WARSAW, Ind. – Andrew Mevis, a senior football player from Warsaw High School, was presented his honorary game jersey at the American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the 2017 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game at Warsaw High School today. The event was part of the three-month American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the Under Armour All-America Game.
Mevis is one of more than 100 players selected to compete in the tenth annual Under Armour All-America Game presented by American Family Insurance, a nationally televised competition spotlighting the country’s top high school seniors. The 2017 Under Armour All-America Game is slated for Sunday, Jan. 1 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. and will be televised live on ESPN at 1 p.m. EST.
“My dream is to be the best specialist I can be and inspire younger kids to do the same,” said Mevis.
As the quintessential champion of dreams, along with the encouragement of family members, coaches, friends and communities, American Family Insurance is honored to salute student-athletes as they work hard to pursue their dreams. Under Armour All-Americans embody American Family Insurance core values, including hard work, inspiration, dedication and committed support from those around them.
“Dreams are not wishes; dreams are not achieved without a plan, a lot of hard work and dedication,” said Telisa Yancy, chief marketing officer for American Family Insurance. “American Family Insurance is honored to celebrate the achievements of these young student-athletes who pursue their dreams tirelessly and make the commitment to do whatever it takes to make them come true.”
Those dreams would not be possible without a great support system. Along with saluting Andrew Mevis, American Family Insurance recognized his kicking coach, Cole Richards, with the American Family Insurance Dream Champion Award.
The American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the Under Armour All-America Game continues Friday, Nov. 11, when Anthony Hines III (Plano East High School – Plano, Texas) will receive his jersey at Plano East High School.
