All it takes is 2,871 yards and 21 TDs in order to go to one of the most elite bowls for high school football players. And since Brad Kaaya’s all that, the senior made it to the U.S. Marines Semper Fidelis All American Bowl.
“Feels good to get to play against athletes on this level because it’ll give me a taste of what college football will be like and lets me prep for it,” Kaaya told The Talon.
Kaaya, a Miami commit, can claim his spot as one of the nation’s top high school QBs. The Jan. 5 Semper Fi Bowl, at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., picks only the best of the best. Players assigned to either a West or East team hold top college commits.
Mr. Kaaya, along with three others, probably will play for the West, giving him even more experience of what it’s like to be with the rest of the best. He plans to team up with Shay Fields, a University of Southern California commit from St. John Bosco in Bellflower, Calif. We wish our Eagle the best, because he is, and luck has nothing to do with it.
