2024 AAB 25th Anniversary Press Release (Landscape)_20240116.jpg
As the nation’s premier high school sporting event for 25 years, the All-American Bowl has historically featured 100 of the top senior high school football players from across the country. The All-American Bowl is played in the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX and is broadcast annually on NBC and Peacock. The All-American Bowl is the most-watched and highest-attended high school sporting event in the country.
Since its inception in December of 2000, the All-American Bowl has featured high school senior football players. Moving forward, the game will start to include the top high school juniors who will suit up to play alongside top senior upperclassmen from across the country.
“Given the changing landscape at the collegiate level, our senior participants are graduating high school earlier and enrolling in and attending college as early as December. As a result, the All-American Bowl is pivoting to now include top juniors for the upcoming 2025 All-American Bowl,” said Jon Miller, President, Acquisitions and Partnerships of NBC Sports, owner-operator of the event. “This change will allow more top juniors to make their college declarations on network television.” The 2025 All-American Bowl will be played Saturday, January 11th, 2025, which marks the 25th anniversary of the game.
The All-American Bowl has featured future Heisman Trophy winners and several hundred NFL players, including San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey, Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver and 2020 Heisman winner DeVonta Smith, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence, and Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
