The tradition continued Thursday when Frank Martin II and Curtis Robinson added their names to the list of Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) players selected for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Current Duke linebacker Ben Humphreys represented the school last year, but the lineage goes much deeper to players like quarterback Matt Barkley and wide receiver Victor Blackwell, among others.

“I’m living up to the tradition at Mater Dei,” Robinson told 247Sports.com. “It seems like we have a player in that game every year.”

The players received their honorary jerseys Thursday when the Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance came to their school.

Robinson is ranked as the No. 8 outside linebacker in the nation and the No. 15 recruit in the state of California by the 247Sports Composite rankings. He is a Stanford commit and plans to take his official visit in January.

Martin, at 6-5 and 301 pounds, is the No. 17 offensive tackle and No. 25 recruit in California.

A USC commit, Martin says he is still in daily contact with the current coaching staff following the dismissal of Steve Sarkisian. He has an official visit planned to Texas A&M in early November and also hopes to make an official to Michigan.
