Norcross (GA) High Top247 tight end Lawson Lucky was honored as part of the All-American Bowl on Wednesday, awarded his jersey during the Road to the Dome series.
247Sports named the Georgia commit the #2 tight end in the nation.
“It was great,” Lucky said. “I received an invitation at the end of my high school career and it is a great memory that I can stop and share it with my teammates. There were a lot of my guys here and everyone was happy for me, it was a great moment.”
The All-American Bowl has been the nation’s premier high school sporting event for 20 years and will return to San Antonio, Texas on January 7, 2023, where it will air live on national NBC. Over 20,000 fans flock to the Alamo Dome.
“I’m excited to compete against the best in the country and see how I do, and I’m excited to compete against the best of the best and succeed,” Lucky said.
Game alumni including Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Trevor Lawrence, Keenan Allen, Odell Beckham Jr., Stephon Diggs, Marchon Lattimore, Chase Young, Naji Harris, Mika Parsons, Patrick Petersonderrick Henry, Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott as well as Quenton Nelson. Game legends include Adrian Peterson and Joe Thomas.
“It’s crazy to be mentioned in the same row as some of those guys, the legends that used to be, to play with them in the same game and play on the same team is a real honor.”
Lucky has been in Georgia since January.
“I’m too busy with Georgia,” Lucky said.
“What they do with their tight ends, I think Hartley is one of the best tight end coaches in the country, if not the best. I don’t think there is an OC in the country that loves tight ends as much as Monken. This room should open soon.”
Alabama is another program for Lucky.
“They don’t have much in the (tight end) room at all,” Lucky said. “There is much less resistance along the way. It’s not always better, but it’s something to think about too.”
Lucky added that he was not sure if he would be at the Iron Cup this weekend, a visit he had been planning to make in a few weeks.
