    AUSTIN - On front of hundreds of University of Texas at Austin fans who were at the event and thousands listening in to the pre UT versus Baylor game, Semper Fidelis All-Americans P.J. Mbanasor, Cornerback at Hendrickson High School and Connor Lanfear, Offensive Tackle at Jack C. Hays High School, received their jerseys from Marine Corps Recruiting Station San Antonio Commanding Officer Maj. Matthew Peterson and Staff Noncommissioned Officer in Charge of Recruiting Sub Station Austin South Gunnery Sgt. Dario Hernandez.

    The event took place during the "Real Heroes" segment of 104.9 “The Horn” Radio Gameday Broadcast.

    Their selection to the Semper Fi Bowl symbolizes the trust and confidence the Marine Corps has in the two athletes to represent the West team said Peterson.

    “Since 1775 the Marine Corps has been showing our enemies across the world that we are the few and the proud,” said Peterson before presenting them with the jerseys. “So it is appropriate (for us to present these jerseys to you), on behalf of the Marine Corps, as you go across the borders of this great state, to show others that you are the few and the proud out of Texas high school players, which are the best football players in the Nation.”
