Notre Dame commit Lugg receives Army Bowl jersey

Notre Dame Top247 offensive tackle commit Joshua Lugg received his jersey to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Friday during a presentation at his Wexford (Pa.) North Allegheny High School.

“It was great,” Lugg said. “It was awesome, pretty incredible, all my teammates, and cheerleaders and band, it was a great thing to be part of.”

The 6-foot-7, 293-pound Lugg will play his final high school football game as a U.S. Army All-American, Jan. 7 in San Antonio, Texas.

NBC will have the national broadcast from inside the Alamo Dome.

The tradition of the Army Bowl is special with many going on to success on Saturdays and over 300 former Army All-Americans having been selected in the NFL Draft including the likes of Andrew Luck, Odell Beckham Jr., Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson and Patrick Peterson.

Lugg and company will play for 35,000-plus fans, many of them servicemen and servicewomen.

“It’s huge,” Lugg said. “A lot of my family has served in the military and to be able to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in front of the military is a huge honor.”

The industry-generated 247Sports Composite ranks Lugg as the country's No. 23 offensive tackle.
