The Army All-American Game is played in Texas and features many of the best players in the state.

Sewo Olonilua will join that exclusive group after receiving his honorary jersey for the Jan. 9 game during the Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance at his school, Kingwood. Olonilua is the first player from the Humble school district selected for the game.

“It’s an honor,” Sewo said, according to yourhoustonnews.com. “Just to wear Army on your chest and for what they do for our country it’s truly an honor.”

Olonilua is a four-star prospect with amazing athletic ability who has been clocked at 4.45 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He is ranked as the No. 14 athlete in the nation and No. 35 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Olonilua committed to TCU and is expected to play defensive back.
