Story by Sgt. Tyler J. Bolken
GLENDALE, Ariz. - U.S. Marine Corps Captains Matthew Browning and Jeffrey Arroyo, of Marine Corps Recruiting Station Phoenix, presented a Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl jersey to Matt Bushman, tight end for Sabino High School of Tucson, Ariz., during halftime of the sold out Houston Texans versus the Arizona Cardinals football game at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., Nov. 10, 2013.
Bushman, an 18-year-old senior, was selected as a Semper Fi All-American for his dedication in the classroom, the community and on the gridiron.
“It’s an honor to know I was chosen for how I act on and off the field,” said Bushman, who has committed to Brigham Young University to play both baseball and football after a two-year LDS mission.
Bushman, 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, has 26 touchdowns and more than 1,200 yards receiving for the 9-2 Sabino Sabercats. His team will continue their trek through the Arizona state playoffs in their second round matchup versus Scottsdale Saguaro, Nov. 15, 2013.
The Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl will be played at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., Jan. 5, 2014, and will air live on Fox Sports 1 at 9 p.m. EST/6p.m. PST.
