Congratulations to senior standouts Jordan Johnson of DeSmet and Antonio Doyle of Lutheran North on being selected to the U.S. Army All-American Game, which will be held on January 4 in San Antonio, Texas.
The two players received their All-American game jerseys in special ceremonies at their respective schools last week. Johnson is a five-star wide receiver who has committed to Notre Dame. Doyle is a four-star linebacker who has narrowed his final three choices to Missouri, Illinois and Texas A&M.
