ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. - Kenyon Frison is Recognized for Academic and Athletic Excellence; Selected to Play in Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.

The United States Marine Corps is recognizing exemplary student athletes across the country through the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. Now in its third year, the game will feature 90 student athletes selected from across the country based on their athletic prowess, academic success and embodiment of the Marine Corps values of honor, courage and commitment.

Frison, from Granger High School, West Valley City, UT, is among those selected to participate in the nationally televised Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. The game will be broadcast on January 5, 2014, live on Fox Sports 1 at 6 p.m. PST from the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

The student athletes selected for the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl exhibit a drive similar to Frison in that they have more than outstanding athletic ability – they also exemplify youth leadership and are committed to building life skills both on and off the field.

“I really want to come out here and show these coaches that Utah has some players,” said Frison. “I’m trying to put out for my hometown.”

The Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl is the culmination of the Marine Corps’ Semper Fidelis Football Program, which also includes an All-American Selection Tour. Through the program, the Marine Corps purposefully engages with well-rounded student athletes to share leadership lessons that will enable future success.

“[Training with the Marines] is difficult,” said Frison. “I didn’t expect it, I thought it was going to be fun and games. But, it’s going to get us right for the game, I can’t complain.”
