Damien celebrates Carew’s selection

Senior Tanner Carew was the man of the hour today at Damien High School.

The Oregon-bound football standout was named to the prestigious U.S. Army All American Bowl to be played in January in San Antonio, Tex. Just 90 players nationwide were selected. Representatives from the game and the Armed Services were on hand to formally present Carew with his jersey in a noon gathering in the Senior Quad.

It’s an honor because of the caliber of player chosen for the event. There are lots of senior All-Star games, locally and throughout the country. But this one puts added emphasis on character and leadership – attributes the armed services embrace.

Carew saw the game on television for the first time when he was in the fourth grade and told dad Marty it was one he would like to participate. Well that goal has come to fruition. He’ll be a great representative of Damien High School, the Inland Valley and Southen California.
