Parade.com has released their 2017 All-American Team for high school football athletes. The writers selected their players based on senior seasons and division 1 potential for offense and based on playmakers and athletes on defense. Recent Oregon quarterback commit Braxton Burmeister headlines the quarterback position for the first team.

Parade also has Burmeister listed as a 'rising star' along with Texas linebacker prospect and Texas A&M commit Anthony Hines:

The son of 1981 Parade All-American and eventual Washington Redskin Danny Burmeister threw for 4,461 yards and 53 touchdowns as a senior, while rushing for 1,470 yards and 27 scores—that’s 5,931 total yards and 80 TDs for those keeping score at home. In his career, he finished with 11,512 yards passing and 127 touchdowns while rushing for 3,459 yards and 68 more scores. In a year with many great prep quarterbacks, Burmeister truly stood out.

Burmeister flipped his commitment from Arizona to Oregon earlier this month after receiving an offer from Willie Taggart.
