Briar Woods’ Rolin Receives All-American Jersey

The senior linebacker has committed to play for the University of South Carolina next year.

Briar Woods senior Matt Rolin received his honorary game jersey for the 2013 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game during a ceremony Oct. 5 at the school.

Rolin, who has committed to the University of South Carolina, is one of 90 players selected to compete in the sixth-annual Under Armour All-America Game, a competition spotlighting the country’s top high school seniors and featured on ESPN. The 2013 game is set for 5 p.m. on Jan. 4 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL.

"Thank you to Under Armour and American Family Insurance for selecting me to play in this game,” Rolin said in a press release from game organizers. “Thank you to my coaches, parents and teachers for helping me along the way. And, finally, thank you to my team.”

The presentation came during a Homecoming week pep rally.

"For the second time in two years we're celebrating an all-American football player here at Briar Woods high school," said head football coach Charlie Pierce during the rally.
