All-American Bowl excitement gets started every fall when each All-American athlete and marching band member is honored during a celebratory event at their school in front of classmates, teammates and bandmates, family members, school administrators and media.

The All-American Bowl Selection Tour kicks off in September each year and recognizes more than 200 high school senior football and marching band members as the best in the country — All-Americans.

Selection as an All-American is an important, prestigious and uncommon honor.  Of every eligible senior football player and band member, only the best of the best are revered as All-Americans.

The Selection Tour has grown each year since its inception over a decade ago and has executed more than 1,300 events and reached more than a million people to date in the aggregate.  In addition to the press conferences and pep rallies that take place at their respective high schools, All-Americans have also been recognized in front of thousands more as honored guests at NFL games, major college football match-ups, and regional and national band competitions.
