Monrovia’s Kurt Scoby nominated to play in US Army All-American Bowl …

Monrovia running back Kurt Scoby is nominated to play in next January’s US Army All-American Bowl.

I incorrectly reported that La Mirada’s Dallis Todd and Tyler Luatua were the only local players nominated to play in the game, but Scoby is also on the list.

If chosen, Scoby would be the second player recently from Monrovia to play in the game. Ellis McCarthy played in the 2012 game and is now at UCLA.

The US Army All-American Bowl has become a major recruiting event because it is televised nationally by NBC and many players make their college selections known during the broadcast.

      You’re dead on. I will lose a ton of respect for this game.
      Think of all the other kids who put the time in and did things the right way.

        Get on the committee, boycott, write a letter to the board…this kid has done things the right way….if you had been through what he has…..it might be the State Prison or worse….He is doing well for himself despite some bad advice from adults… However, I am sure you knew everything at the ages 14-18…Enough already. How about getting some respect for yourself….

    Hey Aram…

    Don’t beat yourself up over a small mistake like this…! I’m sure that if the kid were playing in Division 1 or 2 you wouldn’t have ignore him. Oh wait…! The carpet bagger did once play in these higher divisions…!

    Anyway, Its easy to forget about Division 11.5 way down there at the bottom of all of the CIF divisions…!

    And another thing you need grades to play in this Army game
