Dietrich Riley to play in Under Armour All-American Game

In just a few weeks, St. Francis star Dietrich Riley will make his decision on where he’ll play football on Saturdays. He said he’s going to miss the innocence of high school football, such as when little kids run up to him and offer him water during games. “In college it’s all business,” he said. He’ll get one more chance to cherish high school football on Jan. 2 when he takes part in the 2010 Under Armour All-American Game. The third annual event quickly has become one of the nation’s most premiere all-star showcase events. The game will be played at Tropicana Field in St Petersburg, Florida and televised live on ESPN. The daily practices and the skills challenge will also be shown on ESPN networks. Riley is one of seven players from California chosen for the prestigious game, and joining him are Corona running back Jordon James; Oaks Christian quarterback Nick Montana; Former La Salle and current San Clemente quarterback Chase Rettig; Lakewood quarterback Jesse Scroggins; Palmdale cornerback Joshua Shaw; and Don Antonio Lugo defensive tackle George Uko. Click here for the complete roster. Scout.com’s JC Shurburtt writes that judging by the early list of players committed to the 2010 Under Armour High School All-American game, this year’s version is on its way to being the best yet. No wonder USC football coach Pete Carroll (below) took in an end zone view of Riley earlier this year. With well over a dozen offers from major Division I schools, USC, UCLA, Florida, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Cal and Washington appear to be on Riley’s top of his list as they all make a final push to get his signature on their letter of intent.

Soon we’ll know.
