UA Game jersey tour: Bryan Mone
By Gerry Hamilton
Defensive tackle Bryan Mone (Salt Lake City, Utah/Highland High) was presented his honorary game jersey during the American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the 2014 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game at Highland High School in Salt Lake City on Friday.
Michigan commit Bryan Mone, who is No. 76 in the ESPN 300 and the No. 5 DT, is excited about the opportunity to play in the Under Armour Game.
Mone, a Michigan commitment, is one of 90 players selected to compete in the seventh-annual Under Armour All-America Game, which will be played at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Jan. 2. It will be televised on ESPN at 4 p.m. ET.
“I would like to thank my God, my family, my teammates, my coaches, my school American Family Insurance and Under Armour.” Mone said. “Thank you.”
The powerful and quick defensive tackle understands the prestige of being selected to play in the Under Armour All-America Game.
"I feel really lucky. I'm blessed and humbled that ESPN picked me, so I'm very thankful,” he said. “I am most looking forward to getting out there and just having fun because that's what everyone says. It's not business, it's just having fun.”
The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Mone is No. 76 in the ESPN 300 and the No. 5 defensive tackle in the nation. He committed to Michigan over offers from Arizona State, Oregon, UCLA, BYU, Ole Miss and a number of others.
