While attending an Offense­-Defense Football Camp in Houston, Texas this summer, 8-year-old Richard Montgomery, Jr., of Geismar, was named an Offense­-Defense All­-American and invited to participate in the 11t h Annual Offense-­Defense Bowl Week festivities taking place at Fifth Third Bank Stadium, located on the beautiful campus of Kennesaw State University in Atlanta, Ga.

Montgomery, a quarterback for the St. Amant Wildcats, was selected for this honor from an outstanding group of thousands of athletes across the country and played well representing the Wildcats, easily validating the Bowl Selection Committee's choice in tabbing him for the All­-American tilt.

The Offense-­Defense All­-American Bowl is the culmination of a week worth of events.

The 11th Annual All­-American game is just one of many things that this week encompasses. Also included is an all-­star football game showcasing 88 of the top high-school seniors in the country, and has featured current NFL pros such as Cam Newton, Joe Haden and Dez Bryant, among others.
