senior linebacker Antonio Morrison was presented with his Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl jersey Monday by representatives from the United States Marine Corps and Junior Rank.
In July, Morrison, one of the in the country, was named to the inaugural squad, which will take place in Phoneix on Jan. 3 and be broadcast on the CBS Sports Network.
Morrison, who has verbally committed to play for the University of Florida next season, said it was a great honor to be chosen to play alongside the best high school players in the country.
“This young man is the best linebacker to come out of Bolingbrook High School,” said Raiders football head coach John Ivlow.
Morrison, a three-year varsity starter for BHS, notched 77 tackles, six of them for losses, and one sack during the regular season this season. He also forced one fumble and recovered two others.
An outstanding student in the classroom as well, Morrison has a 3.2 grade point average and will graduate in January, a semester earlier than the rest of his classmates.
While he played defensive end as a sophomore and outside linebacker as a junior and senior, Florida recruited Morrison as a middle linebacker.
Morrison’s Raiders will meet Mt. Carmel at 6 p.m. Saturday in Bolingbrook in the second round of the IHSA state playoffs.
