annual U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

The game is scheduled for Jan. 9, 2010, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The 1 p.m. contest will be televised live on NBC.

Floyd, a Division I-A recruit, will become part of an event that launched the careers of NFL players Adrian Peterson, Reggie Bush and Vince Young.

Last season, Northeast wideout Je’Ron Stokes (now at Michigan) and Cardinal O’Hara QB Tom Savage (Rutgers) participated in the all-star gala.
