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.
