Senior safety Arrion Springs (San Antonio, Texas/Roosevelt 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 Theodore Roosevelt High School in San Antonio, Texas on Sept. 18.
Springs, an Oregon commitment, is the No. 30 ranked prospect overall, and the No. 6 cornerback in the class. He committed to Oregon over Florida State, Texas, Miami, Oklahoma, Baylor, Notre Dame and others.
"I just want to say thank you to everyone that supported me throughout this journey," Springs said. "My mom, dad, grandma, my fried Trey, coach [Matt] Carroll. I just want to thank all of you guys,"
Roosevelt High head coach Matt Carroll knows this means a lot to not only Springs, but all of his teammates.
"What Arrion means to this team is certainly a big deal, and what he brings to this team," said Carroll. "I think he would tell it to you better than me, how important it is for his teammates, the guys that he is with everyday ... throughout his high school playing years, what it meant to him and how much it meant to our football program. We wish you well, and look forward to it."
Springs grew up watching the Under Armour All-America Game, and is looking forward to playing with and against friends on a world wide stage.
"It means a lot to be an Under Armour All-America because I grew up watching it, and now to be able to play in it is an honor," he said. "This is a world wide station, so everybody gets to watch me play. I'm looking forward to guarding Malachi [Dupre], just play with Jamal [Adams], Tony Brown and Jalen Tabor ... we became really close."
